The Maytree Foundation has a collection of resources regarding the value of a diverse leadership and the business case for diversity. On June 17 the participants of the Maytree Leadership Network were invited to the Toronto Reference Library having the chance to further reveal, develop, exchange and transform ideas about their collective vision for Toronto, discuss what the city should do about it, and think about what they would do personally – a Wordle , visualizing which words were most popular in the collective vision for the city, was also created.
Another tremendously useful diversity resource is the Environment & Diversity Project, a capacity-building initiative of the Sustainabillity network that is focusing on three levels of diversity capacity:
- Individuals – People (the Collaborative Organizations): building confidence, providing support for leadership (paid positions and a professional development )
- Organizations – The Collaborative Partner Organizations: ethno-cultural and Aboriginal diversity training, coaching and development/tracking of diversity action plans
- Sector – sector-wide training, networking and sharing, mini-grants, diversity conference,resource sharing tools, formative learning and evaluation process (documentation).
