Stantec and Diversity

stantec

Since 1954, Stantec’s local strength, knowledge, and relationships, coupled with its world-class expertise, have allowed them to go anywhere to meet their clients' needs in more creative and personalized ways. With a long-term commitment to the people and places they serve, Stantec has the unique ability to connect to projects on a personal level and advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.

Stantec’s employees are active members of the communities they serve. That's why Stantec always designs with community in mind. The Stantec community unites more than 22,000 employees working in over 400 locations. They collaborate across disciplines and industries to bring buildings, energy and resource, environmental, and infrastructure projects to life. Their work—professional consulting in planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management, and project economics—begins at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. 

Stantec keeps you moving.

Stantec creates the connections that move people and goods from here to there. Stantec provides planning, engineering, and infrastructure management services that improve the traveler experience. Stantec’s focus is always on providing solutions that respect the local environment – regardless if it’s a major expressway, transit system or airport design, or a local roadway.

At Stantec, engineering the various components of a transportation network doesn’t mean success. They also need to meet the needs of the people traveling every day. Stantec is more than design, they’re people working towards the same goal – to help others get where they’re going in a safe and efficient way.

Stantec is better together.

The key to Stantec’s success is its people. People, passion, and progress have made the firm what it is today, and created the foundation for what it will be tomorrow. Stantec strives to attract leaders, and partnering with WTS International is a significant way they help advance women in transportation. Whether through leadership opportunities, connections to workforce programs, or recruiting talent, WTS offers crucial elements that assist in a professional’s success.

Stantec develops employees with diverse talents and perspectives to ensure a wide depth of skills within the organization. Diversity - in age, gender, race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, belief, education, physical ability, personality, and experiences– create a global environment ripe for success.   Stantec maximizes each employee’s potential by valuing their differences.

Diversity and inclusion create an atmosphere of trust and respect. Diversity awareness and skill-building lays the foundation for an inclusive environment where employees do their best work and serve clients at a high level.

And, diversity is good for business. Diversity management practices can lead to employee commitment and engagement, and provide employees with a broader worldview when dealing with challenges. Research shows that homogeneous teams are less likely to produce innovative solutions. A diverse team can overcome challenges and develop creative solutions by accessing the group’s wealth of experiences and varying perspectives. In other words, a diverse team is a more effective, creative, and better-functioning team – exactly why Stantec embraces diversity in the workplace.

Success Stories

Stantec continues to provide opportunities for its staff to further their personal and professional development. Through programs like Women@Stantec, they offer a forum to share ideas, build internal connections, develop professional relationships, engage with different constituencies across geographic locations; and drive business value.

In addition, women are encouraged to participate and take leadership roles in organizations like WTS and ITE, among others. In support of the National Society of Professional Engineers “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day,”, a large group Stantec’s female engineers assembled successful career tips for current and aspiring engineers that was shared across social media channels.  

Stantec’s commitment to valuing diversity is reflected in its value statements:

·       We put people first

·       We are better together

·       We do what is right

·       We are driven to achieve
