What was this engagement about? 

We are aware that some Indigenous people experience barriers to employment with the Government of Yukon and advancement within the organization. As a government, we remain committed to achieving the vision of Breaking Trail Together by creating an engaging and inclusive workplace experience where employees feel safe, supported and respected as professionals.  

This project is to explore the barriers that Indigenous applicants and employees experience throughout the recruitment process and employee experience with the Yukon government – the initial phase being the development of a report and recommendations based on information gathering.   

How will my input make a difference? 

Information gathered from this engagement will inform our report and recommendations for next steps, as well as the next operational plan for Breaking Trail Together. To do this work right and make a difference, we need to gather information and stories from both our current and former employees, and members of the public.
