Workshop - Introduction to the 'Immigrant Friendly Workplace'

This 2-hour workshop explores the question “What makes a workplace supportive to immigrants?”

This workshop will cover 6 key topics:

  1. Organizational leadership (by senior managers and directors)
  2. Strategy and planning
  3. Resource allocation and incentives (financial and non-financial)
  4. Recruitment and retention
  5. Accountability, transparency and participation
  6. Typical behaviours and beliefs

Research has shown the more broadly an organization engages with inclusion, the more successful the outcomes.

When you are ready to assess the immigrant-friendliness of your own organization, our staff can walk you through a Workplace Culture Assessment on the 6 above areas (takes approximately 1 hour to complete) and then recommend further supports.

Dates for sessions:

·        October 20      2-4 pm

·        November 229-11 am

·        December 132-4 pm

Workshops are available via live-stream in Nova Scotia.
