Mississauga Partners with Life Sciences Companies to Advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The City of Mississauga’s Economic Development Office (EDO), in collaboration with the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (Canada Region), is pleased to announce the establishment of the Equity and Diversity Collaborative – a consortium of health-care and life sciences companies dedicated to advancing gender equity and diversity in the workplace.

“In Mississauga, gender equity and diversity is a priority for the City, and we have started our own work, looking internally to identify gaps and develop strategies to address barriers,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We’re pleased to partner with the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association and the many life sciences companies that are dedicated to recognizing this and committed to taking action from both a social imperative and business improvement perspective. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and as we focus on economic recovery in our community, we’re working to build back better and ensure everyone within our community is supported.”
