2019 Community Feature: Manitoba Hydro

We’ve been a proud sponsor of the Pride Winnipeg Festival for the past six years and we’re back in 2019.

Our support of the festival and participation of our employees fits in with one of our foundation principles—respect for each other — and our commitment to equality and inclusion.

Our involvement also reflects the growing popularity of the festival and the increased participation of Manitobans.

We’ve consistently been named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers—recognition that we’ve created inclusive workplaces for employees from five diverse groups: Women; visible minorities; persons with disabilities; Indigenous peoples; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and two-spirit (LGBT2S) peoples.

We also strive to develop and retain a highly skilled and motivated workforce that reflects the demographics of Manitoba. From Indigenous pre-placement training programs to the Project Search Program that helps high school students with intellectual disabilities find meaningful employment, Manitoba Hydro is a leader in developing diversity programming.

We look forward to the 32nd Annual Pride Parade festival!
