Friday, March 2, 2018
Regina, SK – Access Communications Co-operative has been recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2018. This award recognizes employers who lead the way in creating an inclusive environment where individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds are valued.
"We are honoured to be recognized as one of Canada's best diversity employers,” said Jim Deane, President and Chief Executive Officer, Access Communications Co-operative. "This recognition is a strong testament to the hard work we have done over the years to promote and encourage diversity in the workplace.”
The award acknowledges the nation’s leaders in workplace diversity and inclusiveness initiatives among several employee groups that have traditionally been under-represented in the workforce. The Canada’s Best Diversity Employers competition is an editorial project organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
“The conversation has evolved immensely since the inception of the Canada’s Best Diversity Employers competition over ten years ago,” says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, which manages the competition. “The focus for many organizations today is to cultivate diversity of thought and create an environment in which individuals have an equal opportunity to contribute, advance, and voice their opinions and perspectives.” “Several employers on this year’s list are also focused on shifting perceptions of disabilities,” adds Leung.
