At the GTAA, we are committed to celebrating diversity, in an equitable and inclusive way every day. We aim to improve representation across our organization and to create a culture of belonging for all our GTAA employees.
Employee Resource Groups
The GTAA supports Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) – grassroots, employee-led initiatives that celebrate diversity and foster inclusion. ERGs span diverse ages, identities, positions, abilities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and allies. By actively participating and getting involved, we can all create a unified GTAA that celebrates our differences and fosters inclusion by finding equitable solutions to support our employees.
The Black Professionals Network is a voluntary, employee-led group, developed through grassroots channels to build a nurturing and empowering community for Black employees at the GTAA through professional development and social networking activities. The Black Professionals Network aims to foster a diverse and inclusive workplace aligned with the values of the GTAA. They hope to promote communication, interaction, and networking, and to maintain an inclusive and supportive environment that addresses the needs of Black employees.
Rainbow Runway, the first 2SLGBTQIA+ ERG at the GTAA, is a voluntary, employee-led, grassroots group, developed to help remove barriers, dismantle stigma, and enable members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities and their allies at the GTAA to find each other and build a welcoming and inclusive workspace.
The Women’s Alliance @YYZ is an employee resource group (ERG) invested in the inclusion and advancement of women in the workplace. The Women’s Alliance @YYZ will create a community of employees to support the unique needs of women within the organization to foster and support one another in the development of women at the GTAA and within our community.
Sky’s The Limit is our newest employee resource group, it is employee-led and aims to support employees of all abilities, whether they are a person with a visible disability, a person with an invisible disability or an ally, in achieving their career aspirations at the GTAA. Sky’s The Limit provides a safe space to discuss and brainstorm all things accessibility and collaborates with employees across the organization as we work to become a more inclusive organization.
Community Partnerships and Initiatives
We are committed to making a difference and having a positive impact in our communities. Our passion for DEI as an organization has led us to support many organizations including those at the grassroots level as they have a similar focus on uplifting our communities and providing equitable support to equity-deserving communities and causes.
Our Propeller Project is focused on investing in community-building initiatives through our two funding streams: Uplift and Nest, to create strong and happier communities.
