IDEAS 2022 is an employer-focused event aiming to make Newfoundland and Labrador’s workplaces more welcoming for immigrants, racialized people and others from underrepresented groups. This summit provides a forum to showcase the positive contributions and impact of immigrants on communities while facilitating a larger conversation about the value of intercultural awareness, inclusion, and integration of diverse groups in the province. The theme for this year’s event, Inspiring Creativity in a Diverse Workplace, aims to explore how organizations can move beyond hiring a diverse workforce to creating a space where employees are inspired to reach their full potential. We feel it is very important to not only promote diversity and inclusion in our province’s workforce but also to provide attendees with real tools to be able to help immigrants feel included, respected and productive.
