People and Culture Leader Phoebe Ryssenbeek said: “We’re delighted to have Abbie on board. With her expertise, she will further facilitate our culture – one which brings forward diverse people and perspectives to stimulate creativity and innovation, which are hallmarks of Arup.”
Abbie brings a deep understanding of the positive outcomes from creating a work environment where everyone feels valued and respected, regardless of difference, and is encouraged by visible, inclusive leadership.
“My role at Arup is to develop an already strong foundation for a diverse and inclusive workplace, where people can bring their whole selves to work. I see opportunity to support and champion leaders to get the best from diverse teams,” she said.
Abbie will be a core member of Arup’s Australasia Region Diversity and Inclusion Executive. She will work closely with teams on strategies to pursue diversity and inclusion, and support office leaders to develop culture and lead inclusively.
“Through inclusive leadership, diversity of thought can thrive, enabling teams to apply creativity and innovation to design solutions,” she said.
