Inclusion & diversity
We know that a diverse company, where everyone feels able to bring their whole selves to work, is a stronger company. At Cenovus, we embrace diversity of thought, experience and background to make better business decisions and believe that through inclusion and diversity we have the ability to solve challenges, seize opportunities and unlock innovative solutions. That’s why we’ve established ambitious inclusion & diversity targets for our business.

Our people stories
Inclusion & diversity networks
We have built a charter and governance framework for staff who would like to start an employee resource network and have five main networks that help us live our values. These networks are voluntary, employee-led and executive-sponsored groups that increase awareness and influence practices and programs to enhance the experience of all staff – whether they identify with the specific demographic or are allies.
enABLE@Cenovus focuses on promoting education, awareness and understanding for staff who have, or who are supporting individuals with physical or mental disabilities.
Fusion@Cenovus aims to bridge cultural gaps by leveraging the unique perspectives and skills of all staff and promoting cultural awareness and understanding to break down barriers.
Indigenous Community Sharing Circle (ICSC@Cenovus) welcomes both Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff and strives to create a supportive environment where staff can gather, engage and be empowered to achieve personal, career and community goals.
PRIDE@CVE provides education on LGBTQ+ challenges and opportunities in the workplace while promoting a safe and positive environment for all staff.
Stronger Together with Women@CVE encourages all genders to forge strategic connections and develop themselves.
MentalHealthMatters@Cenovus aims to foster positive mental health for all staff. Through collaboration, education and communication, the network is helping us build a more open and supportive mental health culture, and take better care of ourselves and each other.
