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.
November 2019
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!
