Our proprietary tool kit – the Diversity Assessment Tool (DAT) which has been applied across sectors – Financial Services, Information Technology, Health Care, Cultural Industries, Government, Policing, Media and Communications and Small Medium Enterprises – as well as through the innovation ecosystem – research and funding agencies, incubators and accelerators and business support organizations – to benchmark and guide the development of strategies to advance diversity and inclusion.
Our database of best practices supports more inclusive governance, benchmarking, human resources, culture, outreach or to bring a gender and diversity lens to the entire value chain (procurement, research and development, operations, product and program delivery, marketing, services and support).
Our database of more than 4000 women and diverse leaders – on boards and in the C-suite of Canada’s largest corporations, non profits, agencies, boards and commissions, hospitals and universities – as well as partnerships with other organizations not only provides an answer to “we cannot find any” but also a treasure trove that informs our “See it. Be it” campaign to challenge stereotypes
Our standard and customized training and capacity building programs can support organizations large and small advance their goals
We have a team of well-trained diverse young people ready to roll up their sleeves and help, particularly those small organizations which need hands-on support leveraging Work Integrated Learning (WIL) programs.
If you or your organization would be interested in learning more about this initiative or would like to have a conversation with us about working with the Diversity Institute to improve or examine your organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion policies, please let us know.
