Our commitment to equity, diversity,
Our organization is most impactful at the intersection of all our differences.
At The Conference Board of Canada, we are committed to providing an inclusive and equitable
workplace where we value diversity. We continuously strive to build a community where differences
are welcomed and respected.
- In our diverse workforce, everyone is unique. We recognize that our visible and invisible
identities, including gender, race, age, cultural origin, ability, sexual orientation, personalities,
more, shape who we are.
- By acknowledging, respecting, and valuing all the ways we differ, the Board strives to create
an inclusive work environment where everyone can be their authentic self and engage with
their colleagues and their work with confidence, trust, and optimism. Making space for
diversity and ensuring everyone is treated with dignity, compassion, and respect, helps us
excel as an organization and as individuals.
- At CBoC, equity means ensuring everyone is treated with fairness in all aspects of our
organization’s programs, processes, and policies. We are dedicated to fostering an equitable
work environment where our employees can be successful and reach their full potential.
These concepts are core to our values – collaboration, ownership, excellence, evidence, passion, and
integrity. We know from research that a diverse workforce combined with an equitable and inclusive
workplace leads to more effective problem-solving, greater creativity and innovation, and makes for
a more enjoyable and compelling workplace for everyone. Celebrating and respecting our
differences propels us forward as an organization, allowing us to achieve our mission – to solve the
wicked problems Canada’s leaders face.
