Respectful and Inclusive Workplace
Inclusion is complex: it can vary from gender inclusion, to disability inclusion, LGBTQ2 inclusion and racial equity and inclusion, among others and the link between these different factors, or intersectionality, can also contribute to this complexity. Inclusion evolves over time to reflect a changing population and technologies. The Respectful and Inclusive Workplace learning sector is dedicated to creating and disseminating learning content on inclusion, by supporting public servants with inclusion-centered learning opportunities such as gender-based analysis+, unconscious bias (as part of anti-discrimination learning), disability inclusion training, LGBTQ2 ambassador/ally training, mental health and occupational health and safety training, among others. Such learning opportunities allow the Government of Canada to reflect Canada’s diverse population and changing needs in Government programs and services. Collectively, this learning is meant to equip public servants with the knowledge and tools to design, develop and deliver more inclusive programs for Canadians.
