Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

The Canadian Association of Security and Intelligence Studies (CASIS) appreciates the importance of creating an environment where all of our members feel valued, included and empowered to bring great ideas to the table. We are committed to encouraging and fostering diversity, inclusion and a strong sense of community for all members. This includes embracing different cultures, races, ethnicities, religions, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, appearance, age, cognitive and physical abilities, family composition, rank, role, tenure, and other personal or professional identity markers.

CASIS also values gender equity, including equity in gender identity and gender expression. We encourage representation from equity-seeking groups such as women, marginalized group members, Indigenous peoples, disability unrelated to job requirements, veteran status, military service, persons who identify in the LGBTQ2+ community, or other protected status.

We recognize that each member’s unique experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints across our various companies are critical to creating suitable programs and solutions. Therefore, our goal is to foster an environment that is an incubator for great ideas, is attractive to the best talent from across the industry, and creates a profound sense of pride across our group, thereby adding value to holding CASIS membership.

Our diversity and inclusion efforts include:

  • Leading and managing inclusively
  • Creating an environment that fosters growth and advancement within the industry
  • Engaging with our members in a way that reflects and respects their unique perspectives and experiences.
