The Health Care Human Resource Sector is committed to providing our stakeholders and organizations with the most current and relevant workforce development tools. Part of this includes Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility. It cannot be understated the importance of inclusivity in everything we do. There isn’t anyone anywhere who doesn’t want to be feel safe in expressing who they are – ultimately we seek the same thing and that is a sense of belonging. When people feel included, they are better able to contribute to their work, their homes and their communities. When we embrace diversity and inclusion, we have the opportunity to gain a new perspective on the world.

What the Council offers:
