Employment Equity Partnership

Partners’ Roundtable “Moving with the Data”

Registration closing at 12.00 PM PST Friday, March 26th


Employment Equity Partnership (EEP) Round Table brings together prominent stakeholders and partners to deep dive into the exploration of equitable employment practices and the importance of diversity at the workplace within key sectors.

The Partners’ Roundtable, based on the theme of “Moving with the Data”, will bring together industry leaders and key stakeholders on strategic discussions on how, as Canadians, we can address systemic racism and inequities as we start to build back stronger on the path to economic recovery.

We are “Moving with the Data” as an imperative to drive systems and behavioural change to advance equity and inclusion for Indigenous, Black and racialized Canadians. We believe the coronavirus pandemic has presented a unique opportunity for us to re-imagine an inclusive future, for all. We believe there is an increased for transparency and accountability in how organizations collect, analyze and process race and gender based data, among other forms of disaggregated data.

All roundtable discussions will be held virtually.
