Rethinking Equity

 

What is equity and where do you begin? Are you conscious about the decisions you make about who is at the table? Do you understand the cost of inequity in society, and the role you play as a public servant or person with authority?

About the EDI Discussion Series:  Creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable public sector—where all employees feel represented, respected, and supported—is necessary to support the needs of Canada’s changing demographics. This EDI Discussion Series explores how governments can actively work to support the BIPOC community and break down system barriers.
