D2L, a global learning technology company, has earned three employer of choice awards in 2023 through Canada’s Top 100 annual editorial competition, including recognition as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers.
“Here at D2L, we value diversity and aim to shape a work environment that creates an inclusive environment for all employees,” said Yvonne Bell, Senior Vice President of People and Culture at D2L. “I’d like to thank the people at Canada’s Top 100 Employers for recognizing the hard work of our People and Culture team as well the contributions of our inclusive culture that supports employees at all stages of their career journey.”
Canada’s Best Diversity Employers recognizes employers across Canada that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs. On March 8, D2L was named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers, for its five-pillar approach to diversity equity and inclusion as well as its robust training to enhance employee and manager knowledge and expectations. D2L trains its employees on topics like unconscious bias, gender equity, allyship, gender inclusive communication, and power and privilege. The company also sponsors employment resource groups including Women in Action, BIPOC Employee Network (BEN), D2SLGBTQ+, Indigenous education and allyship, and others.
