Learning from each other’s cultures and experiences
Recently, we celebrated 150 years of Canada's diversity with our second annual Employee Diversity Network fair.
Our Employee Diversity Networks offer positive employee engagement through event-based learning, volunteering activities, networking and knowledge sharing across the organization. This year's activities kicked off with President Michael Hatfield welcoming the group.
"Diversity and inclusion is very important to ConocoPhillips Canada and in my own personal values, and today's event demonstrates the variety of interests and cultural diversity across the company," said Michael.
Representatives of the Asian Canadian, Hispanic, Indigenous, Women’s and Parent’s Networks were on hand to talk with attendees about the initiatives, activities, and social networking opportunities they support, and to let them know how they can get involved.
The fair concluded with a special guest performance by the Blackfoot Medicine Speaks pow-wow dancers. Thanks to ConocoPhillips Canada's Indigenous Network, employees were treated to the local Aboriginal dance group, and had the chance to learn the historical and cultural background behind each of their dances.
