About 75 per cent of the HR workforce is women but one HRD says the industry just needs a little rebranding to balance things out.

    Here, in Québec, the true problem is not male-female. A lot of progress and achievement has been obtained by women. The real problem is that HR is still majoritary White and Francophone, and they hire and evaluate from this perspective. So, they are hiring white and francophone-québécoises candidats besides their demographic presence. So minorities and immigrants have higher unemployement rates than not only quebecois whites and francophones, but than all others canadians provinces! White hire white, quebecois hire quebecois. That a social big problem. The commission Bouchard-Taylor has pointed this problem, and they talked about the francophones non-québécoises, specially north-africans, that have higher unemployement rates that even other minorities non-francophiones. They said that the only plausible explanation is discrinmination.
