This research project explores the representation of visible minorities
in senior leadership roles and executive positions in Metro Vancouver
across several sectors, including: elected offices, school districts, post
secondary institutions, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, local
governments, police detachments and the corporate sector. The research
method and approach is modeled after a similar study completed by Ryerson
University's Diversity Institute in Management & Technology, titled
DiverseCity Counts: A Snapshot of Diversity in the Greater Toronto Area.
The goal of this project is to produce a replicable study of diversity in
leadership in Metro Vancouver. The intent is that the results from this
year's study will set the baseline, and that further studies will be able to
monitor and report on changes in the level of diversity in leadership in Metro
The results of the study
will be discussed this afternoon at the Vancouver Public Library, in Alice MacKay room, 1-4 pm.
