Diversity & Inclusion community in the BC Public Service
Last updated: December 9, 2021
The BC Public Service is committed to reflecting the communities we serve. The organization supports government’s mandate to ensure we’re inclusive of Indigenous peoples, immigrants, racialized groups, persons with disabilities and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
For more information, please visit our homepage – the Diversity & Inclusion Resource Centre – which includes information about the Diversity & Inclusion Strategy, Indigenous initiatives, Accessibility, Learning and resources and Governance.
Below are some ways B.C. government employees can be part of the conversation on diversity and inclusion.
Employee Resource Groups and Communities of Practice
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and Communities of Practice (CoP) are operated by employees of the BC Public Service.
There are several groups related to diversity and inclusion that exist, or are under development:
- 2SLGBTQIA+ Employee Resource Group (IDIR restricted)
- Accessibility Community of Practice (IDIR restricted)
- Employee Accessibility Advisory Council (IDIR restricted)
- Black, Indigenous and People of Colour Employee Resource Group (IDIR restricted)
- Cross-Government Gender Based Analysis+ Information Sharing Group (IDIR restricted)
- Indigenous Employees Network (IDIR restricted)
Many ministries within the BC Public Service are developing their own diversity and inclusion networks.
