OECM continues to foster a diverse, inclusive, and collaborative work environment through its Diversity and Inclusion Program.
Designed as a six-month pilot program, today we are proud to share that this has now moved into a permanent initiative. OECM’s Human Resources team continues to implement activities that support the program’s three strategic pillars: Staff Engagement, Staff Education, and Removing Barriers.
In recent months, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee executed the following activities:
- Kicked off OECM’s NEW Diversity Calendar.
- Commemorated Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
- Announced OECM’s partnership with Indigenous Works - Leadership Circle for Indigenous Inclusion.
- Formed the Diversity Fun Group, allowing its staff to lead diversity-related activities.
Diversity Calendar between July and November 2021
As the Diversity and Inclusion Program advances, OECM will continue to measure the success of all initiatives under each strategic pillar. Stay tuned for more updates!
