Diversity and Inclusion

Our Diversity and Inclusion VisionDiversity Logo

The diversity of Baycrest’s people is a key strength. We will work together to create an environment that respects all persons; where barriers that limit an individual’s ability to realize their maximum potential do not exist.

Our Commitment

We will acknowledge and honour the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We believe that it is the differences in people that make us stronger, and because of our differences, we have the potential to enrich our quality of work-life, foster innovation and obtain better outcomes for our clients.

We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, identities, heritages and experiences. We will ensure that the workplace, including all policies, procedures and practices, is free of deliberate or unintentional barriers so that no one is disadvantaged. We will work together to create an environment that respects all persons, where barriers that limit an individual’s ability to realize their maximum potential do not exist.

Guided by our Baycrest values of compassion, advocacy, respect and excellence, we will advocate for our belief in the inherent value of all individuals, and in so doing, will treat all people with respect and dignity. We will strive to create and foster a supportive, safe and understanding environment in which all individuals can realize their maximum potential, regardless of their differences.
