Leading Social Justice Fellowship

A unique program to rebuild an equitable and inclusive city

It is time for collective action to address longstanding, interconnected social, health, housing, and climate justice issues, including Truth and Reconciliation and broader equity and anti-racism imperatives. Doing so requires leaders in all sectors to act collectively, challenging what we’ve come to accept as normal. This moment calls for courage and a different kind of leadership.

The Leading Social Justice Fellowship, co-presented by United Way Greater Toronto, the University of Toronto’s School of Cities, and Rotman Executive Programs is an innovative leadership development program for individuals from the public, private, and community sectors engaged in (or committed to) social justice transformation. It’s a key investment we are making in building the capacity of our region, and people like you, to solve the systemic social justice issues that stand in the way of so many being able to thrive and prosper in the GTA. If you are passionate about putting social justice at the center of your approach to leadership, this Fellowship is for you.

Because of the Leading Social Justice Fellowship I am a more confident community advocate and feel fortunate that I can now draw on an expansive network of like-minded professionals for support.
