Ready or not, here they come - Towards Workplace Diversity

CIM Edmonton 2008
Abstract Despite the obvious change in Canada’s demographics, most people at work aren’t grasping exactly how big a change is taking place and what is just over the horizon. Most of Canada’s net population growth is from immigration (soon to be all net growth) and most people coming to this country reflect the colour, culture, and languages of the entire world. When most workplaces are talking “diversity” and frustrated candidates and employees feel like calling the human rights commission, you know there’s a disconnect. Lawyer-turned workplace human rights expert, Stephen Hammond will challenge you to look beyond the numbers and consider the real steps that you and your workplace must take to keep up with Canada’s fundamental changes and avoid workplace human rights disasters. Using current events and common sense approaches, you will learn and be highly entertained at the same time.
