Our inclusive policies and programs are centered on our core value to provide equal opportunity and respect for all. With our Community & Belonging initiatives, we provide our teams with resources, insights and stories (drawn from our own media brands) to actively engage with DEI topics and culturally significant occasions such as National Day for Truth & Reconciliation and International Women’s Day. We also organize events that bring our teams together to appreciate and celebrate our inherent multiculturalism and shared humanity. Through initiatives such as employer partnerships, we are consistently working toward cultivating a more diverse talent pool, ultimately contributing to a more creative and successful SJC.
We are committed to help build a more inclusive and equitable society. We provide pro bono advertising space and make charitable donations to support underrepresented groups, offer magazine fellowships and internships, and facilitate meaningful staff Volunteer Day opportunities. We also present an annual Family Wellness Grant to a non-profit serving underprivileged communities and disadvantaged groups. Our initial three grants were awarded to the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada, the George Hull Centre for Children & Families Wellness, and the SMILE (single mothers inspiring leadership in education) Foundation. As a communications company, we recognize the important role we can play in amplifying the messages and missions of vital diversity initiatives that are the cornerstones of strong communities.
