Volleyball Canada Partners with Deloitte to Develop its Long-term Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategy

May 02, 2022:  Volleyball Canada is pleased to announce that it is working in partnership with Deloitte Inc. on the development of its Equity Diversity and Inclusion (DEI) Strategic Framework and Implementation Plan. Funding support for this partnership has been provided by the Canadian Olympic Committee through its NSO Return to Sport Program.

Ensuring volleyball is accessible to everyone is one of the foundations of our commitment to our players, parents, coaches, officials, and partners. Volleyball Canada will be asking stakeholders to reflect and give feedback on how the organization should build a more inclusive sport for all. 

As a starting point on this journey, Volleyball Canada is working with Deloitte to conduct a survey of members of the volleyball community.  Over the course of the next few months, Deloitte will be asking for your help to provide us with key information we will need to help ensure we remain as inclusive as possible. 

The survey will have two objectives:

  • Gather a deep understanding of the demographics of the volleyball community across Canada.
  • Understand the sentiments around equity and inclusion among stakeholders.
    Your voice, perspective, and feedback matters! 

We look forward to hearing from you and including your voice in this survey: Deloitte Volleyball Survey.  All information collected will remain confidential and will be secured by Deloitte.  All data will be reported in aggregate form only. The survey should take no longer than five minutes. We appreciate your time and the important perspectives you will provide.

The survey will be deployed through the VC website, at events, through membership lists and through all stakeholders in all disciplines. The second phase will be to stage focus group discussions. The goal is to engage all stakeholders to understand their journey, and to identify the critical moments and barriers they face. 

From this research, we hope to identify strategic DEI priorities that align with the most impactful critical moments and/or barriers across stakeholder participation.
