Water Modelling Solutions is so pleased to have won the Most Ambitious Company in Gender Diversity Award 2020. We are aware that we have had strong competition for this award. The companies that also applied for this category, no doubt have very strong Diversity and Inclusion policies, procedures and programs in place. However, we feel that it is not these qualities that made WMS a strong contender; it is our leadership and their ability to engender a culture of diversity through innovative recruitment that considers not only merit but the qualities a person brings to the company. It is through our Leader’s ability to “walk the talk” and through their promotion of every staff member as a diversity leader.
We are a young yet growing company and winning this award lends credibility to an approach that may not be traditional amongst Engineering firms but is nevertheless proving to be successful.
