BCLC Interim Chief People Officer, Sandy Austin, said: “As a social-purpose company, we work to generate win-wins for the greater good, and fostering a more inclusive culture is an important part of how we do that for our people. We are proud of what we have accomplished but acknowledge there is still progress to be made on our journey towards diversity, inclusion and belonging for all.”

BCLC was the only Canadian organisation to be recognised in the category for companies with 500-2,499 staff, and in May 2022, The Canadian HR Reporter named BCLC a “Leading Diversity & Inclusion Employer”.

In a statement, the company outlined its goal of creating “an environment free of discrimination and open to diverse perspectives, where all employees feel they are seen, heard and belong.”
