Champions for Cultural Diversity 2020
The New Brunswick Multicultural Council (NBMC) awarded prizes to a dozen Champions for Cultural Diversity. This award ceremony aims to recognize individuals and employers who are actively working towards increasing diversity and inclusion in New Brunswick workplaces and communities.
These awards not only recognize how the recipients act, but also how they stand out as champions in these areas, inspiring others to follow in their footsteps and promote diversity and inclusion in their own workplaces, schools and communities.
“Newcomers to New Brunswick transform our region in so many ways,” says Ginette Gautreau, NBMC’s interim Executive Director. “You’ll see some of these recipients have added to the economy, while others have made our community a more interesting and vibrant place to live through their cultural contributions. Yet others have changed our schools and workplaces to make them more inclusive, but the one thing they have in common is that they’ve helped bring our province together.”
This year, NBMC’s call for nominations was successful in receiving several dozen nominations in the different categories.
NBMC would like to congratulate all winners and nominees, including other employers and individuals who strive for the integration of newcomers and immigrants across New Brunswick’s communities.
