Is there a way to advance DEI collectively?

Are you a leader, manager, decision-maker, human resource professional, and/or other type of change maker interested in implementing DEI and empowering immigrant women? 

Ineffective diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives often result from siloed efforts and fragmented attempts to address complex systemic issues. An effective and meaningful DEI strategy needs more than strategic planning. Sustainable change demands a shift to a systemic and collaborative approach.

What does DEI really mean for immigrant women in Canada and Canadian workplaces?

How can we foster systems change in the workplace towards more inclusive outcomes for highly-skilled and highly-educated immigrant women?

We believe it starts with intentional conversations with all stakeholders and the deliberate integration of inclusive frameworks and processes. Join our conversation!

InHeartSight knows the value of having a community to help us find our path in this country. We believe that there's so much we can learn and gain from each other.


We held virtual roundtable discussions in July and August 2023 for recent women immigrants and allies.


The purpose of these events was to offer a safe space for recent women immigrants to share their stories, concerns, and challenges about navigating their careers and new life in Canada. The events also offered attendees the opportunities to meet and network with other women who share similar experiences.
