The project’s specific objectives are to:

  • Improve representation of Black Canadians within the banking sector;
  • Improve understanding among banking sector stakeholders of industry-specific barriers and the inclusion of effective human resources practices to address them; and
  • Develop new inclusion tools, such as the Inclusive Visioning Process road map, tailored to industry specific needs.

As this is a national event, a series of events have been arranged with multiple sessions to accommodate as much of the banking sector as possible.

Round Table

This session will offer the opportunity for dialogue around how DEI challenges are presently viewed, addressed and if/how they actually move the dial in our equity efforts. Utilizing specific questions, the facilitator will guide attendees in sharing – from small (breakout room) group work – their experiences, efforts and learning within their organizations. Common themes / issues / struggles will assist in prefacing upcoming sessions in terms of understanding the current state of D&I in the industry and help inform some content in creating a D&I vision for the future.
