Our DEIB Commitments.

Engaged is committed to promoting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB), ensuring our policies, practices, and systems are free of barriers, emphasize the value of diversity, and promote full participation to ensure dignity, respect, and equal access for all employees. Through our processes and practices, we consistently work to eliminate barriers to employment for people who are underrepresented in Canada’s workforce.

Guided by our employee-led DEIB committee, we focus on a new theme every quarter to encourage resource-sharing, dialogue, and integration of DEIB-related topics into everything we do.
