The Crown corporation has partnered with Black Talent Initiative (BTI) to support black Canadians’ career advancement.

BTI, a volunteer-driven organisation, facilitates connections between companies and black talent via its community of business professionals, resources and networks.

Through their partnership, OLG will post job opportunities on BTI’s platform, and will also work with BTI to provide chances for mentoring and networking.

In addition, both parties will collaborate on new learning opportunities “that benefit both OLG employees and BTI talent.”

Tyjondah Kerr, OLG’s Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, commented: “We’re thrilled to be joining BTI in its mission to provide black talent seeking career advancement with the professional development, mentorship and community that creates career opportunities and inspires equitable, anti-racist workplaces of today and tomorrow.

“At OLG, we celebrate our differences and know that our unique perspectives, backgrounds and orientations are what make OLG a great place to work.

“Through our partnership with BTI, we will further our commitment to create an environment where current and future black OLGers can excel.”

This partnership supports OLG’s mission and truths, chief among which is that it cares for Ontario. The lottery operator is also currently undertaking a modernisation effort.

“In our province's history, few organisations can match the contribution that OLG has made to our communities,” said Mark Harrison, BTI’s Founder.

“Their focus on improving economic benefits for people is a perfect alignment with the outcomes the Black Talent Initiative is pursuing in earnest. I am honoured they are joining our movement.”
