Building psychological safety across the organization through inclusive language, education and allyship
What makes a workplace inclusive? For Ontario Teachers', it's when employees are comfortable bringing their true selves to work and have confidence in knowing they have the same opportunities as everyone else.
“At Ontario Teachers' there is a genuine and authentic desire to create the best work environment to drive performance and ensure employee wellbeing," said Nick Jansa, Senior Managing Director, EMEA. “We believe it's the right thing to do and have been focusing our efforts on building and fostering an inclusive workplace long before it became the corporate expectation."
However, this is not something that happens overnight, but rather a continuous process. Below, learn about some of the key steps taken by Ontario Teachers' on our journey towards building a more inclusive workplace.
