Forum Overview

Walking toward our biases. Championing an inclusive and prosperous Canada.

As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, it is as important to build for an inclusive and prosperous future as it is to celebrate the past.

Our places of work are a microcosm of society. Now more than ever, it is important for corporate champions to step forward and lead the inclusion movement in our organizations.

Bias creeps into our systems in subtle ways. We don’t understand how it influences behaviours and we don’t see the unintended consequences until we look at our leadership pipelines and recognize that important communities, perspectives and insights aren’t represented. That’s costly. How many opportunities are lost because we are missing diverse perspective? There is power in a well-managed organization that harnesses the collective insights of all the intersections of diversity.

Organizations that can navigate the journey from diversity to inclusion have the elixir to power a truly high performance organization.

This premier forum is unparalleled in Canada, where executive champions and diversity professionals can learn from diverse perspectives, share great practices and network with D&I thought leaders from across the continent.

Beyond the business case, this conference is designed for corporate inclusion champions, executive sponsors, leaders of employee resource groups and talent management professionals who understand the inclusion imperative but want to expand their knowledge of the dimensions and intersections of diversity and unconscious bias so they can help lead the journey in their organization.

Our Program Architect, global sage and Canadian treasure, Laraine Kaminsky, together with the Conference Board’s Director of Inclusive Talent Management Strategies, Ruth Wright, have once again brought together thought leaders and champions from across country and the continent to ensure every dimension of diversity is represented and discussed.
