Here’s how the 2020 Executive Leadership participants were selected:

Business / Arts welcomed and encouraged applications from all qualified individuals. We were particularly interested in and encouraged to receive applications from equity-seeking communities, including women, racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions.

Each of the applications received was reviewed by a jury committee, which included the mentors for the 2020 Executive Leadership program. Diversity and inclusion were among the criteria used to evaluate each application.

For this inaugural year, 10 participants across Canada were selected for the program.
