Dentons Canada LLP
Dentons Canada staff celebrate International Day of Pink

Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Dentons Canada LLP was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016):

  • Dentons Canada's Dialogue LGBTA Resource Group promotes the professional growth of employees as well as fosters external business development and networking opportunities -- the firm also ensures that LGBT-focused resources are available to employees, such as information on LGBTQ adoption in Ontario, LGBT parenting, gender expression information for parents, and transitioning for gender independent children and adolescents
  • Dentons Canada recently drafted national Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Policy and Procedures to provide specific reference to how the LGBT community can expect to experience the workplace and to ensure that processes are in place to create a safe and inclusive environment
  • In partnership with Polygon Homes, Dentons Canada manages the Aboriginal Business Student Initiative, a two and a half month paid internship for undergraduate students -- in addition to employment, the program features mentoring opportunities with a Dentons employee
Dentons Canada employees across Canada took part in the International Day of Pink to raise awareness about and against bullying
