Luncheon December 14 with CCDI

What is diversity, equity and inclusion? Why is this important for workplaces across Canada?

On December 14, 2022, Devika Pandey from the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI) provided a comprehensive presentation at our Networking Luncheon in Calgary.

Devika provided a few tools to take back in our personal lives as well as to the workplace. Although the specific material presented to us is not available to share, please visit the CCDI website (https://ccdi.ca/) to access a plethora of resources on this topic.


The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
