Deep Tech Canada

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Deep Tech Canada uses our dedication to community building to weave a network of industry, government, and academic members together. We provide essential value to members through networking events, training, workshops, international missions, and national conferences. We also provide opportunities to promote, market, and access Canadian deep tech businesses, products, or pre-commercial innovations. Our vision is to support our members by creating meaningful collisions of sectors and technologies that will impact health, climate action, communication, agri-tech, and transportation. We look forward to expanding our global reach through building long lasting international relationships and creating partnerships that lead to growth and prosperity. To fulfill our mission, we are committed to inclusion as a core value and in the practice of our business.

We believe that building and sustaining diversity goes hand in hand with a continuous and conscious commitment to inclusion reflected in our core values, work practices, and interactions with our community. We understand that diversity spans a wide range of identity, expression, and experiences including ability, age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, and religion.

We believe in diversity as a strategy to improve our effectiveness. Diversity will continue to be built into our management and governance hiring practices, programming design, policies and procedures, and employment practices. We will hold ourselves accountable to maintain a diverse and inclusive Board, ensure representation from designated groups and geographical representation in events, like national and international conferences and trade missions, ensure diversity and inclusion in choice of service providers, design membership of working committees to highlight diversity and inclusion, and to review our EDI objectives as part of the annual report to stakeholders.
