Because it matters

We are proud of our diverse and dedicated workforce. Our employees speak about 70 languages, represent some 130 nationalities and work from offices on six continents. Our diversity is a key strength in helping us to understand and meet client needs worldwide.

Therefore, we have developed a Sustainable Business Strategy that includes an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion program. This associated measurement category ensures that we continue to increase diversity across our projects, sectors and corporate functions.

We believe that greater diversity will further strengthen our talent pool, enabling us to better serve clients and achieve our business objectives. This way, we will continue to work towards increasing the number of women in professional and in management positions while offering employees more choices and empowering them to reach their career goals

We are convinced that the different viewpoints and experiences of a diverse workforce offer best value to our clients and our employees.

We are a multi-local company: we assemble teams that cross geographical and cultural boundaries and recruit from around the world.

We want SNC-Lavalin to be an organization where everyone feels included, where everyone is in an environment where they can thrive, where everyone can be their ‘true self’, and where everyone can reach their full potential.

Ian L. Edwards, President and CEO

Our responsibility as a business

  • Promote inclusiveness in our policies, practices and business relationships.
  • Proactively recruit and on-board candidates from a diverse pool of applicants.
  • Raise the awareness of diversity and inclusion through voluntary training, continuous learning and perspective sharing.

In addition, we’re striving to elevate the representation of women in critical roles across our business (such as professionals, managers and senior managers). To succeed at this, we’ve set a target to:

  • Increase the total percentage of women in professional, management and senior management positions to 20% as a minimum.

How we're going to do it

Though the above defines what we are doing, how we do it matters more. As the saying goes, a goal without a plan is just a wish – and we’re not in the business of wishful thinking. We make things happen.

Our plan for progress is defined at a global level, aligned with our wider business strategy and values. Built on 3 pillars, it acts as a guiding principle for all our people across varying business functions and countries.
