Today is the day the BlackNorth Initiative is proud to present our Magazine titled “Year One.” Year One showcases where we’ve come from, the progress we have made, the work that is yet to be done, and showcases the future of the BlackNorth Initiative.

Year One includes a case study conducted in partnership with 182 of our signatories about their progress in creating more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces for their employees. We also showcase our current and upcoming partnerships with the Rotman School of Management, CIBC, CivicMatch, BCG, TorStar, and details how we help our signatories implement their CEO pledge. Year One also features a preview of our Racial Equity Playbook, a tool developed for our signatories, and details how organizations can best implement programs and practices to create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces. Also included are recaps of our past events, such as our Black History Month speaker series and our BlackNorth Ignites series.
