Inclusion & Diversity

We promote a work environment where all team members are respected, valued, and safe to be their authentic selves at work.

We know that a strong commitment to Inclusion and Diversity will enrich our culture, our workforce, and the industries and sectors where we operate. As individuals with different backgrounds and perspectives, we tackle challenges and promote innovation together. As a team, we can work to uphold an inclusive and safe environment where differences are embraced, and diverse ideas are welcomed.

Examples of our commitment

Supporting our employees

To ensure diverse voices are represented, our Inclusion and Diversity Councils are made up of members from diverse lived experiences and perspectives. Collaborating with our Employee Resource Groups, the councils support and identify best practices, share knowledge, raise awareness, and act as a bridge across underrepresented groups.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are communities for Ledcor employees that foster trusted, safe spaces for underrepresented groups and allies: Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC); People with Disabilities; Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA); Womens; and Veterans.

At monthly ERG meetings, employees come together to discuss experiences around identity and mental wellness and how to educate, support, and strengthen a culture of inclusion in both our professional and personal lives.

Building our awareness and knowledge

We actively work to identify areas for improvement and continually update our Inclusion and Diversity roadmap to ensure Ledcor continues to be a workplace where all employees feel welcome, safe to be themselves and can reach their full potential. Throughout the year, we also host educational events, panel discussions, and training for leaders and employees.

Evaluating and revising processes and practices

Through active memberships with industry and business leader groups, we are doing our part to drive change in equity, inclusion and diversity and ensure our programs stay current. We partner with employment agencies to expand the diversity in our hiring pool and make improvements to the employee experience that start at our hiring and onboarding processes.
