Sonja Volpe, CEO of BNP Paribas in Canada, recently announced a collaboration with EY Canada to promote accessibility, inclusivity, and empowerment for neurodivergent professionals. “We strongly believe in a more open culture to recognize individual skills and potential,” Volpe said. “We are looking forward to reducing the barriers to inclusive and equitable employment.”
Approximately 20% of the Canadian population identifies as neurodivergent, and 50% of Canadians are connected to disability in some way. And in the current environment, attracting talent has become a barrier to success for many organizations. “A lot of skilled talent remains underutilized in the labour market, however we are pleased to see BNP Paribas in Canada looking to attract and retain neurodiverse professionals given today’s demands for innovation and growth,” Anthony Rjeily, EY Canada Neurodiversity Leader, said.
