Our commitment

We are committed to diversity and inclusion because of the simple belief that a diverse and a fully inclusive work environment fosters a plurality of thought and perspectives that solves challenging problems and creates value for our clients, for our communities, and for the world at large.

Hatch’s vision for diversity and inclusion builds on our core values, including the belief that we are entrepreneurs with a technical soul. Entrepreneurship speaks to a mindset, a way of thinking and acting like an owner, and a passion to pursue goals others might not have the courage to take on. Building from our core as engineers, scientists, and technologists, we use our skills and this mindset to tackle the world’s greatest challenges. A diverse workforce allows us to unlock the complete potential of our team who will improve our clients’ businesses, thereby shaping the future of the world we live in, contributing in a meaningful way to society’s advancement, and creating positive change.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion intends to enable that positive change. We are proud that our organization is home to 10,000 employees who—regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, disability, and way of thinking—are celebrated and their unique strengths harnessed to create outcomes that leave a positive legacy in the communities we serve and call home.

The purpose of all our diversity and inclusion initiatives is to support the continued nurturing of a collaborative workforce that leverages its diversity at every level of our organization and cultivates an inclusive work environment for all. In addition to our global programs, each of our six regions (Eastern Canada; Western Canada; USA; South America; Australia and Asia; Africa, Europe, and the Middle East) also educates and empowers our diverse workforce through relevant local programs.
