TORONTO — This month is Pride Month and Skills Ontario is commemorating it.
Pride Month is a time to recognize the impact that 2SLGBTQIA+ (Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and all other affirmative ways in which people choose to self-identify) individuals have had on society locally, nationally and internationally, Skills Ontario said in a release.
The organization provides diversity, equity and inclusion programs and initiatives and strives to work with communities across Ontario to ensure it is providing equal opportunities for all youth and building a diverse and robust skilled workforce.
“In acknowledgement of Pride Month, Skills Ontario celebrates this important time and remains committed to representing all groups in our programming,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario, in a statement. “We are pleased to present opportunities to Ontarians across the province to explore the many rewarding pathways in the skilled trades and technologies.”
