Abigail Tulloch, Infrastructure Ontario – Winner
Ottawa-born Abigail Tulloch is Senior Legal Counsel at Infrastructure Ontario. She transformed the organisation’s approach to D&I to better address anti-racism and specifically anti-Black racism, and onboarded the strategy to IO’s senior leadership and Board of Directors. This included structuring and leading an Anti-Racism Working Committee of over 70 employees, championing increased data and metric collection with the organisation’s first demographic survey (which received a participation rate of 83%) and secure approval to hire a Head of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion. The impact of her work is felt not only internally, but externally through the organisation’s support of corporations and institutions across Ontario and wider Canada.
