INCLUSION & DIVERSITY

Making Your Organization LGBTQ + 

Lunch'n Learn Webinar

Monday, June 12, 2017 (12:pm - 1:30pm EST)

 

Today Canada’s increasingly diverse population continues to develop at an unprecedented rate of change; politically, economically and socially.

Top organizations and businesses want to; attract, retain and promote talented individuals. And high-performing employees, of all backgrounds want to work with progressive, innovative, and reputable places of employment that enables them to achieve their fullest potential. 

Creating an “inclusive” culture means working towards an ideal level of open-mindedness and one that fosters non-judgmental behaviours. An organization that continuously strives to demonstrate “equal opportunity” practices, promotes healthy conflict and values new perspectives will be well positioned to embrace diversity now and into the future!
