The initiatives outlined in our Diversity Plan provide employees and people leaders throughout the organization with the tools and supports to build a diverse and inclusive culture and workplace. For us, diversity and inclusion is about recognizing, respecting and valuing differences. Inclusion and cultural dexterity enhance our ability to fully leverage collaboration with colleagues, and to interact with our customers at a meaningful level. 

We also know that, when it comes to talent, diverse backgrounds and perspectives means not only enhanced innovation and higher performance, but also a workplace that’s just more interesting. That’s why we encourage applications from everyone – it doesn’t matter to us how you identify. If you think you have the qualifications for one of our opportunities, let us know by applying, and we’ll be privileged to consider your candidacy.

As part of our commitment to inclusion, we encourage women to pursue careers in all areas of our organization. Learn more about some of the careers that women are pursuing at Hydro Ottawa:
