DiverseCity onBoard Program

Pillar Nonprofit Network is excited to lead the DiverseCity onBoard provincial program funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The DiverseCity onBoard program offers board matching as well as governance training to ensure that qualified candidates from visible minority and under-represented groups are not excluded from positions of decision-making, and influence.

Ontario’s urban centers are increasingly diverse, attracting many of the 250,000 immigrants to Canada each year. However Ontario’s leadership tables do not reflect this demographic shift. This Ontario collaborative will seek, collectively, to make tangible and measurable change to the face of leadership in four of Ontario’s largest and most diverse cities - Hamilton, Toronto, London, and Ottawa - by connecting qualified visible minorities and under-represented immigrants to agencies, boards, and commissions in the public and nonprofit sectors.

This program began in Toronto sponsored by the Maytree Foundation in 2006 and is now housed at the Global Diversity Exchange within the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University.
