Why DEI?

Development of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan

The District of Saanich is committed to improving its programs and practices as they relate to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We are guided by the principle that embracing diversity enriches the lives of all people, and enhances the cultural fabric of our district as a whole.

To realize that vision, the District is working with QRG, a local diversity and inclusion consulting group comprised of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) practitioners and experts. QRG is experienced with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and is assisting with the development of a DEI Strategic Plan that will:  set direction for the creation of new community programs; improve hiring and retention of a diverse employee base; and recommend a Policy on Racism to Saanich Council.
