Our programs and strategic initiatives bring together community, researchers, activists, entrepreneurs, policymakers, corporate sector leaders on complex issues at the intersection of Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

Employment Equity Partnership

The Employment Equity Partnership (EEP) is a public-private sector partnership on data-driven solutions to systemic racism and inequitable employment in Canada. EEP engages corporate sector employers and larger non-profits to benchmark the diversity of their current workforce and co-develop pathways for engaging talents from under-represented groups, including Indigenous, Black and other racialized groups.

The EEP takes an intersectional approach to creating Workplace Equity Scorecards (WES) that highlight systemic inequalities and barriers to equitable employment and support services across civil society, tech, healthcare, tourism & hospitality and financial sectors. The equity scorecards focus on developing performance metrics as well as highlight gaps in access to equitable employment among under-represented groups in the workplace.

Youth-Led Community of Practice

The Youth-led Community of Practice (YCoP): Reimagining and Redesigning will be launched as a shared learning and advocacy platform for youth and allies to collectively address Racial Equity, by digging deeper into its intersecting roots in Climate Justice, Decolonization and Mental Health through a Design Justice lens.

The YCoP will be a shared online (and offline) space to build connection, community, and collaboration in service of movements for collective liberation. By modelling radical and innovative practices, we hope to empower youth within the YCoP to reimagine what true youth engagement looks like.

Our REDI Framework

Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (REDI) framework is our service offering to support multi-level and multi-sector organizations in their understanding and prospects for advancing racial inclusion. We believe race is the fulcrum and starting point for conversations and behavioural change towards equity and inclusion. We work from intersectionality, centring our work on racial equity at the intersection of gender, youth leadership, accessibility and other social determinants for inclusion. We provide racial and gender data analytics with targeted benchmarks for solutions design, implementation and progress tracking.  Our delivery process covers the range of REDI baseline assessment to strategic action planning and orientation for systems and structural change.
