EIN EDA Diversity 400On June 23, the EDA’s Teresa Sarkesian, President and CEO, signed the Electricity Human Resources Canada Leadership Accord on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – a public commitment to promote diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the workplace. Signatories are committed to improving opportunities for under-represented groups through changes in governance and organizational policies, training and development, and recruitment and retention. Over the next two years, the EDA is committed to the Accord and will identify, implement and track progress of organizational initiatives supporting a number of commitments as outlined in the Accord.

We look forward to doing our part in making meaningful change within our organization, and to promoting the accord throughout the electricity distribution sector. The EDA encourages others to join the Accord to help demonstrate their own commitment to working towards supporting an inclusive workplace for all.
