Announcing the Workplace One Alliance Grant

Workplace One is committed to forming alliances with and supporting BIPOC-owned businesses within our community as well as our diverse employees and network. At Workplace One, our strength is providing best-in-class, fully-serviced, flexible office experiences and solutions, designed and managed for professionals, by professionals. We are a place for community, opportunity and growth.

Over the past year we as an organization have opened the conversation about diversity, race, and privilege within the workplace. Questions that are raised in these conversations don’t usually have a yes or no answer — but we hope by starting the conversation we can help affect positive change. So, in conjunction with Black History Month, we are proud to announce the Workplace One Alliance Grant.

The Workplace One Alliance Grant will award a BIPOC-owned company a 6-month membership at one of our work centres, providing a positive, professional and well-serviced office space and community for the recipient. We will work together with recipients to promote and encourage their unique company’s growth and development while promoting equality and visibility of people of colour as well as other vulnerable populations. This will be an annual, ongoing grant program.

The Workplace One Alliance Grant has a mission to encourage and support the pursuit of entrepreneurship, business and professional excellence, by facilitating the access to premium office solutions, other established businesses, and resources.

For the purpose of this grant, we define a Business as an organization or enterprising entity engaged in commercial, industrial, or professional activities. Businesses can be for-profit entities or they can be non-profit organizations that operate to fulfill a charitable mission or further a social cause.

Stay tuned for more exciting details on the Workplace One Alliance Grant. We will be accepting submissions in Spring 2021.
