Inclusion at Work: Building Responsive Workplaces for Existing and New Challenges
Moving from inclusion policies to practice is more relevant today than ever, and leads to the question, what are organizations doing to address the specific and distinct challenges to inclusion faced by vulnerable groups?
Automation, COVID-19, the global Black Lives Matter movement have shaped 2020 and challenged all organizations to act. COVID-19 has exacerbated the labour market vulnerabilities faced by vulnerable groups: newcomers, immigrants, and individuals from BIPOC communities. Black Lives Matter has shone a light on the historical systemic racism that exists within institutions that continues to disenfranchise black people.
As such, this conference will focus on what opportunities exist for organizations and institutions to drive meaningful change? Themes discussed will include:
– Anti-Black Racism in the Workplace
– COVID-19 and it’s impact on precarious work for immigrants and non-status persons
– Understanding intersectionalities in developing effective inclusive practices- How companies are addressing automation and the possible displacement of the older worker
– The lack of access to employment for marginalized youth
– Inclusivity as crucial to the success of a digital workplace
Speakers to be announced shortly! Last year’s program was approved for 5.95 CPD hours through the HRPA.
