Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion survey asks for input from Peel community

Brampton, ON - (January 3, 2023) – The Region of Peel is developing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Strategy. Community input and insight are vital for the plan’s development. Residents and community members are invited to participate and share feedback that will help identify gaps and barriers in the delivery of programs and services.

This 5-year DEI Strategy will reflect the needs of Peel Region’s diverse communities and employees. Feedback will help inform how we develop and deliver our programs and services, contributing to a healthy, safe, and connected community and a more inclusive workplace.

There are three (3) different ways that residents and community members can share input, and insights.

  1. Complete our brief online survey before January 31, 2023.
  2. Visit our booth at the Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives (PAMA) on January 19, 2023.
  3. Register for an upcoming focus group. Focus groups are 60 minute, virtual sessions being held throughout January.

We all have a role to play in improving the culture of the Region of Peel. Change will not be easy, and it may make us uncomfortable. The insights from the Peel community will help us improve diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will make a significant impact on how we move forward.
