On November 6, 2013, join Maytree, the Greater Toronto CivicAction
Alliance (CivicAction) and Mount Sinai Hospital for the release of the
latest DiverseCity Counts report - "A Snapshot of Diverse Leadership in
the Health Care Sector."
TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - The eighth DiverseCity Counts report looks
at health care institutions in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). In
partnership with Mount Sinai Hospital, we examine leadership diversity
in Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), hospitals, and Community
Care Access Centres (CCACs) in the GTA. While past Counts reports have
focused solely on visible minorities, this edition broadens the scope
of diversity to include sex/gender identity, visible minorities,
disability, and sexual orientation.
Join us to hear how the health care sector is doing. The DiverseCity
Counts release will take place at HealthAchieve, the signature conference and exhibition of the Ontario Hospital
