At Red River College, we are dedicated to providing a respectful atmosphere that is diverse, inclusive and equitable to our students, staff and external partners. Our goal is to provide a barrier-free environment for all individuals to succeed in their academic, employment and research goals.
What is employment equity?
We follow the Employment Equity Act (Canada) to define our commitment to creating a fair and equitable workplace.
Employment Equity is a program designed to identify and eliminate employment barriers that may exist in procedures and policies. An employment equity program attempts to achieve:
- A workforce that reflects the diversity of the available labour force
- Employment systems, policies and practices that support the equitable recruitment, retention and promotion of designated group members
- Employment systems that ensure inclusive access to employees in developing their abilities and making the best contribution possible to the workplace.
Employment Equity at RRC
Our current employment equity initiative, which kicked off in Fall 2019, aims to create Corporate and Departmental Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Action Plans for the College.
These action plans will be built around the following pillars:
Recruitment and Selection
The attraction, selection and promotion of candidates for jobs within an organization. RRC is committed to ensuring that employment decisions are based on skill and ability, and that qualified applicants and employees have equal opportunities for employment. In addition, we are committed to creating opportunities to grow our diverse workforce and evaluate our employment processes for the removal of biases and barriers.
Training and Development
The process of imparting knowledge, skills, and concepts while influencing changes to attitude, culture and status quo. Effective organizational training develops the human capital of a company while helping employees succeed in their roles. RRC is committed to providing training and development opportunities that is accessible, relevant and inclusive to all staff (and students where applicable) while promoting the understanding and literacy of diversity related topics.
Retention and Engagement
The ability of an organization to retain the engagement of its workforce and talent over time. We are committed to building an engaging, inclusive and rewarding environment where all employees are empowered and set up for success.
External Partnerships and Outreach
Building meaningful relationships with external organizations/partners to further support and compliment the successful delivery of our EDI goals.
