The corporate case for diversity and inclusion in the workplace couldn't be more straightforward. It's good for business -- boosting innovation, productivity and revenue growth at home and in the global market.
Canada's Best Diversity Employers 2020 already understand the competitive economic advantages, but they also understand that diversity and inclusion is foremost about people. It starts at the top with an ongoing strategic plan that gives employees, regardless of their race, gender, disability, country of origin or sexual orientation, the opportunity and support needed to succeed. That's what puts lofty ideals into action.
These diversity champions have all taken proactive initiatives to create both a more diverse workforce and a more respectful, inclusive environment where everyone can feel they belong. That includes steps to promote women and diverse candidates into senior leadership roles because real change doesn't happen without meaningful representation at every level.
