What we’re doing about Covid-19: a message from CEO Neelam Sahota

Important information for staff, partners and clients about our response to COVID-19 and impact on DIVERSEcity programs and services

To all our clients, partners and stakeholders

These are unprecedented times, and DIVERSEcity’s top priority is to ensure the safety of all our employees, partners, volunteers and clients. We want to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, so after careful consideration by our Board of Directors and our senior Leadership Team, we will be closing our DIVERSEcity offices to visitors and clients at the end of the day on March 20, 2020 until further notice.

Given the nature of our services, the reliance of our employees, partners, volunteers and clients on public transit, and the vulnerability of the clients we serve, we feel this is the responsible decision for the safety of our community.

During this time, we will continue to support our clients remotely via email, phone and web options where we can, as we know that they continue to need our support, perhaps now more than ever. We are working to mobilize remote working options for our employees in order to ensure service continuity as much as possible.

We hope you will understand and support our decision. It is not one we take lightly, as we know our clients depend on our services. However, we want to err on the side of caution to do our part to keep the community safe for everyone.

Further details on our response and specific programs and services will be shared daily here. Please bookmark this page and/or follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) @DIVERSEcityBC to stay up to date with our COVID-19 response.

Let’s work together to prevent the further spread of this virus by social distancing and staying at home where possible! From all of us at DIVERSEcity, we wish you health and safety for yourself and your loved ones.

— Neelam Sahota, Chief Executive Officer, DIVERSEcity
