In this episode of Road to Recovery, CHEK’s Kori Sidaway speaks to Ruth Mojeed, founder of The Inclusion Project, about how the project uses data to drive change towards diversity in the workplace.
Mojeed says the project aims to “shift” the understanding of what data means.
“Very often, organizations tend to look at data from that quantitative, numbers-based approach and for us, numbers just don’t tell the full story,” she said.
The Inclusion Project is a network and resource hub for organizations and institutions looking to improve racial equity, diversity and inclusion.
Mojeed, who is originally from Nigeria and moved to Vancouver Island to study at the Royal Roads University, founded the project after she noticed that many of her classmates who were international students struggled to find internships or work in the region following graduation.
