Diversity Drives Results
We want a leadership team at Linamar that reflects the communities we work in, and that maximizes our access to the whole talent pool. Talent drives results, and diversity maximizes talent!
Social Responsibility & Diversity
Linamar is truly a global corporation, and the composition of our workforce reflects the scope of our business operation and the communities we operate in.
We are respectful of our people, responsive to our customers, and thrive on innovation, ingenuity, and hard work. Our employees reflect the communities we work in, and that maximizes our access to the whole talent pool. It is our belief that talent drives results, and diversity maximizes talent.
In order to continue the positive development of our workforce and achieve company-wide success, we have set several initiatives in place:
- Programs such as Female Skilled-Trade Apprenticeships, Summer Technical Day Camps for Girls in grades 7-9, Skills Canada Partnership
- Skills Work! Summer Camps run in various locations across the province, offering hands-on activities related to the skilled trades where campers develop communication, problem-solving, and team-oriented skills
- Long-term corporate priority to increase female proportionality in leadership by attracting more female youth into manufacturing & technology at Linamar and in the industry in general
- $5 Million scholarship donation to Western University for ten female students each year, to fund half the cost of tuition for the three years of the dual degree program plus Linamar employment.
In 2021 we also established a Global Diversity Council in order to create more awareness and equity in other diversity matters, such as BIPOC, in the same way we have brought attention to gender diversity issues. Our policies on gender diversity earned the recognition of the initial Globe and Mail “Women Lead Here 2020” program.
