This section is where you'll find important resources, viewpoints and reports on why, and how, to think about diversifying your board.

Toronto has been called one of the most diverse cities in the world – but is this proud reality reflected on our arts boards and in our arts organizations? One of the most urgent challenges facing the arts in Toronto today is building vibrant organizations that speak to the rich mix of experiences and backgrounds in our diverse community. Volunteer board leaders can be a powerful force for change, bringing new ideas, approaches and energy to the table. 

We've compiled a series of articles, reports and resources for you and your board to explore. Click any of the links below, or access a roll-up of all the resources in one easy-to-print document. Click here to access the document: Diversity (PDF).
