Arliss is a senior vice president responsible for business operations within our North American Buildings practice. Throughout all aspects of practice, Arliss is committed to building collaborative relationships and to the adoption of innovation approaches that achieve impactful design and business outcomes.
Her approach to business is founded in people; whether engaging our clients, our teams, the benefactors of our work, or our community partners. It’s not enough to simply create a design—the outcome should be something we’re proud to have in our backyard. As residents of the communities we design, we don’t take that responsibility lightly.
An integral part of her people-focused philosophy is the value of diversity in the workplace. Arliss sits on Stantec’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, actively advocating to encourage everyone to bring their unique perspective to problem solving. Diverse viewpoints inspire innovative thinking, which Stantec strives to foster in our corporate culture.
Arliss is proud to be part of a global company that gives back to our local communities while positioning them to move forward. Lending our creativity to game-changing projects like the Calgary Cancer Centre or the BMO Convention Centre expansion, Arliss is inspired by the opportunity to shape the communities she serves.
