Workplace Diversity and Inclusion

IDEAS (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Anti-Racism Summit) 2024, is a one-day event designed to provide opportunities for participants to learn of the long-term benefits of immigration and workplace diversity. Targeting employers, it will feature keynote speakers and guest panelists who will share seminal research, best practices, and challenges around making both the province and the workplace more diverse and inclusive.
