I.D.E.A. Resources

At Ontario Genomics we embrace inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) principles and we strive to incorporate these into our strategic actions. 

As part of our commitment to IDEA, Ontario Genomics has taken the following steps:

  • Put in place an internal IDEA Committee composed of staff and leadership representatives and tasked to leverage internal and external resources to increase competencies and develop a short-, medium- and long-term Action Plan for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment within our organization and our community.
  • Signed on to the Government of Canada’s 50-30 Challenge thereby committing to increasing representation of women at the Senior Management and Board of Directors level (aiming towards gender parity [“50%”]) and working towards significant representation (“30%”) of other under-represented groups: racialized persons including Black Canadians, persons living with disabilities (including invisible and episodic disabilities), Canadians who identify as LGBTQ2+, and Indigenous peoples.
