Inclusion and diversity are core values of Algonquin College. We value both the dignity and uniqueness of the individual and equity & diversity in our community. Holding true to this core value, our Algonquin College People Plan reinforces our goal to “build a learning workplace that is respectful, diverse, inclusive and healthy.” We believe that a culture of inclusion supports fully engaged employees, serves our communities, and prepares students to achieve lifelong success.


We have committed to take action to ensure that Algonquin is an exceptional place to work for members of the LGBTQ+ community. This includes becoming a partner of Pride at Work, driving broader awareness, and increasing the resources available to create a culture of inclusion for our LGBTQ+ employees and colleagues.
