Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2022 were just announced & here’s the full list
March 11, 2022
The list of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers was just released, and includes workplaces that have created initiatives to tacking challenging areas with “transparency and accountability.”
“There is a clear shift in conversation and a desire to address challenging issues, like anti-racism and reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous peoples, head on,” said Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.
“Organizations are having a transparent, honest dialogue with employees about their experience, in the workplace and in their personal lives – and are using that feedback to drive action and response.”
Leung added that transparency is a key theme amongst this year’s winners.
Now in its 15th annual edition, Canada’s Best Diversity Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes employers across Canada that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs.
According to the competition, it recognizes successful diversity initiatives in a variety of areas, including programs for employees from five groups: (a) Women; (b) Members of visible minorities; (c) Persons with disabilities; (d) Indigenous peoples; and (e) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender/Transsexual (LGBT) peoples.
