DiversityToronto Project Launched
Maytree and the Toronto City Summit Alliance today announced the first wave of over 100 partners that have committed their support to «DiverseCity: The Greater Toronto Leadership Project». Partners include private, non-profit and public organizations that are committed to more diverse leadership in the Greater Toronto Area.
Over 600 CEOs and other civic leaders gathered today for a sold-out Canadian Club luncheon to discuss the social and economic benefits of diverse leadership and the strategies required to enable a new generation of diverse leaders to emerge.
«It is our goal that, over the next three years, 1000 new diverse leaders will be identified and helped to move into positions of leadership and influence,” says Ratna Omidvar, President, Maytree. «Ultimately our city will benefit from the competitive advantage diverse leaders bring to the public, private and non-profit sectors.»immigrants, leadership positions, Public Engagement, toronto, visible minority
