Key Takeaways and Highlights

Highlights from Q4

DEI Education has completed its roll-out Corus-wide
The roll-out of the four foundational DEI Modules is now complete.

  • Module 1: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace.
  • Module 2: Challenging what We Think We Know About Racism.
  • Module 3: Anti-Racism in Action: Exploring Power, Privilege and Allyship in the Workplace.
  • Module 4: The Time is Now: Putting Inclusive Leadership to Work.

We are now developing the go-forward foundational learning program for new team members or anyone who missed last year’s roll out.

We are also integrating the concepts from the four modules into existing processes and training.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) continue to thrive and grow
In Q4, Corus saw the launch of two new ERGs:

  • neechie: focused on creating culturally aware, supportive and inclusive environment for Indigenous Peoples, while amplifying the need for Truth and Reconciliation.
  • WIN (Women’s Inclusion Network): focused on inclusion of all women

This brings our total number of ERGs to seven. We are so proud of our ERGs as they are a critical driver of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Recruitment project
The DEI and Talent Acquisition teams defined our strategy for FY23, which is broken into three areas of focus:

  • Sourcing: How to reach a more diverse set of candidates, aligned to our company’s demographic gaps.
  • Attraction: How to attract a more diverse set of candidates, and how to identify and address barriers in our job postings.
  • Selection: How to identify, and disrupt, bias in selection processes.

Cross-functional teams from across the business will be involved in this initiative, which will continue throughout FY23.

Content Diversity and Representation
In FY22, Corus launched a work stream focused on diversity and authentic representation in Content. The work started with the appointment of a dedicated DEI team member to lead this work, followed by a current state analysis, in-depth working sessions with nine Corus business areas to determine our objectives in front of and behind the camera, as well as identifying initiatives to support our objectives.

Q4 saw the completion of the first phase of the project, and in FY23 the focus will be on creating dashboards with associated targets to measure and define success.
