In 2019, Interac embarked upon an ambitious Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) initiative built on the following Statement of Intention:
"We are united by our deep sense of pride in the Interac brand. Our aim is to translate that into a passion for our workplace: into creating an environment for diversity of thought and experience to thrive; where unique ideas, perspectives and voices are not only welcomed but encouraged; and where we are aligned in both strategy and culture."
The Interac Program recognizes 8 dimensions of demographic and cognitive diversity and will be implemented through 8 types of initiatives, all of which are designed to promote fair treatment, equal access to opportunities and organizational flexibility.
The program has full buy-in from the Executive Committee and individual initiatives are staffed by teams of employee volunteers.
Our pledge is to embed it in our employee life cycle practices; to exhibit it as a core component of our culture; and to partner with like-minded organizations to bring about positive change.
