Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion in B.C.
 

HR Tech Group is thrilled to be driving a multi-year Diversity and Inclusion Tech Project. The purpose of this project is to increase the attraction, retention and advancement of women, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, people of colour, newcomers to Canada, and individuals who identify as LGBTQ/2S in addition to all under-represented groups in skilled occupations in B.C.’s technology sector.

Through the course of this project we are implementing several diversity, inclusion and indigenization strategies to recruit, retain and support career development in these professions.
