Corus CEO Signs BlackNorth Initiative Pledge
Updated: July 21, 2020
Corus President & CEO, Doug Murphy joins 200 other Canadian business leaders and their companies in signing the BlackNorth Initiative CEO pledge expressing their commitment to the removal of systemic barriers negatively affecting the lives of Black Canadians. The BlackNorth Initiative is another way to strengthen our internal action with outside frameworks, and complements our company-wide systemic review led by DiversiPro as well as other currently initiatives underway.
At the heart of the pledge are strong words:
“Working alongside, and in collaboration with, the BlackNorth Initiative, we will increase our efforts to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult conversations about anti-Black systemic racism and ensure that no barriers exist to prevent Black employees from advancing within the company.”
Our plan is to take the DiversiPro recommendations, along with the BlackNorth Initiatives guidelines, and create an action plan that is targeted for high-impact and sustainable change here at Corus.
