Plenary Session 1
Opening Keynote: Business Strength Through Diversity
Deepak Chopra, President, Pitney Bowes Canada Ltd.
Rejecting the idea of “fitting in,” Pitney Bowes Canada celebrates and harnesses employees’ differences to drive business success. Long-time champion of workplace diversity, Deepak Chopra will examine the business imperative for diversity, and how Pitney Bowes has achieved greater success with diversity. As Deepak says:
There are too many companies that are busy admiring the problem of diversity. We don’t take that approach. When you walk onto our premises, you will never see a diversity poster. We think the ultimate recognition is our own people who are a living example of our practices.
—Toronto Star, March 25, 2010
Under Deepak’s leadership, Pitney Bowes was joint winner of the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council RBC Immigrant Advantage Award. He will discuss his organization’s initiatives, and proven diversity strategies you can apply in your workplace.
