Endorsement of York Region Inclusion Charter
Diversity is one of Richmond Hill’s strengths as both a community and as an organization. And the Town of Richmond Hill prides itself on being inclusive by creating an environment where everyone can develop to their fullest potential, participate freely and live with respect, dignity and freedom from discrimination.
With this in mind, Council endorsed York Region’s Inclusion Charter, along with a commitment statement of its own that details Richmond Hill’s unique actions to implement the inclusion charter within the organization. The Inclusion Charter for York Region is a community initiative that brings together businesses, community organizations, municipalities, police services, hospitals, school boards, conservation authorities and agencies with a common commitment to create an inclusive environment with equality for all who work, live and play here. The Charter supports Richmond Hill’s commitment to inclusion and enhances our ongoing work to attract and retain the best talent, promote innovation and provide an excellent service experience.
Richmond Hill’s Inclusion Charter states: Together with other participating organizations, The Town of Richmond Hill is committed to taking action to achieve the vision of the Charter in our organization and in the community. Richmond Hill celebrates its growing and diverse population and staff as a source of strength and vitality. Richmond Hill’s dedication to inclusion enhances its vision to be a place “where people come together to build their community.”
