Taking steps to respect and celebrate diversity


Here are a few steps that can help you move toward a more inclusive workplace:

Post a calendar showing various ethnic and religious holidays – The University of Western Ontario offers an on-line multi-faith calendar that may be helpful – www.uwo.ca/equity/docs/mfcalendar.htm.

Support flexible work arrangements that respect not only cultural differences, but also age, gender and family situations.

Ensure that marketing and advertising materials reflect a range of age, sex and cultures.

Offer opportunities for people to share information about their country of origin and their culture. Company social events are a great opportunity, for instance, for an international potluck.
