DEI Committee


The CMA DEI Committee works to eliminate systemic barriers and provoke real change in Canadian marketing. This includes:

  • Helping to design and interpret research that aims to understand how diverse, equitable and inclusive the Canadian marketing community is, and how we can cultivate change.
  • Developing best practices for setting achievable goals, shifting company culture, hiring and onboarding diverse talent, and measuring results.
  • Bringing mentorship opportunities to marketers from diverse backgrounds in the early stages of their career.
  • Developing thought leadership content and events to encourage dialogue and raise awareness.
