2022 Employer Council of Champions Summit and Awards

Inclusive Leadership in a Time of Change

May 26, 2022 ~ Virtual via Zoom

As we emerge from the pandemic, it is important to highlight the imperative of an inclusive recovery to include immigrant talent – a key driver of labour force growth. This is an opportune moment to challenge the status quo and organizational leaders to build workplaces that effectively attracts, hire and integrate a diverse workforce that includes immigrants.

Join over 100 senior executives and HR professionals from business, government, not-for-profit organizations and civic leaders in a dialogue about the role of leadership in fostering change in equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging practices in organizations.

Award–winning entrepreneur Mohamad Fakih, CEO and President, Paramount Fine Foods, will deliver the Summit Keynote address. He will speak about how inclusive leadership inspires and motivates successful teams for greater collaboration, innovation, and to achieve business outcomes during tough times.

The Summit program includes an employer panel and presentation of the 2022 HIO Employer Excellence Awards.
