Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity

March 7, 2019-Plug n Drive

Plug’n Drive is proud to have begun the process to be a signatory of the Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity (the Accord).

It is no mystery that in many occupations, women represent a much smaller component of the workforce than they should. This is especially the case in the automotive and energy sectors. The Accord is on a mission to change this.

Developed by Electricity Human Resources Canada, the Accord is a public commitment by employers, educators, unions and governments to promote the values of diversity, equality and inclusion throughout the workplace. Through recruitment, retention, career progression, training and development, Plug’n Drive is committed to ensuring women are informed of the opportunities available to them and, once employed, are fully supported and provided with equal opportunities to grow and develop to their full potential.
