Agents of Change

Agents of Change is a one-day event focused on equipping attendees with the tools they need to address the challenges under-represented groups face in the workplace. Women, Indigenous people, racialized people, persons with disabilities, LGBQ+, gender diverse people and newcomers to Canada are under-represented in electricity and often face systemic barriers. We have the power to change this disparity and transform our sector into a paragon of equity.

Designed to encourage interaction and collaboration, Agents of Change brings together a unified commitment to creating safe, equitable and inclusive workplaces for everyone. This national gathering provides a virtual forum for employees and leaders at all levels to share their stories and the innovative strategies that are inspiring change, with measurable impact.

Attendees include:

  • Executives
  • Human resources management
  • Company champions of diversity and inclusion
  • Those working in functional areas that typically see lower representation of diverse backgrounds and experiences i.e. trades, engineering, technology.
  • Young employees eager to make a difference
  • Anyone with an interest in improving the electricity sector’s equity!
