Our vision is a Canada without prejudice and discrimination – a country that celebrates diversity, difference and inclusion. CCDI is proud to share with you its latest initiatives, events and resources dedicated to driving the diversity conversation here in Canada.
January 2020
There is a strong moral imperative and business case for individuals and organizations to become more culturally competent, enabling colleagues to bridge communities and navigate commonalities and differences at work. Cultural competence is also a key trait of inclusive leaders. Cultural competence enables workplaces to broaden their talent pool, and eliminate barriers to the hiring, retention and inclusion of culturally diverse employees and clients. Join us winter 2020!

Awards of Success 2020
There are many awards – in Canada, and around the world – that recognize employers for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Yet there are relatively few honours that acknowledge the people who work tirelessly to help make their workplaces, and Canadian society, more inclusive.

CCDI’s Awards of Success have been designed to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to diversity and inclusion here in Canada – whether internally to their organization or externally to the community at large.

Nominations will open soon.
