Supporting an Authentic Workplace Culture by Celebrating our LGBTQ2+ Community

Version Français

Équité Association, is committed to establishing a vibrant, inclusive, and positive workplace for our employees, including those who are part of the LGBTQ2+ community. We encourage our team to bring their full selves to work because we know each person’s unique lived experiences and perspectives are part of the mosaic of our workplace identity, which contributes to our successes and enhances our culture.

Équité’s diversity and inclusion corporate values aim to not only celebrate our diverse teams, but to hold ourselves accountable as an organization, and as individuals. We recognize that supporting a diverse and inclusive workplace culture is an ongoing process and are committed to learning about, growing from and celebrating our differences. With employees based coast to coast, our people bring unique and varied personal and professional experiences, and we celebrate how an individual can contribute to the collective. Additionally, we are proud to have achieved gender-parity at the board and senior-leadership levels.

Our employees are passionate. Many volunteer and dedicate personal time to our Culture Committee and Mental Health Committee, working hand-in-hand to build a positive, caring, and high-performing culture and educating employees about mental health and wellness programs in place to equip them with the proper tools to be successful.

Équité recognizes that inclusivity is a year-round value that is about creating a space where employees are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work. Employees, who feel valued and supported for who they are, experience greater job satisfaction, well-being, and work-life balance. They are also more likely to develop strong interpersonal connections, build meaningful trustworthy relationships, and foster a positive work environment.

By embracing diversity and providing a supportive environment, we ensure our employees can thrive personally and professionally. Équité is committed to continuing its work towards nurturing an inclusive culture, guided by its core values of diversity and inclusion, where every employee can authentically contribute to our shared journey of growth and excellence.
