"It's always been important to me to work for an organization that feels passionately about diversity and inclusion and brings forth action to drive positive change. Earlier this year, in my role chairing N'Abling, Canada's Diversity and Inclusion Business Resource Group, I worked with an ambitious team to support our office renovations through an Accessibility Site Audit. The audit was completed in partnership with the Rick Hansen Foundation, a local non-profit providing strategic recommendations that were presented to our Architects and implemented into our plans. It was a proud moment for the team and I to see the inclusion we advocate for incorporated into our newly designed space." Amanda B., Country and Customer Development Business Partner
