The Niagara 2022 Host Society is proud to announce that Accenture will become the Official Diversity and Inclusion Partner for the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games, playing a lead role in creating activations that will engage Games’ participants and spectators alike and celebrate Canada’s diversity during next summer’s event.
These celebration sites and activations will aim to foster a more welcoming and safe environment for everyone at both sport and non-sport venue sites at the 2022 Canada Summer Games regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, age or disability.
“Inclusivity and safe sport are two driving principles of any Canada Games, and thanks to support from organizations like Accenture, Niagara 2022 is proud to be taking meaningful steps to further these principles,” said Doug Hamilton, Board Chair of the Niagara 2022 Host Society. “The Canada Games are a vital experience in the journey of many young Canadian athletes, and we want to provide a safe and inclusive environment for this experience.”
“Accenture’s commitment to being an inclusive and diverse company extends beyond our offices and into our communities,” added Rachel Stuchberry, a managing director at Accenture in Niagara. “Sport is one of the most powerful vehicles to cultivate change in the community and the larger society because it teaches us to respect and value one another. By partnering with the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games, we’ll work to support an environment where everyone can be their authentic selves and where we will also celebrate our diversity in Canada.”
