Commitment to diversity
The Corporation of the City of London is proud to have been the first municipality to partner with Pride At Work Canada and is fully supportive of its mission, vision and values. London itself is a creative, engaged and inclusive community which respects and values all cultures, ethnicities, genders, languages, ages, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, opinions and life experiences. The Corporation of City of London is an active supporter of the annual London Pride Festival; with the Mayor and members of Council whole heartedly participating in the parade.
As an employer, the Corporation of the City of London has a strong commitment to workplace diversity and inclusion. We know that people who feel comfortable to be their whole selves at work are better employees and ultimately provide the best possible service that our community relies on. Our Workplace Diversity Statement and Plan, launched in 2009 has helped us to attract, engage, develop and celebrate exceptional people in public service who are representative of our community.
Vision for the futureThe Corporation of the City of London will continue to foster an inclusive and supportive workplace respecting the dignity and perspectives of all. We will do this with a Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Plan which builds upon our existing solid foundation. We look forward to leveraging the resources and expertise available through the Pride At Work Canada partnership. We recognize that our LGBT employees are an important part of our diverse workforce and want to ensure all can achieve their full potential with us.
