Why is supporting women-owned and women-led businesses important?

Differing perspectives contribute to well-rounded decision-making; which therefore supports the success of businesses. From a business standpoint, it’s about having the right person for the job, without focusing on gender, all the while embracing diversity.

Featherstone Mentorship Program

One of many ways we provide inclusion to Indigenous Communities and introduce young participants to our industry is through the Featherstone Mentoring Program. Our program was implemented in 2013 and provides on-the-job mentorship and training for individuals who want to work in the pipeline construction industry and possess the required tickets but cannot get that first job due to lack of relevant experience. Arnett & Burgess helps ease these barriers by providing hands-on work opportunities in order to gain greater local participation.
