Embrace the challenge
Rose Clark, CFO UK & Ireland, Arcadis
"Arcadis has worked consistently over the past couple of years to address some of the systemic barriers that can impact our talented women at all stages of their career.
"We welcome the wider focus on the Gender Pay gap – it brings attention to businesses that work in STEM areas and in particular to the construction sector where the gap is more pronounced. Developing and acting on a gender pay action plan creates focus, momentum and accountability. We accept and embrace the challenge.
"We encourage women in our business who want to succeed to be confident in being themselves and not to measure themselves against traditionally male leadership styles or measures of success.
"Role models in our business are now much more diverse than in the past reflecting the value we place on diversity in influencing our culture.
"We encourage you to be true to your personal values.
