Joint Union/Management Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion
The Joint Union/Management Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion was created in to bring together representatives from across the public service and the public sector bargaining agents to examine how to strengthen diversity and inclusion in the government. More specifically, the Task Force will put forward recommendations and an action plan to support diversity and inclusion over the longer term.
The Task Force is comprised of a steering committee that guides the work of a technical committee. Both committees include equal representation of Employer and Bargaining Agent representatives. The Task Force has been established for a one-year period with a two-phase reporting schedule, a mid-year progress update and a long-term action plan.
Name-Blind Recruitment Initiative
The Public Service Commission, supported by the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer at the Treasury Board Secretariat, is undertaking an initiative on the effectiveness of applying name-blind recruitment techniques in the public service. The initiative involves recruitment processes from six participating departments.
The Joint Union/Management Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion welcomes the work of the Public Service Commission in this area. As part of its mandate, the Task Force is examining people management strategies in the public service and is considering different ways to promote diversity and inclusion.
