Emerging Leaders Network

The Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) is where you can find energetic and inspiring emerging leaders who motivate each other to take action. The diversity of the members is complemented by a single desire to make the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) the best and most prosperous place it can be.

Created in 2006, the network is 900+ rising leaders strong, including more than 130 DiverseCity Fellows alumni. Our members represent a wide range of sectors and industries across the GTHA and are managers, directors, and early executives from organizations such as RBC, Accenture, George Brown College, Infrastructure Ontario, KPMG, Region of Peel, Institute for Canadian Citizenship, IBM, TD Bank Group, and United Way.

The ELN is led by volunteer co-chairs Richard Wiltshire and Elisha Muskat, and an Executive Committee. Past co-chairs include Noreed Javed, Alexandra Stewart, Rob Drynan, Andrew Graham, Salima Rawji, Mitzie Hunter, and Donna Lindell.

ELN members contribute to the city-building efforts of CivicAction by serving on CivicAction’s Board of Directors, participating in CivicActon’s Steering Committee, attending Greater Toronto Summits and CivicAction Forums, and taking on leadership roles in CivicAction initiatives.
