The Bentway values diversity and strives to reflect the communities it serves. To ensure diverse teams, the organization encourages and prioritizes applications from members of groups that are historically, persistently, and systemically underrepresented including: Indigenous, Black and people of colour; people identifying as LGBTQ2AI+ and/or non-binary; people living with visible and invisible disabilities; and members of other equity-seeking groups. The Bentway encourages applicants to self-identify if they wish to do so during the application process.
