At Bell, we are proud of our commitment to fostering an inclusive, equitable and accessible workplace, where all team members and customers feel valued, respected and supported. We are dedicated to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities in which we live and serve and where every team member has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Under the direction of our Diversity Leadership Council, we ensure our business strategy is aligned with our diversity and inclusion goals. We recognize that diverse perspectives enhance our team’s innovation and creativity and allow us to provide best-in-class service to our customers.

In 2017, Bell was recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers.

We currently focus our efforts on a number of areas of diversity and inclusion, including:

  • Women
  • Visible minorities
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Mental health
  • Indigenous peoples
  • Generations
  • Language
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (LGBT)
  • Religion
  • Veterans

We also have employee-led networks that provide networking, professional development and mentorship. Since 2007, the Women at Bell program has been supporting the development of women at all levels by helping to increase their internal and external visibility and creating opportunities for education, career development and mentorship. Since 2009, Bell’s employee-led Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Affinity Group has also been working internally and with external partners to provide support and networking opportunities within Bell and the larger LGBT community.

Bell is a leader in developing and implementing mental health practices in our workplace and a champion of mental health initiatives in our communities. Through Bell Let's Talk Day, we are well on our way to donating at least $100 million to mental health initiatives in Canada through 2020 for community care, research and workplace best practices.

Bell has also sponsored a number of external organizations and events celebrating Canada’s diversity including the SABAR (Strategic Alliance of Broadcasters for Aboriginal Reflection), Inside Out (Toronto’s LGBT Film Festival), the Yee Hong Dragon Ball and Bell is the official telecommunications partner for the Canadian Paralympic Team.
