PRIDE AT WORK CANADA
Pride at Work Canada was founded in May 2008 by a group of dedicated individuals with a vision – to improve the climate of inclusiveness for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-identified (LGBT) employees in the workplace.
Diversity fosters success. The most successful organizations reflect and embody the values of the people they serve. Pride at Work Canada encourages organizations to support authenticity at a corporate level and create workplaces where LGBT employees will be more able to be themselves and, ultimately, to be more productive.
Pride at Work Canada’s Partners employ over 750,000 Canadians — and include leading organizations from a broad spectrum of the Canadian economy. Each company recognizes LGBT individuals as key to a productive, engaged workforce. Their partnership brings them into a network of sharing good practice, and helps them establish best-in-class workplace initiatives.
