Our DEI Mandate
As a member-owned and governed company, Trillium Mutual recognizes that diversity and inclusion are vital to a successful future. We adopt these definitions of Diversity & Inclusion:
- Diversity refers to the presence of people who, as a group, have a wide range of characteristics, seen and unseen, which they were born with or have acquired. These characteristics may include their gender identity, race or ethnicity, military or veteran status, LGBTQ+ status, disability status, and more.
- Inclusion refers to the practice of making all members of an organization feel welcomed and giving them equal opportunity to connect, belong, and grow—to contribute to the organization, advance their skill sets and careers, and feel comfortable and confident being their authentic selves. 1
Trillium Mutual commits to maintaining and promoting a culture that is inclusive and welcoming to all peoples. A workforce that is diverse, and that improves its understanding of various cultures, backgrounds and experiences, is in a better position to serve its members. The Board and Employees of the Company commit to identifying and challenging their own inherent biases, and to consider diversity and inclusion principles in all aspects of the business.
We acknowledge that our office and traditional coverage area spans traditional lands of the Neutral, Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee Peoples. We acknowledge that we are all treaty people and accept our responsibility to honour all our relations with First Peoples throughout Ontario. As an organization, Trillium Mutual is committed to learning more about the impact of colonialism on local First Nations peoples; it is committed to determining its role in reconciliation and collaboration.
