BC Housing's Diversity & Inclusion Program is part of our People Strategy and reflects our vision of building an organization that attracts and leverages diversity in our staff, and strives for respect and inclusion throughout our workplace and in the communities we serve.
As a piece of our overarching People Strategy, the Diversity & Inclusion program has three main goals:
- Attracting & Onboarding - create a workforce broadly reflective of the larger community.
- Engaging & Developing - support employees in building the skills and capacity to work in an inclusive manner with one another and with the communities we serve.
- Building the Culture - build a welcoming workplace in which employees recognize that their unique characteristics, skills and experiences are respected, valued and celebrated.
We recognize that an inclusive and diverse work environment respects the unique characteristics, skills and experiences of all employees. Our Diversity & Inclusion programming includes respectful workplace workshops for everyone.
We offer Understanding LGBTQ Communities training and Working Respectfully with Indigenous Peoples sessions. Our Employee Diversity & Inclusion Committee hosts great events like National Indigenous Day, Canadian Multicultural Day, Pink Shirt Day, Lunar New Year, Black History Month and much more.
