Leadership Development Programs

NEXT GENERATION OF CITY-BUILDERS 

Through the Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) and the DiverseCity Fellows program, CivicAction brings together civic-minded rising leaders and provides them with the tools and connections to take action on challenging regional issues. Our goals and priorities are to:

  1. Incubate high-impact projects & collaborations: Our emerging leaders have launched a number of innovative city-building projects, including Toronto HomecomingBetter BallotsProject Neutral, the Aboriginal Professionals Association of Canada, and the Pan Am Path.

  2. Build rising leaders’ capacity to lead change and expand the network: ELN members participate in networking events, gain exposure through monthly meetings, engage in thought-provoking dialogue on topical city-building issues, and have unparalleled access to the region’s most influential and respected thinkers and executives who share personal and professional insights with members.
  3. Deliver best-in-class leadership programming: ELN organizes a number of skill-building workshops – on topics like media training, public speaking, and government relations – throughout the year. The DiverseCity Fellows program provides intensive leadership training for 25 rising leaders each year (more information below).
