In Our People section for the first quarter, we are shining the light on our women in engineering!
This month we celebrate Anjana Hariharan, our Project Engineer from Sydney Remediation Water team who believes a career in engineering is “incredibly rewarding” and “hopes to inspire more women to take up engineering”, simply because as she puts it “diversity is a powerful thing”.
Who or what inspired you to take up a career in engineering?
At university, I was given the opportunity to do some work in water treatment as an engineering cadet and I was amazed at how you could turn all that theory into an actual treatment plant that benefitted the environment and society.
I absolutely loved the fact that there was a tangible result at the end. That was my turning point where I envisioned myself as an engineer specifically in water treatment.
What attracted you to Enviropacific?
I wanted to expand my horizon and pursue better opportunities as I progressed in my career. Enviropacific provided me with the perfect opportunity to work on bigger and better projects, so I had to take up the opportunity to work here!
What do you enjoy most about working here?
I love how the teams collaborate – everyone is always ready to lend a helping hand when you need it! I’m also impressed by the fact that I’m surrounded by people who have a wealth of knowledge and experience, which makes for great learning.
Tell us a bit about your role and what you looking forward to working on?
My role as a Project Engineer revolves around the delivery of projects. I am looking forward to mobilising on site for Sydney Metro Line-Wide and getting started on building the WTP there.
Looking at the bigger picture, I am also hoping to inspire more girls and women to take up a career in engineering because it’s incredibly rewarding, and diversity is a powerful thing!
