Shell has been active in Canada since 1911 and is now one of the country’s largest integrated oil and gas companies. Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Shell Canada employs more than 8,000 people across Canada. Our innovative approach ensures we are ready to help tackle the challenges of the new energy future.

Commitment to diversity

Valuing differences between our staff members, we work to give everyone the opportunity to develop their skills and talents in line with our values and business objectives.

We embed diversity and inclusion in our culture, for example through our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people. The Shell General Business Principles also state our aim to create an inclusive work environment with equal opportunities.

Globally, with over 87,000 employees in over 70 countries, Shell promotes diversity in many areas, including: Micro-Inequities, Generations, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Cultures, and disAbilities.

We are very proud to be the first energy company to become a Corporate Partner – recognizing that Pride at Work Canada’s mission and values are in line with our own.

Vision for the future

Finding innovative and responsible ways to secure the world’s future supply of energy can’t be done by few. It’s a monumental undertaking, and it’s going to require the input, knowledge and creativity of people around the planet.

This is why we don’t look at inclusion as an act of corporate goodwill. We don’t see it simply as “the right thing to do.” To Shell, having a diverse workforce is the only way we can accomplish our greatest company objectives. Yet, even more importantly, we see it as a matter of global necessity.

Valuing differences between our staff members, we work to give everyone the opportunity to develop their skills and talents in line with our values and business objectives.

At Shell we believe D&I is a foundation to our business success. We strongly believe that creating a culture where people feel included and valued no matter what their backgrounds will lead to a more attractive and positive work environment. Partnering with Pride at Work Canada is a wonderful opportunity to support our inclusive culture for LGBT individuals.
