A path to Indigenous Inclusion
Our Diversity & Inclusion Program is a collection of strategies and tools designed to help an organization reach its Indigenous Inclusion goals. Our unique approach builds a foundation of trust and awareness to support long term relationships and tactical active engagement solutions to provide immediate impact.
FoundationsEstablish Community Presence to Build Credibility
The Community Connections Foundations Subscription is a brand-building program designed to help organizations tell their inclusion story. Building a community presence, demonstrating commitment, and establishing a connection between the individual and the organization’s corporate brand is the foundation of Indigenous Inclusion.
• Demonstrate commitment
• Increase Indigenous representation
• Establish and/or enhance community presence
• Improve engagement rates
• Expand corporate brand awareness
• Tell your story
Virtual Career Fair Page
To help job seekers understand your corporate commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, a dedicated webpage is provided on our career fair site. This page helps to tell your story, enhance your brand and increase awareness.
Using your ATS career feed, your career opportunities are presented in our job board and displayed on your Virtual Career Fair page. By displaying relevant content here, this tool helps build brand awareness and engage potential job-seekers. For organizations without an ATS, our ‘Web Scraping’ tool can be customized to harvest jobs from most company hosted careers webpages. This solution will be quoted as an upgrade.
Your Corporate Logo is displayed as a banner in rotation throughout our careers site. Enhancing your brand while offering top-of-mind visibility, your banner encourages job-seekers to visit your Virtual Career Fair page. Companies wishing to promote their commitment to Indigenous Inclusion can use IndigenousLink’s logo on their website as part of the Foundations program.
One of the most effective ways to build a community presence is to deliver your ‘strategic’ message directly into the ‘Traditional’ and ‘Cultural’ Indigenous communities. We reach leaders, decision-makers, and community members using our proprietary database. More than 28,000 urban, rural, and remote centres of influence are reached where 1.7 million Indigenous Peoples work, live, learn, and play.
*Subscriptions can be cancelled after the first 12 months with 30 days notice.
