Count yourself in!
Creating an environment where diverse perspectives are valued begins with self-declaration. Count yourself in and self-declare by identifying to which employment equity group(s) you belong to. Some hiring organizations, based on their needs, may limit the selection of candidates to members of these designated groups.
