Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Becoming an equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization is a journey that requires frequent attention and adjustment.
Our team is committed to critically evaluating the way candidates are recruited, assessed, and selected both on behalf of our clients and internally.
We strive to create supportive experiences for all people, including those who identify as 2SLGBTQI+, Indigenous peoples, racialized peoples, people with disabilities, newcomers to Canada, and women.
We continue to adapt to combat barriers that may disadvantage underrepresented groups and ensure our team members are informed on EDI topics.
Our EDI Working Group
At KBRS, we have an active EDI working group to inform the development of internal policies and the refinement of processes to better embed EDI principles in the way we work.
With the support of our EDI Lead and senior leadership team, we are committed to combatting systemic discrimination to ensure our recruitment practices are equitable and inclusive.
Strong proponents of volunteerism and community leadership, we support the involvement of our team members in community organizations dedicated to addressing the needs of underrepresented groups and EDI.
Each year our team volunteers hundreds of hours to support diversity, equity, and inclusion related initiatives, including participation on boards and task forces, educational events, mentorship and sponsorship, and volunteering at community events.
Our Learning Journey in Decolonizing The Way We Work
Our team at KBRS is grateful to live and work on many different parts of the traditional territories of Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island. We have had the honour of working with Indigenous scholars, academic leaders and Elders involved in consultation work. We recognize the sovereignty of Indigenous Peoples and are grateful for the opportunity to address systemic inequalities that persist in recruitment.
Our head office is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We also have offices located on the territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, in addition to offices on the ancestral homelands of the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk.
We know how important it is to work with Indigenous communities to decolonize search processes and we are committed to listening and learning in each initiative we undertake.
