Diversity & Inclusion


We are an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation holder, endorsed by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, and we want to ensure that the engineering and construction industry is one where each and every person feels valued. At Clough we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment that accepts and recognises every person, embraces their strengths and differences, and provides opportunities for all people to achieve their highest potential. 

Diversity brings broader knowledge, perspectives, ideas, and experiences to our projects, and that is invaluable to our community, our business, and our clients.


We strive to ensure our workforce reflects the communities in which we work and live, and have built a team of extraordinary talents from a wide range of cultures, backgrounds and skills. This diversity is what makes Clough a great place to work.

Our commitments run in parallel with our actions. We are ever-evolving, continually developing new and better ways forward for our people and our business. We are proud of the recognitions we have been awarded and commit fully to upholding and growing on our commitments every single day.  

We aim to attract, train and retain people who:

  • live Clough’s principles as their own,
  • are highly capable, and
  • have a desire to actively contribute to the success of the business.


In 2022, Clough was granted its second Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). Clough was one of few organisations in our industry to receive this recognition, and it is one that we are incredibly proud to hold.

Clough received its first WGEA EOCGE citation for the 2019-20 period.

Clough is a proud partner of Pride in Diversity, Australia’s first and only national not-for-profit employer support program for all aspects of LGBTQAI+ workplace inclusion.

We are an active member of CEOs for Gender Equity and an approved WORK180 Endorsed Employer for All Women. Clough was recognised for a number of initiatives we offer, including flexible working, 16 weeks paid parental leave to primary carers, access to a variety of learning and development programs, amongst others.

Clough’s third Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia in April 2024. 

Since the commencement of our RAP journey in 2020, we have embedded 117 actions and initiatives to drive positive change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples by delivering employment, education, and business opportunities and providing our workforce with experiences to reflect on and immerse themselves in the world’s oldest continuing living cultures.

Our vision for reconciliation is to: enable equal participation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples across the nation-building projects we deliver. We will achieve this by delivering meaningful opportunities and pathways to employment, enhancing supplier diversity, and fostering a workforce and environment that embraces, respects, and celebrates the diverse cultures of First Nations Peoples.
