The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is one of the most diverse regions in Canada, with visible minorities and under-represented immigrant communities comprising an increasing percentage of our population. Agencies, boards and commissions and voluntary organizations deliver a wide range of essential services and programs to its residents. Yet there is a disconnect between the leadership of these organizations and institutions and the population of the region. DiverseCity onBoard directly addresses this challenge with a deliberate strategy to effect change by:
- Connecting qualified candidates from visible minority and under-represented immigrant communities to the governance bodies of agencies, boards and commissions and voluntary organizations in the GTA; and
- Working with public institutions and voluntary organizations to promote board recruitment and appointment processes that reflect the GTA’s diverse population.
