Mark your calendars. The Diversity Institute is pleased to host the Diversity Inclusion Now conference, a conference that will explore how to drive systemic change, enable equitable and fully inclusive environments for women and diverse groups in the workplace.

Canada is known for its diversity and shared commitment to advancing equal opportunities for all, including women, racialized minorities, Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Despite considerable efforts to advance diversity in workplaces across all sectors of Canada’s economy, a gap between intention and action persists. The Diversity Inclusion Now conference will convene thought leaders to present best practices on how Canada can create the equitable and inclusive workplace we want, now.

Take the first step towards creating a truly inclusive workplace by reserving your spot at the Diversity Inclusion Now conference today.
