  • Over the past year, Canadian Tire employed its first vice-president of diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIB) and established a dedicated DIB team, responsible for developing and implementing the company's five-year strategy -- the group recently organized Courageous Conversations to create space for, and prioritize employee voices, allowing them to share thoughts on topics such as anti-Black racism and anti-Asian hate
