Business Champions Network
The Business Champions Network (BCN) is an informal network of companies and organizations that are interested in advancing and shaping the workplace inclusion environment in the Edmonton region. The purpose of the Business Champions Network (BCN) is to connect employers from across Edmonton who are seeking to work collaboratively to increase both inclusion and representation of people with disabilities within the broader workforce.
BCN members participate in an environment where there is a high level of trust and members feel comfortable sharing their experiences, asking questions and providing comments.
Members contribute to a successful network by actively participating in the network. Members can volunteer/will be invited to take on various roles that recognize differing interests, abilities and resources.
Members ensure that sensitive information shared within the network will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to other parties outside of the network, without prior authorization from the member and network.
