Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – November 25, 2010 – Members of the BC Employer Diversity Forum (BCEDF) held their second roundtable meeting on Tuesday November 23rd in Downtown Vancouver, hosted by Deloitte and facilitated by Open Door Group. Organizers were thrilled to report that over twenty-five individuals attended the meeting, representing businesses based in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia and Canada.

The highlight was an open discussion exploring the motivations and challenges of Diversity Hiring, from various perspectives. The panel included: a Senior-level Executive, Human Resources Managers, Hiring and Department/Branch Managers, Employees & Job Seekers representing persons with disabilities, immigrants and aboriginals, and Service Providers representing persons with disabilities, immigrants and aboriginals. The panel also shared and discussed the tools and resources available to access and retain diverse candidate pools. Organizers and meeting attendees alike expressed the value in coming together with such a knowledgeable and open group of individuals.
