Our DEI Compass: Leading Strategies and References

As we navigate the path toward greater diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our organization and in the content we produce, we look to esteemed models and frameworks as our guiding lights.

Among these pivotal references are:

  1. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy outlined by the official website of the Government of Canada,

  3. The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario’s (AGCO) profound commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DIA).

These documents serve as our compass in formulating policies and practices and inspire our continuous effort to foster an inclusive environment.

They underscore the significance of building a workspace and a platform where every individual, regardless of their background, culture, gender identity, or ability, feels valued and included.

By aligning with these strategies and commitments, we aim to ensure that our actions and content reflect the principles of DEI at every level of our operation.

This alignment reaffirms our dedication to not just meeting but exceeding the standards set forth by leaders in diversity and inclusion, marking our steadfast commitment to being a part of the broader change towards inclusivity and accessibility in the digital age.
