INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP & DECISION-MAKING
Our focus is to strengthen trusting relationships that institutions (including public, private, non-profit, etc.) have with Calgary’s diverse communities. Our diverse communities are valued as a strength.
Our research and analysis (outlined in the Preliminary Resilience Assessment), showed that:
Leads: The City of Calgary and the United Way of Calgary and Area
- Calgary’s under-represented, diverse communities faced challenges in developing strong relationships with all orders of government and other institutions.
- Diverse communities offer significant benefits such as global experience and education, different perspectives, unique ways of relationship-building and the ability to think and act differently when problem-solving.
- There is low representation of diverse communities in leadership roles, including elected positions.
- Diverse group members shared their experiences with the ‘glass ceiling’ and other barriers related to civic decision-making. They expressed that Calgary would benefit from their diverse leadership worldviews.
We listed the outcomes we hope to achieve for this focus area in the form below. There are one to five initiatives/actions listed to help achieve the outcome. The outcomes and initiatives/actions were developed in consultation with partners and stakeholders. We wanted to understand what you think of how important these outcomes are for Calgary.
