Board Diversity Statement

After much thoughtful conversation, the Board of Directors’ approved the following Board Diversity Statement at its May 2018 meeting:

The Vancity Board believes embracing diversity involves continually seeking to learn, engage, reflect, and act in order to meet the needs of our members, employees, and communities.

We acknowledge systemic barriers of discrimination and inequity, and power imbalances related to privilege. We recognize we must work to address these issues. The inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences, aligned with Vancity’s values of integrity, innovation, responsibility, and reconciliation, helps us to be more courageous in our efforts to achieve the transformative change our vision demands.
