Problem Addressed

Systemic racism can be perpetuated through organizational culture, outdated HR policies and practices, and a lack of resources. Employers must take action to address the barriers that limit Indigenous, Black, and racialized talent from entering the workforce, career advancement and professional development.

Solutions Implemented
  • We partnered with the Government of Ontario to convene 100+ Ontario employers in conversation on building inclusive workplaces.

  • We curated an Employer Resource Hub and series of videos to support the hiring and advancement of Indigenous, Black, and racialized talent.

  • We partnered with BCG to compile existing data from the municipal, provincial, and national level to show how anti-Black racism appears in four important lifecycle areas: education, employment, health care, and policing.

Economic Inclusion Roundtable

On January 26, 2021, the Government of Ontario’s Anti-Racism Directorate and CivicAction hosted a virtual roundtable on economic inclusion in the workplace. Bringing together over 100 established and rising leaders from across sectors, communities, and experiences, attendees worked to identify concrete actions employers can take to build workplaces that work for everyone.
