DiverseCity Counts features research that studies the levels and impact of diversity in leadership. It sheds light on the representation of visible minorities and under-represented immigrants across sectors and reveals to us where progress is being made and where we’re falling behind.
- DiverseCity Counts 8 This research, the eighth report in our DiverseCity Counts series, is conducted by Dr. Samir Sinha of Mount Sinai Hospital and the University Health Network Hospitals. It examines diversity on boards and in senior management of health care institutions in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Specifically, we look at local health integration networks (LHINs), hospitals, and community care access centres (CCACs). While past reports have focused on visible minorities, this edition broadens the scope of diversity to include sex/gender identity, visible minorities, disability, and sexual orientation.
