We believe equity, diversity, and inclusion is a practice of ensuring persons of all characteristics can participate and achieve at CWC. Our main objective is to define and support a caring and inclusive culture in the workplace to foster creativity and openness, invite different backgrounds, strengths and perspectives, embrace other’s ideas and contributions, and as a result, make CWC more relevant and valuable to CWC members and the broader stakeholder group it interacts with.
We act by maintaining an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee that is responsible for implementing this policy and developing a strategic framework for putting this Action Plan into practice. The EDI Committee will develop specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely objectives that will ensure that progress is measurable so CWC can assess whether the Action Plan implementation is working. The EDI Committee will promote its work and continue to monitor, evaluate, and plan EDI initiatives and will work with management to update our policy as often as required.
