Through dialogue, education and thought leadership, Pride at Work Canada empowers employers to build workplaces that celebrate all employees regardless of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. We help create safer, more inclusive workspaces that realize the full potential of all employees and bring down barriers to employment. Our learning, networking and community events happen across the country, celebrating and connecting the most inclusive Canadian employers.
Pride at Work Canada was founded in 2008 by a group of dedicated volunteers with a vision to improve the climate of inclusiveness for LGBTQ2+ people in Canadian workplaces. The initial aim of the organization was to put the case for LGBTQ2+ inclusion on the mainstream business agenda by winning the support of employers that recognize the need to support LGBTQ2+ employees as part of their individual diversity and inclusion strategies. We now work with over 80 National and Regional Partners, employers that act as the organization’s members and support our mission, vision and values.
