The Surety Association of Canada (SAC) has published “People: Our Most Valuable Resource”, the association’s position statement on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

In making the announcement, SAC president Steve Ness stressed the need for a fully diverse and inclusive working environment. “As a volunteer‐driven organization, our people are our most precious resource”, he said. “SAC is totally committed to creating and maintaining a culture where no individual or group is left out of the conversation.”.

The document includes a statement of SAC’s core beliefs around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, but it goes beyond that by identifying three objectives in support of those principles. Ness maintains that a workplace that is welcoming, inclusive and supportive to everyone is critical to association’s success.

“Making sure that each and every staff worker, volunteer and member is given the opportunity and incentive to fully participate in SAC activities and initiatives is not only the right thing to do, it is simply good business,” he said.
