BCLC is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, where all employees are afforded equal opportunity and treated with dignity and respect. Dedicated Pride and Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Committees guide BCLC in promoting and supporting a diverse and inclusive working environment that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
“Diversity, inclusion and belonging is a journey, not a destination, and I’m so proud to see the Progress flag flown at BCLC’s headquarters in Kamloops. This signifies an important step forward in BCLC’s journey to better reflect diversity and inclusion.”
– Peter ter Weeme, BCLC’s Chief Social Purpose Officer and Vice President, Player Experience
Katelyn Boughton, Kamloops Pride Committee President and Senior System Analyst at BCLC, is a founding member of BCLC’s own Pride Committee and has been monumental in many Pride initiatives at BCLC, including the 2019 unveiling of the rainbow crosswalk.
“Flying the Progress flag at BCLC symbolizes that diversity, inclusion, belonging and feeling accepted as LGBTQ2S+ are important to us, and matter to everyone at BCLC. This was a collaborative effort between Executives, the Pride Committee and the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee and demonstrates BCLC’s commitment to the LGBTQ2S+ community in Kamloops, Vancouver and right across the province.”
– Katelyn Boughton, Kamloops Pride Committee President and Senior System Analyst at BCLC
BCLC humbly acknowledges that our head office is situated on the unceded, traditional territory of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc. The flags at our Kamloops headquarters, including the new Progress flag, will continue to fly at half-mast to honour the victims of the Kamloops residential school and their families.
BCLC is a provincial Crown corporation offering socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating more than $1 billion in provincial revenue last year that went back into health care, education and community groups across B.C.
