Introduction: Traditionally, diversity has been driven by the Employment Equity Act and the recognition of 4 groups – women, “visible minorities”, people with disabilities and Aboriginal, Metis, Inuit, and People of the First Nation. But some would argue those definitions are out of date and do not respond to the much broader diversity making up today’s workforces, and don’t help employers in creating truly inclusive workplaces for all their people.
Michael Bach, the founder and chair of the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion will provide a fun and informative overview of how organizations can move themselves from diversity to inclusion, using specific examples of what some employers have done to move from “counting people” to “making people count”.
Who Should Attend: HR Professionals and Practitioners, Diversity Professionals and Practitioners, Human Rights and Equity Professionals and Practitioners, Diversity Champions.
