Remember, a policy alone will not affect change
For years, Canada has been known as one of the most welcoming and inclusive countries in the world – but it wasn’t always so. The discovery of mass graves of Indigenous children in the residential school system led to public outcry, with many demanding immediate change and reconciliation. These and other social movements had a palpable impact on our nation – with more and more employees gravitating towards companies with meaningful diversity programs. It may seem like there’s a lot of work ahead, but for organizations looking to create a more inclusive workplace right away, there are simple actions that can be implemented now.
