Catherine Peppler Manager Environment

Aurizon is a recognised leader in diversity and inclusion and as a founding member of Aurizon’s LGBTIQ & Allies Network, I am proud to say that I am part of Aurizon’s drive to building a safe, diverse and inclusive workforce across our Regional and Metropolitan locations.

On a personal level, my sexuality, gender and parenting status are accepted as just another part of who I am and have had no impact on my career at Aurizon. Our Network has the full support of our Executive leadership team and has a large number of identifying members and allies based across Australia.

Our focus is on creating a safe and inclusive workplace where everyone can bring their whole self to work.
