The Canadian workforce has become more diverse in recent decades and is projected to be more so in the coming years. For example, women now account for almost half of the Canadian labour force. The aging of the Canadian population and the abolition of mandatory retirement means that a number of generations will be working side by side with each other. With globalization and the greater mobility of workers around the world, racial/ethnic minorities will soon account for one in three working Canadians in the not-too-distant future. A number of organizations have already realized the importance of all Canadians irrespective of gender, age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and other dimensions of diversity in order to remain competitive on the global stage. This course will explore the opportunities and challenges of working in and managing diverse and inclusive workplaces.
