Toronto, ON, May 22, 2013: A significant majority (79%) of Greater Toronto Area (GTA) residents sees diverse leadership as having a positive impact on the GTA’s ability to attract investment from other countries. Yet six out of ten GTA residents believe that this representative leadership is lacking in our city. Women are more likely than men to consider this an issue of concern (64% vs. 58%). The findings are in a DiverseCity/Nanos Research report released today, Public Opinion on Diverse GTA Leadership.
It’s been five years since the Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance (CivicAction) and Maytree came together to put the spotlight on leadership diversity. Since then DiverseCity’s six research reports have exposed a critical gap: our leaders – the decision-makers, influencers and role models – do not look like the rest of the city region. Now it’s time to find out what GTA residents think about this issue. On Wednesday, May 22, join DiverseCity at a special anniversary celebration hosted by the Canadian Club of Toronto as leading Canadian pollster Nik Nanos shares the findings of the first public opinion survey on leadership diversity.
Too many Torontonians believe they can have no impact on their community, let alone their city. We’ve been working to change that. On Wednesday, March 20, Maytree is bringing together community leaders, organizers and those interested in making change where they live for CollaborAction: Building Blocks Learning Exchange.
Toronto, ON, November 21, 2012: The report, Supplier Diversity in the GTA: Business Case and Best Practices, released today, finds that most organizations in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) are not actively seeking to spend money with companies owned by visible minorities.
On November 21, 2012, join Maytree and the Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance for the release of the latest DiverseCity Counts report – “Supplier Diversity in the GTA: Business Case and Best Practices.”
Toronto, September 25, 2012: On October 1-3, 2012, Maytree, along with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the BMW Group, will be hosting delegates from 20 international cities who are coming to Toronto to learn more about the DiverseCity onBoard program and how to adapt it to their city context.
Toronto, June 6, 2012: The report, Leadership Diversity in the Nonprofit Sector: Baby Steps, Big Strides, and Bold Stances, released today, finds that even in small amounts, leadership diversity contributes meaningfully to the performance of nonprofit boards.
