Funding received in 2017 to develop 4 Inclusion, Equity and Diversity in Governance online training modules in English and French. Project is a partnership between AOHC and Ryerson University Chang School’s Diversity OnBoard as well as Health Nexus.

Modules developed by project coordinator, Anu Radha Verma with input from all partner organizations and AOHC members including rural and urban board members, Executive Directors and members from the anti-black racism, 

LGBT and Francophone moral owner groups.

Each online module includes practical tools and resources including a common evidence-based Inclusive Leadership in Governance Framework. Modules are approximately 25 minutes in length can be taken individually or as a board.
