Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Our commitment to our clients, our team, and potential candidates.
Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
CCS is committed to the ongoing development of a safer, respectful and equitable space for employees, clients and stakeholders of all races, gender identities, gender expressions and disabilities. We believe in the value that diversity brings to the workplace and to our ability to meet our clients’ respective needs.
We are committed to an inclusive approach where the qualities that make us different are always welcomed, valued and celebrated, and we will engage in continuous learning and education to better understand the experiences of our community and how we can support it.
To Our Clients
We aim to provide services that are accessible and inclusive of our clients’ respective needs. We offer training to support members of our team in understanding the different socio-economic intersections from which our clients come, and strive to eliminate barriers to equity.
To Our Team
We appreciate the different perspectives and backgrounds that are represented in our team, and offer opportunities (through surveys, focus groups, and interviews) for employees to share their observations and suggestions on ways to reflect the needs of our team, without fear of reprisal.
We seek opportunities to understand and celebrate culture and traditions that are meaningful to members of our team, and create a safer space for employees to be comfortable sharing their identity when in the workplace.
All members of our team are supported in their growth and development through employee development programs, mentorship, career planning support, and opportunities to apply for other roles within the organization.
