Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion in food and beverage processing
Hiring opportunities for employers
There is opportunity for industry employers to better connect with demographics that have been historically underrepresented including people with disabilities and women. There is also an opportunity to build on current workforce successes with Canada welcoming more than 1.2 million newcomers between 2021 and 2023.
This industry is committed to being a place of diversity and inclusion, but there is work to do. In 2023, CareersNOW! will expand partnerships with the Ontario Native Education Counselling Association, Discover Ability Network, and local employment leaders to facilitate recruitment and retention strategies that engage individuals from underrepresented groups, and educate leaders to champion change.
