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

  • Xerox Canada maintains an executive diversity council that meets regularly throughout the year to discuss various topics -- members also participate in the Corporate Champion Program, which pairs senior executives with a representative from one of Xerox's six employee caucus groups: African-American, Hispanic, Asian, Women, African-American Women, and the LGBT community -- through the Champion program, caucuses can educate council members on the group's unique perspective and current initiatives to advocate inclusion within the company
  • Along with the President of The Toronto Board of Trade, Xerox Canada's President co-chairs the Prince's Seeing is Believing Aboriginal Business Roundtable, which connects community organizations with local businesses and aims to create equitable opportunities for urban Aboriginal youth in Toronto -- the company also works with Native Child, a human services agency that focuses on Native families and children, to source and recruit Aboriginal high school students for internship opportunities
  • Xerox Canada applies a diversity lens to its recruitment and retention policies to ensure they align with the company's business priorities and integrate with people priorities across the whole organization -- Xerox also offers a bias-free selection progress guide for hiring managers, to ensure they have the necessary tools for respectful hiring practices, and maintains gender transition guidelines for human resources managers and consultants
