In today's ever changing Canadian work environment, an organization that wants to succeed at home and abroad must incorporate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in its mandate. Studies have shown that a diverse workforce outperforms and makes better choices. Many businesses have good intentions to create policies to accommodate DEI, however, the practical application often tends to be superficial. Today, DEI is one of the most powerful operational tools an organization can utilize and needs to be taken seriously.
