Map and Directions
Leaders in the federal public service need to question the underlying assumptions of systemic discrimination contained in the Employment Equity Act and the Abella Report. The construction of the Abella Report and the Employment Equity Act are rooted in brutal societal racism. In 1984, it was rampant. The question is: Do we still have the same reality in 2019? Most observers would conclude that the mindset has shifted, as a result in part of HR implications and leadership showed by unions, employees and managers. The institutional commitment to representation overall has been massive. Every department requires an employment equity plan, has a manager and staff responsible for diversity, has likely a diversity committee and provides diversity training for managers and employees. Most departments evaluate managers on some aspects of advancing diversity. Most departments have countless networks for social gatherings for employees. Other departments provide formal mentoring programs for designated groups. Considering these massive efforts and investments to enact the provisions of the Employment Equity Act, it seems clear that the Act is no longer sufficient to explain the underrepresentation of visible minorities, particularly at the most senior executive levels, Indigenous peoples or People with a disability.
