American Indian Science and Engineering Society Again Names Stantec a Top 50 STEM Workplace

ANCHORAGE, AK — The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) has again recognized Stantec as one of the Top 50 STEM Workplaces for Indigenous STEM Professionals. It is the fourth consecutive year AISES has named Stantec as an honoree.

Firms selected for the AISES Top 50 list are required to meet a list of criteria, including:

  • Diversity recruitment efforts
  • Recruiting for jobs in the STEM fields
  • Actively recruiting within Indigenous audiences
  • Sustained support of the AISES mission

Stantec continues to strengthen its connections to Indigenous communities and find new ways to make contributions. Examples include supporting local initiatives and collaborating with local and national Indigenous organizations such as Everfi to bring STEM programming to remote and Indigenous-based schools and through a school business partnership with the Alaska Native Cultural Charter School. Embracing diversity of all kinds enables Stantec to provide a work environment and organizational culture that plays a role in attracting and retaining people with the right skills.

“At Stantec, we are fully committed to building and maintaining sustainable relationships with Indigenous Peoples, communities, and businesses,” said Adam Leggett, Stantec’s Alaska Native Program Manager. “I am excited to see AISES continue to recognize our efforts to be a welcoming place for Indigenous employees. It’s critical that Stantec remain a place where all employees feel seen, heard, and free to be true to themselves.”

Building Stronger Connections with Communities in Alaska and Beyond
In Alaska, Stantec successfully works with Indigenous groups through formal business partnerships focused on Alaska Native employment efforts on major projects. The firm is a longtime supporter of the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP) and Alaska Resource Education (ARE). In Canada, Stantec doubled its Indigenous Business Partnership gross revenue to $29 million in 2022. Stantec is a minority partner in 11 Indigenous partnerships that help provide direct investments to support economic growth in various communities. The global firm is a certified member of ECO Canada, a not-for-profit industry-led human resources organization that is dedicated to building Aboriginal careers in the environmental field.

The 2023 scholarships were presented to 44 students from Australia, Canada, India, Jamaica, New Zealand, and the United States.
