Vancity wins Nancy McKinstry Corporate Diversity award
Vancity was today announced as the winner of the Simon Fraser University Nancy McKinstry award for leadership in diversity. The SFU Beedie School of Business Corporate Diversity award recognizes an organization that exemplifies the values of diversity in the workplace.
Vancity, Canada’s largest community credit union, was recognized for its commitment to diversity, in particular their extensive community efforts, and their well-rounded approach to addressing the needs of the different identity groups. The award was presented to Vancity’s Ellen Pekeles, Senior Vice President of Operations, at a sold-out breakfast at the SFU’s Segal Graduate School campus in downtown Vancouver.
“Vancity’s focus on diversity and mandate of inclusion is exemplary, and has ultimately benefited not only the organization, but also society as a whole,” said Daniel Shapiro, Dean of the Beedie School of Business. “The selection committee faced a hard task in choosing a winner from so many outstanding candidates, but Vancity’s ongoing community activities and employee engagement initiatives demonstrate their leadership in diversity, and make them worthy winners of the Corporate Diversity Award.”British Columbia, canada, diversity, workforce
