Are you an employer looking to improve inclusion and diversity in your workplace?
The YWCA invites you to discover its most recent awareness-raising project.
“Where are you from?” is a virtual reality job interview from a new immigrant’s perspective.
Funded by the Bureau d’intégration des nouveaux arrivants à Montréal (BINAM), the project seeks to stimulate reflection among key actors in the domain of employment, as well as invite businesses and organizations to improve their practices in terms of ethno-cultural diversity.

Book a free screening-workshop:
Virtual reality experience
For who: The general public
Duration: Maximum 4 hrs (about 10 minutes per person)
Since the best way to understand someone else’s reality is to live it, we’ll set up our kiosk at a location of your choice to give your staff and clientele an immersive experience of what it’s like to be an immigrant looking for work.
Virtual Reality Experience + Workshop on Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
For who: Managers, human resources personnel or any other person involved in the hiring process and employee integration.
Duration: 3 hours
Group workshop for 6 to 12 people selected by the employer for their strategic role in relation to inclusive workplace practices. Following the viewing of the video by group participants, our trainers will facilitate an exchange on the themes raised by the virtual reality experience. An overview of best practices that favour the reception and integration of immigrants will be presented in order to strengthen strategies already in place. An information and resource guide aimed to help businesses and organizations evaluate and improve their ethno-cultural diversity practices will be provided to participating enterprises.
Where: We will come to your offices (on the Island of Montreal)
Equipment: We will bring 1 rollup, 4 virtual reality headsets and information and resource guides. We will need chairs for the viewings.
Cost: Free of charge
