Leading Social Justice Fellowship

A unique program to rebuild an equitable and inclusive city

The pandemic, systemic racism, and climate change have disproportionately impacted those made vulnerable by systemic barriers in our communities. Social justice movements including Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, Idle No More, and Fridays for Future have shone a spotlight on social inequities, and captured the imagination and will of many across the GTA to learn and do more. This moment calls for courage and a different kind of leadership.

The Leading Social Justice Fellowship, co-created by United Way Greater Toronto and the University of Toronto’s School of Cities, is an innovative, new leadership development pilot for individuals from the public, private, and community sectors who want to rebuild an equitable and inclusive city. It’s the next important investment we are making in building the capacity of our region, and people like you, to solve the systemic social issues that stand in the way of so many being able to build a good life in the GTA. If you are passionate about putting social justice at the centre of your approach to leadership, this Fellowship is for you.
