Business line: Respectful and Inclusive Workplace

In support of the Government of Canada's ongoing commitment to providing a respectful and inclusive workplace for its employees, the School's Respectful and Inclusive Workplace business line provides a variety of learning products and events for public servants at all levels on topics such as harassment prevention, accessibility, occupational health and safety, unconscious bias, mental health, positive space and gender-based analysis.

By developing knowledge, skills, and competencies in these areas, organizations and employees can help create and sustain a culture that creates and preserves psychological health, safety and well-being in all aspects of the workplace through collaboration, inclusivity and respect. This will help drive a culture shift towards a more agile, inclusive and equipped public service in line with the Government of Canada's Beyond 2020 public service renewal efforts.
