In addition, we are one of the rising stars of the Palmarès des entreprises québécoises au féminin 2022, 2023 and 2024 from Premières en Affaires magazine.

 

 

🤝 A commitment to inclusion

 

At DELAN, we deeply value diversity and inclusion. With two women among our three partners, we are proud to be a majority female-owned company. This diversity creates a welcoming work environment that stimulates creativity and innovation.

 

Our recruitment process demonstrates our commitment to inclusion. We actively encourage our clients to recruit more women, promote pay equity, and eliminate gender pay gaps. We help them develop an inclusive corporate culture, attract and retain diverse talents, while placing people at the heart of their concerns.

 

 

🫶 Our support for women

 

As the founder of DELAN, Anne-Marie Deslauriers is actively committed to supporting women entrepreneurs. In particular, she offers mentoring to future female entrepreneurs and hosts volunteer conferences at institutions such as École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS Montreal) and PME MTL. Anne-Marie also participates in the activities of the Women Presidents Organization (WPO) and the Réseau des Femmes d’affaires du Québec (RFAQ), which provide a valuable space for discussion and support for women aspiring to succeed in the business world.

 

At DELAN, we are also proud to support the “60 Million Girls” organization through our donation program “1 DON, 1 HEURE À LA FOIS”. This organization’s mission is to promote girls’ education in developing countries. Our partnership funds initiatives like Mobile Learning Labs, offering educational tools even in regions without internet access. These laboratories contribute significantly to the economic and social development of girls by providing them with the means to continue their education.

🔎 Our vision for continuity and evolution

 

To guarantee our sustainability, we have developed a solid succession plan with a hybrid takeover approach, combining family transfer and traditional takeover. This plan includes family members and employees, like Stéphany Desmarais, partner since 2020, after joining DELAN in 2016. Thanks to her energy and her talent for persuasion, Stéphany was able to motivate her team and bring a new dynamic to the company. As a young businesswoman, she is active in various professional organizations, notably in EntreChefs PME and in the Réseau des Femmes d’affaires du Québec (RFAQ). Stéphany also contributes to maintaining the WEConnect International and WBE Canada certifications, reflecting her commitment to the promotion of business women in Quebec.

 

 

At DELAN, we are committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our work. Every action counts and we are committed to making a positive difference in our community and beyond! 🙏
