DIVERSITY GROUPS JOIN FORCES
The Canadian Institute of Diversity
and Inclusion (CIDI) and the Canadian
Centre for Diversity (CCD) are pleased
to announce that they have entered into
joint operating relationships that will see
the CCD continue operations. The CCD
announced in September 2013 that they
were ceasing operations due to funding
“The CCD’s student educational pro-grams
couple nicely with CIDI’s focus
on diversity and inclusion in the work-place,”
said Michael Bach, founder of
CIDI and newly appointed CEO of the
CCD. “When I learned that the CCD was
ceasing operations, I knew we needed to
explore how to continue their great work.
I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to bring
this to fruition.”
Established in 1947, the CCD has been
widely recognized as a premier authority on
diversity education. Their vision to create
a Canadian society without prejudice and
discrimination, one that values diversity, dif-ference
and inclusion is also shared by CIDI.
CIDI has begun a consultation process
with former CCD volunteers, students,
donors and others that have been engaged
with the CCD to help shape the future
mandate and priorities of the organization
moving forward. ■
