All of Us: What We Mean When We Talk About Inclusion

All of Us: What We Mean When We Talk About Inclusion

In 2017 the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and the Institute for Canada Citizenship (ICC) surveyed 64 major Canadian corporations about diversity and inclusion: how they define it, how they go about promoting it, and how they measure it. Respondents to the RBC-ICC survey were asked to take stock of their diversity and inclusion efforts in two ways. Gender was by far the most commonly identified area where diversity and inclusion has improved in the workplace, with 81 percent of respondents selecting it as one of their top three choices for diversity and 76 percent for inclusion.
