“Manpreet and the team at Veza helped us take the ASCEND project from concept to a dynamic and interactive solution for the challenges of keeping immigrants from finding work that makes full use of their skills. Veza brought innovative approaches that serve to help immigrants and employers overcome the long-standing and complex issue of underemployment of immigrants in Canada.”

Patrick Mackenzie

Immigrant Employers Council of BC

“Manpreet and Veza led the cultural and diversity aspect of the Vancouver Police Department’s successful Pipe Band tour of India. Manpreet through her strong leadership and communication skills widened our team’s understanding and empathy for the cross-cultural experience of the woman from very diverse backgrounds. Our Pipe Band team’s perspective for inclusion and acceptance greatly benefited us upon our return to Canada.”

“We partnered with Veza to create our Diversity & Inclusion Resource Hub and we couldn’t be happier with the result!  The team created a world-class resource library for companies and leaders who are looking to create change. Veza went above and beyond, even creating content at times, to fill in resource gaps. This is a collaborative, professional, and talented team!

Through our Diversity & Inclusion Tech Project, the Veza team has also provided diversity audits to tech companies. Through these audits, companies are receiving specific, practical and strategic recommendations for building more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Veza is helping to impact real change in our industry.”
