The Halifax Regional Municipality’s Diversity & Inclusion Framework is designed to assist the entire organization in our continued efforts to build a diverse and inclusive workforce and provide programs and services to our residents by using a diversity and inclusion lens.
This Framework identifies key priorities to move these efforts forward, both in our organization and communities, and provides a focused lens on how we can address these priorities going forward.
The Framework comes to life through implementation and evaluation plans created by individual business units and divisions. Comprised of senior leaders from across the organization, a Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Working Group has been formed to champion issues related to employment equity, workplace behaviour and respect by embedding diversity and inclusion into municipal business units.
Their role is to advise the Halifax Regional Municipality on the impact of policies, programs and services on diverse employees and communities through the monitoring and implementation of the Diversity & Inclusion Framework.
