Canadians believe workplaces still have work to do when it comes to diversity and inclusion
Our latest Workplace Insights Survey took a deep dive into the sentiments of working Canadians and discovered women and members of visible ethnic minorities report experiencing or witnessing more judgement, misconduct and inequality in the workplace.
Canadians believe their workplaces have room to improve when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion. Specifically, working Canadians who belong to a visible ethnic minority reported, at their current place of work, they have experienced or witnessed more judgement or misconduct based on ethnicity or skin colour, more negative impacts on their career and greater feelings of discomfort in the workplace.
However, there are some positives, as the survey also noted greater awareness of these issues among younger workers, with nearly half (47%) of employed Canadians aged 18 to 34 saying they would be more loyal to their organization if they took a stand publicly on diversity and inclusion.
