Take part in the new 50-30 Challenge!

Did you know that the Government of Canada’s new 50-30 Challenge encourages Canadian organizations to increase the representation and inclusion of diverse groups within their workplace, while highlighting the benefits of giving all Canadians a seat at the table? We signed up last week!

Signing on to the challenge means that we have committed to achieving 50% gender parity on our board and senior management team; as well as at least 30% representation of other under-represented groups, including Indigenous people, racialized persons, people living with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ2 community.

We encourage you to reflect on diversity in your institution and take part in this challenge to reimagine a better and more inclusive future for all!

The new challenge, launched last week by Minister of Innovation, Science, and Industry Navdeep Bains, will create a community among its participants to share fresh insights, generate new ideas, and find creative solutions to address to address the unique needs of organizations across Canada.
