The Leadership Accord on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a public commitment by Canadian employers, educators, unions and governments to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within their organizations. Developed and launched by EHRC in 2017, the Accord proposes united action by employers, educators, unions and governments to:
- expand the breadth and depth of the skilled workforce;
- ensure that women are informed of the opportunities available in the sector of their choice;
- and, once employed, are fully supported and provided with equal opportunities to grow and develop to their full potential.
It provides a real opportunity for all stakeholders to actively engage in building a workforce that is truly representative of Canada’s people.
