Safe Harbour: Respect for All is about a vision in action: creating opportunities for businesses, institutions, agencies, and municipalities to create more welcoming communities that support diversity and reject discrimination.
The Safe Harbour designation within your organization is an announcement to diverse employees, as well as to the community, of strong commitments to providing equitable treatment and actively welcoming diversity. Organizations interested in becoming certified are invited to sign on to three key commitments:
Equitable Treatment for All: welcoming all clients and/or customers in a respectful manner. If a concern is expressed regarding a lack of respectful treatment, employers and staff take steps to address it.
An Immediate Safe Place: for someone experiencing discrimination in or near the worksite which may include a place to sit, a glass of water, a phone to use, and access to a list of resources.
Prepared Employees and Worksites: preparing all managers and staff to implement these commitments.
“Our City of Colours is a supporter of Safe Harbour and has benefited hugely by Safe Harbour’s education on equitable treatment and respectable environment. The organization shares Safe Harbour’s admirable ideal of celebrating diversity. Our City of Colours thanks the Richmond Multicultural Community Services for the workshop.” – Our City of Colours
