If you want to advance your career, you’ve got the support to do that. I feel really proud and lucky to work at Inter Pipeline.”
Brooke Kenyon, Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator, felt welcomed at Inter Pipeline from the beginning: “I started as a summer student in community engagement and I have to say I was terrified because it was my first corporate job and I didn’t really know what to expect.
