WINNIPEG - Red River College (RRC) is proud today to be named as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for 2020.
RRC joins 74 other Canadian organizations recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for leadership in creating inclusive workplaces for employees from five diverse groups: women; visible; persons with disabilities; Aboriginal peoples; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) peoples. Today’s award marks the fifth year RRC has been recognized with this distinction.
"This award is an honour because equity and inclusion are at the heart of our workplace culture," says Melanie Gudmundson, Chief Human Resource Officer.
"Red River College is home to thousands of staff and instructors from all backgrounds and virtually every corner of the globe. Each brings unique perspectives, experiences and connections to our classrooms and work spaces. That diversity is one of our greatest strengths – and it’s why we work so hard to provide a welcoming, safe and equitable work environment for all members of our Red River College family."
