People in modern office

Committed to building an inclusive workplace

We’re building an inclusive workplace where everyone feels comfortable bringing their true self to work and has confidence in knowing they have the same opportunities as everyone else. Inclusion is deeply embedded into everything we do. It’s one of our core values and a driving force toward paying pensions to teachers and shaping a better future for everyone.

DEI dedicated

We draw strength from diversity of background and thought because we believe it improves decision making and leads to better outcomes. 

We are committed to equity in our processes and programs to ensure fair outcomes for every individual.

We're committed to building an inclusive workplace where our talent feels respected, accepted and empowered to be themselves. 

As a member of the Pride ERG committee at Ontario Teachers’ and as an active member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, I am so proud to work at an organization that is supportive and accepting of each and every employee. Inclusion is a value well enshrined at Ontario Teachers’, promoting a sense of employee safety and belonging.
