Todays Canadian Muslim Community is rich and multifaceted, boasting a large population of individuals belonging to diverse groups. MAX as an organization, is committed to the principles of respect, value and inclusion of all individuals regardless of their ethnic origin, gender, age, physical ability and education.
MAX’s commitment to diversity is applied across our four main areas of operation- Awards, Scholarships, Mentorship, MAX Gala; and incorporated into all our internal and external relationships.
For MAX Awards and Scholarships, this translates to ensuring outreach efforts to promote the awards nominations and scholarship applications are aimed at individuals representing a diverse mix. Furthermore, to create a diverse and representative panel of judges for each award and scholarship. For MAX Mentors, this means encouraging mentor and mentee applications from a cross section of the Canadian Muslim diaspora representing a variety of industries. And finally for MAX Gala, the night that brings together all the different areas of MAX, to strive to have an audience that imbibes the organization’s values of inclusion and diversity.
MAX (Muslim Awards for Excellence) is committed to diversity and recognises the multivalence of identities that make up the Muslim community and its allies including race, gender and the differently abled. Throughout the organization, including all volunteer recruitment efforts, we strive to create a climate of respect, fairness and cooperation between all individuals.
