Our diversity and inclusion

From our corporate workplace to our in-country program delivery, Tetra Tech International Development is focused on creating a more inclusive and equitable world. We value diversity and are committed to providing access to sustainable opportunities for diverse peoples and businesses.

We take action across all our program delivery to ensure all people can participate in and benefit equally from our work. Groups that are marginalised because of their gender, disability, health status, ethnicity, race or age are the most vulnerable to the effects of poverty. Including these groups specifically in development activities is fundamental to eliminating poverty and to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. We also recognise the intersectionality of these issues, and that for integrated solutions to issues of social exclusion to be effective, we need to address social inclusion as a whole and tailor our interventions to context specific issues and challenges.

In line with these commitments, Tetra Tech International Development is a first endorser of the Coalition for Racial and Ethnic Equity in Development (CREED). The CREED reflects our commitment to racial and ethnic equity in the international development and humanitarian assistance sector. Advancing racial and ethnic diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within our own organisations and in our work is an inextricable part of our broad mission to build a more equitable world for all.

Tetra Tech International Development is also a proud supporter of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) Report and project, an ambitious and necessary First Nations and female-led plan for structural change. Tetra Tech International Development supports the Report’s principles, key findings, overarching recommendations and pathways forward. The structural inequalities, poverty, trauma and discrimination that First Nations women and girls live with in Australia today is unacceptable and must be addressed and overcome. Action is critical to respond to the priorities set out in Wiyi Yani U Thangani so all Australians can together achieve First Nations gender justice and equality.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Tetra Tech International Development is a purpose-driven organisation, committed to shaping a world where people, communities, and the planet can thrive.

At Tetra Tech International Development, we are proud to have our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan officially endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. We value diversity and are committed to providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with access to more opportunities to participate in the economy and extending our support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander economic development through employment and business enterprises.

Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities thrive, our lands and waters thrive, and we have a vibrant national identity based on our shared history and inclusion of First Nations people’s unique connection to lands and water, language, law, kinship, and ceremony. In the context of our organisation, this requires building strong and long-lasting relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities that, over time, change the way we work, the insights we bring and the communities we partner with to have a long-lasting positive impact.
