Around the world, workplaces, organizations and individuals have been pursuing new conversations about racial injustice and in particular anti-Black racism.
At Corus, we acknowledge that systemic racism exists within our society and workplaces. We are committed to taking the necessary actions to rid our organization of racism and systemic barriers as we strive to create a fully inclusive culture–one in which equity and diversity can thrive.
In June 2020, we engaged the services of DiversiPro, third-party diversity and inclusion professionals with expertise in anti-Black racism, to help us bring about systemic change at Corus.
Having DiversiPro’s expert assessment has helped us focus on the highest impact areas for change, to ensure that we could tackle systemic barriers in the most meaningful way.
After a four-month review, we received a series of recommendations on how to create a new path for increased equity, diversity and inclusion at Corus.
Within this review, we heard people describing their experiences and distress arising from their experiences, which we regret. We respect and appreciate the willingness of our employees to share their experiences to help create change for the future.
In November 2020 we shared the key findings of this important work, as well as the steps we will take, as a company, to address the results of this review. Sharing this information publicly reinforces our commitment to building a new path to an inclusive, sustainable culture here at Corus–in which equity, diversity, and inclusion are central to what we do within our company and in our communities.
We commit to provide quarterly updates on our progress. Please see below for this quarter’s update.
