Diversio Acquires CCDI Consulting to Enhance Workplace Diversity and Inclusion

Diversio, a global diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) platform, has acquired CCDI Consulting Inc., a subsidiary of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI). The acquisition aims to deepen CCDI's commitment to its core charitable mandate and mission of building a more inclusive Canada.

Why this matters: This acquisition has significant implications for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in Canadian workplaces, which can lead to improved employee satisfaction, retention, and productivity. As businesses increasingly recognize the importance of DEI initiatives, this partnership can drive meaningful change and support organizations in creating more inclusive cultures.

CCDI Consulting was established in 2015 as a for-profit company to provide consulting and training services to CCDI's Employer Partners and other businesses. The acquisition presents an opportunity for both CCDI and Diversio to enhance their services and support to organizations seeking to foster more inclusive workplaces.

Anne-Marie Pham, CEO at CCDI, emphasized the organization's unwavering commitment to its partners and stakeholders, stating, "CCDI's unwavering commitment to supporting our 700+ Employer Partners, individual practitioners and community members remains unchanged. We stand steadfast in our goal to support and amplify individuals and organizations in Canada to become DEI change agents."

CCDI, a national charity established in 2013, will continue to focus on its core offerings, including webinars, conferences, research, and resources on DEI in the workplace. The organization provides services in both English and French to its over 700 Employer Partners across Canada.

The acquisition of CCDI Consulting by Diversio marks a significant step in advancing workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion in Canada. By combining the expertise and resources of both organizations, this partnership has the potential to drive meaningful change and support businesses in creating more inclusive cultures. As organizations increasingly recognize the importance of DEI initiatives, the demand for effective solutions and guidance continues to grow.
