Call for Applicants--CivicAction’s DiverseCity Fellows

Deadline October 24, 2016

Now in its 8th year, CivicAction’s DiverseCity Fellows is an award-winning program for diverse rising leaders in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) who are interested in impacting change in their communities. The Fellowship came out of DiverseCity: The Greater Toronto Leadership Project, a partnership between Maytree and CivicAction, which identified the need for more diverse leadership to create a stronger and more prosperous region.

With a focus on inclusive leadership and driving impact, this free year-long program provides participants from all sectors and GTHA communities with opportunities for personal leadership development while growing a strong network of civic-minded peers across sectors. Past participants have noted that it helped further their leadership journey while also helping them contribute to their community in a meaningful way post-program.

The call for applications for the next cohort of DiverseCity Fellows will take place from September 19 to October 24, 2016 – with the full year program officially running from January to December 2017.
