The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace. We desire a workplace that reflects the diversity of our province and provides us a competitive advantage in acquiring, engaging, and growing diverse and inclusive talent, building programs and services to meet the changing needs of citizens, and building and sustaining a culture that successfully positions the government for the future and becoming the best Public Service in Canada.
Diversity refers to all the ways each person is different and unique. These differences can include factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, or having a disability.
Inclusion is how a person feels they belong.
Inclusive workplaces is about creating an environment where employees of every demographic feel safe, supported, welcomed and able to succeed.
In 2016, the Government of Saskatchewan created an Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan to leverage an inclusive workplace as a means of attracting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce. The Inclusion Strategy and the Action Plan is aimed at short-term and long-term changes.
