DEI Statement

Bousfields is on a journey to foster and nurture an authentic culture of diversity, equity and inclusion in our workplace, in the projects we are a part of and communities in which we work.

In our pursuit of building and advancing a more diverse, equitable and inclusive Bousfields, we endeavour to be honest and transparent about where we have been, where we are at, and where we hope to go.

We will learn from our failures and build on our successes. The key to our successes will be the consistency in which we apply a DEI lens to the everyday and strategic decisions made at Bousfields.

This is our commitment to do what is within our abilities to uphold Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:

  • Diversity
    We are based in one of the most diverse regions of the world and we are working to be a firm that reflects the diversity of the communities we work in. From our recruitment and retention practices to our methods of engagement, we are always evolving to bring new voices and opinions into our workplace and into the projects we work on.
  • Equity
    We strive to make planning, urban design and community engagement more accessible and equitable, whether it is creating more opportunities for individuals to get into and succeed in the planning and development industry through programs, mentorship, scholarships, etc., or by using tools and practices that allow more people to participate effectively and meaningfully in the planning and design processes.
  • Inclusion
    We welcome all and want everyone to feel like they belong and that they can be their authentic selves. Whether in our office, at a community meeting or elsewhere, an inclusive and collaborative approach brings about constructive solutions, creativity and positive change.

Over the course of 2023, Bousfielders were fortunate to travel and experience places near and far. 

Swipe to see a sample of some of the amazing photos shared as part of a recent event our DEI Committee hosted, where we discussed what new perspectives our travels brought us this year.

Bonus points if you can guess where some of these photos were taken!
