Broadspectrum is part of Ferrovial, one of the world's leading infrastructure operators and municipal services companies. The organisation is a provider of asset services and integrated solutions to key industries in the Resources, Energy, Industrial, Infrastructure, Property, Social and Defence sectors.

Broadspectum trusts and supports its people, enabling them to share and apply their collective knowledge across industries and regions, and giving them ongoing opportunities for growth through career experiences, coaching, training and collaborative work.

Like many organisations within these industries, Broadspectrum’s workforce has a majority of male employees. Broadspectrum is working on many initiatives to bring change to this in order to encourage the build of a strong female talent pipeline for the industry, and increase the female participation rate. Broadspectrum Capstone Scholarship in Engineering and IT is a step in this direction. The scholarship aims to promote equality and diversity by providing a female Engineering or IT student with the opportunity to undertake a capstone project in the organisation. The recipient will also have the opportunity to be fast-tracked into the award winning #SpectrumGrad Program after graduating.
