Pride At Work
Windsor Pride Community believes that diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is important to the social and economic prosperity of our community. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Ontario Human Rights Code state that it is illegal to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Unfortunately homophobic bullying and discrimination is still too common in workplaces in Windsor Essex. This discrimination and bullying is illegal. Windsor is falling behind. Fortunately many forward looking leaders in business and the not for profit sectors lead by example and are developing employee resource groups for their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) employees.
In conjunction with International Anti-homophobia Day on May 17th, WPC hosts annual educational events for the business and not for profit communities to promote greater understanding of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered employees in the workplace. There is much evidence that cities and workplaces which champion diversity in the workplace are more profitable, grow and have more satisfied clients.
Join us to build a stronger, better trained, educated and forward looking community in Windsor Essex County.
