“AbNet is not only for Indigenous Peoples who work at Shell, but about Indigenous people, cultures and issues. I am grateful to Shell for supporting an Employee Network where one can learn about, participate in, and promote Canada’s Indigenous cultures! Having met and worked with AbNet members, Shell leaders, and the local Aboriginal community over many years, I am honored to volunteer for this value adding network.”

Pamela Avender

“The fact that AbNet exists shows that at Shell you can bring your whole self to work; you don’t have to choose between being a professional or your own culture, both are welcome. It also provides a great avenue to educate fellow co-workers about issues, trends and opportunities happening in the Canadian indigenous community.”
