Inclusion, Diversity & Equity

Leading with inclusion and achieving equity

At Stantec, we create opportunity by inviting, embracing, and celebrating differences. This goal remains at the heart of our efforts to champion inclusion, diversity, and equity (IDE) throughout our organization. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made and our vision for the future. IDE is now deeply embedded in our organization. We’re committed to improved connection, flexibility, and flow as we continue to grow and evolve.

And what does our next level look like? Stantec leading with inclusion and achieving equity.

Equity is about fair access and opportunity. It means creating an inclusive workplace where our policies and practices empower everyone to have opportunity to succeed while acknowledging and considering different needs and barriers. The inclusive workplace enhances psychological safety and improves wellbeing by encouraging all individuals to celebrate their identity and unique voice.

An inclusive workplace culture attracts and invites the full spectrum of talent into the organization—and it’s the right thing to do.

With every community, we redefine what's possible, and to genuinely fulfill that promise, we commit to equity in design and to be representative of the many communities we serve. We commit to doing our best work for our clients and have a lasting impact on our world.

Inclusion, Diversity & Equity (IDE) councils

We have numerous IDE Councils across our global organization. They each have one important job: to fulfill our Inclusion, Diversity & Equity strategy. Through dialogue, research, and action, each council drives the creation of practices, goals, and objectives to help us achieve a workplace culture where every individual feels welcome and valued and achieves their potential.

Employee resource groups

An employee resource group (ERG) focuses on a diversity affinity. Its members work together to support each other and find solutions to achieve a genuinely inclusive workplace and a diverse workforce. ERGs are open to everyone. Our ERGs include Women@Stantec, Pride@Stantec, BLK, Military and Veteran Advocates, Asians@Stantec, Persons with Disabilities, Latinos in Stantec, Neurodiversity@Stantec, and REACH@Stantec.
