The "Every Step Counts" Challenge is...

A fun way to develop an internal culture and bring your staff or colleagues together around the themes of diversity, inclusion and disability while combining mobilization and health at work. Each step taken while walking or running allows our beneficiaries to live in dignity.

Companies who Participated in Our Challenge

 



Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the heart of BNP Paribas’ commitments. BNP Paribas recently partnered with Humanity & Inclusion Canada (HI) for the Every Step Counts Challenge. This challenge was aligned with our goal to promote accessibility, inclusivity, and empowerment of people with diverse abilities. It was also a wonderful opportunity for our teams to get together after 2 long years of pandemic around an inclusive purpose. We reached our objective ahead of time and we’re very proud of our employees that enthusiastically invested their time and effort in helping a vulnerable population. We would like to thank HI Canada for their commitment and continuous support throughout the challenge.
