ICA’s Tools for Equity training program addresses racial disparities and employment barriers faced by immigrants, refugees, and communities of colour in the Capital Regional District. Through training and organizational coaching, the program will help organizations and businesses develop:
- long-term equity frameworks
- promising equity policies, and
- institutional practices that strengthen management and employee competencies at all levels.
Inequities will not disappear on their own. Tools must be used to create the change we want.
If your organization or business wants to encourage cultures of inclusion, close racial gaps and maximize anti-racist impacts in your place of work, please get in touch with us. No matter where you are on this journey, we will gladly work in collaboration with you to design strategies that not only advance justice and equal opportunity for all, but keep you relevant, competitive, and employers of choice.
