“When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become a wiser, more inclusive, and better organization.”
— Pat Wadors, Head of HR at LinkedIn



My name is Kim Scaravelli. As Managing Partner of The Canadian Diversity Initiative, my role is to help individuals and organizations access DEI training and ensure that our courses are accurate, engaging, and helpful.

My favourite part of the job is chatting with employers across Canada about their diversity and inclusion goals and challenges - and helping them move forward. If you'd like to learn more about our DEI training and our options for employers, please book a call.

I look forward to speaking with you!

Easy to follow

As we began hiring staff quite quickly a few months back, I wanted to ensure that we as a company were remaining as impartial as possible when reviewing job applicants. This course made me question the way we do things and gave me actionable points that we could implement. It was also very easy to follow.

Highly recommended for small organizations

Canadian Diversity Initiative courses are comparable to longer, more expensive programs, are developed in community, and can be carried out at the learner’s convenience. Highly recommended for small orgs or frequently changing teams.

Challenged my own description of inclusion

This course challenged in my own description of inclusion and how best to create a comfortable, safe environment for teams. It was really valuable for me to look at the ways discrimination and harassment can be perceived and avoided to create a respectful inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and business productivity can be maximized.
