Visible Minorities in the Senior Ranks of the Public Service of Canada: Challenges and Opportunities

Challenges and Opportunities

Description

This event is part of the Executive Learning Agenda and registration is limited to executives.

On September 17, the Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service (APEX) and the Canada School of Public Service are collaborating to advance the dialogue on inclusion and respectful workplaces in the Public Service of Canada.

This panel discussion will focus on visible minorities and the challenges they face in moving into the senior ranks of the federal public service. The panel will talk about their experiences and how to bring about progressive and positive changes within the federal public service. This includes what executives can do as leaders to adopt concrete actions and best practices to move the yardstick.

Daniel Quan-Watson, Deputy Minister of Crown–Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, is the Champion for Visible Minorities for the federal public service. He will moderate the discussion, addressing the overall benefits of recruiting, supporting, and promoting a diverse workforce.
