We believe that strong communities and a diverse workforce will contribute to the prosperity of Canada and the growth of Shell’s business in Canada. We strive to hire the best, diverse talent we can find based on principles of merit and equity.
In order to assist with our aspirations, promote diversity, and help Shell monitor our Employment Equity Program, we ask applicants to voluntarily complete the following questions.
The information you provide helps Shell identify and address systemic barriers that may exist in attracting people from the four employment equity groups (women, visible minorities, persons of Aboriginal descent and persons with disabilities), and therefore Shell may give additional consideration for employment to those groups. Special consideration is only given when the employment equity group is under-represented in the Shell Canadian business workforce; under-represented in a particular occupational level; and in compliance with the Employer Obligations of the Canadian Employment Equity Act.
How will Shell use this information?
The following definitions are taken from the Employment Equity Act of the Equity Groups.
