Nominees & Winners:
2016 BC Workplace Inclusion Awards
On June 2, UnTapped had the great honour of bringing together diversity champions in our community who are making a difference and revealing the winners of the 2016 BC Workplace Inclusion Awards. This year, we received over 50 nominations from across the province – from Vancouver to Kamloops, from Merritt to Quadra Island. Nominees ranged from small businesses tapping into the talents of recent immigrants, to large organizations experimenting with new approaches to building inclusive workplaces, as well as individuals and leaders who work tirelessly to make their workplace more inclusive, one day at a time.
To all of the diversity champions who were nominated for the 2016 BC Workplace Inclusion Awards and all those diversity champions that we have yet to meet, we say thank-you and congratulations. Thank you for showing us, by example, how to bring diversity and inclusion to life in the workplace. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do next!
Tapping into new talent pools is a top priority for BC businesses, with our province poised to be among Canada’s leaders in economic growth in the coming decade. Baby boomers are retiring, fewer young people are entering the workforce, and yet our demand for more skilled workers across all industry sectors and professions continues to grow.
UnTapped 2016 brings together more than 400 BC employers in Vancouver between February 2016 and June 2016 for topical discussions of common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions, led by forerunners in their fields.
The 2016 UnTapped Series has received a tremendous amount of support from sponsors, speakers and partners in communities across BC.
Join 400+ local business leaders to discuss common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions that work.
