CIC Mobilization Centre

Diversity and Inclusion

The CIC is an organization that is founded on engaging the Canadian public in foreign affairs, and to further our impact we’re launching a mobilization centre that will spotlight varying issues in foreign policy, and encourage CIC members to deepen their level of engagement and take action.

As part of honouring our commitment to making the CIC a more diverse organization, the first major theme for our mobilization centre is Diversity and Inclusion. Below you’ll find a number of actions we’ve recommended members take in order to work towards making the CIC and the foreign policy sphere a more inclusive space.
