DCC honoured at Employment Equity Achievement Awards

DCC was a winner in all five categories of the 2023 Employment Equity Achievement Awards.

DCC was recognized for Indigenous reconciliation, sector distinction, outstanding commitment to employment equity, and innovation.

In addition, Derrick Cheung, President and CEO, was honoured as an employment equity champion. This award recognizes executives for their proven record of championing employment equity in their organization as well as their overall contribution to diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace.

“DCC is very proud to be recognized in so many ways for its employment equity efforts,” says Derrick. “It is an achievement in which all DCC employees, leaders, managers and executives had a hand.”

At the awards ceremony, Derrick participated in a “fireside chat” with the two other champions (Stacey Miller, RST Sunbury Transport, and Brandy Ryan, Canada Post) on challenges and opportunities when building a foundation for a diverse and inclusive workplace.

The Employment Achievement Awards recognize federally regulated private-sector employers and federal contractors for their outstanding commitment to and achievements in implementing employment equity in their organization.

DCC was 1 of 19 employers honoured by Minister of Labour Seamus O’Regan Jr. at a ceremony at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre on November 22, 2023.
