Anita Abraham, Ritesh Kotak, Mrinalini Menon and Pam Sethi, are among 27 of the region’s rising leaders, as the next cohort of DiverseCity Fellows selected by CivicAction, a coalition of civic leaders in the Toronto region.
According to a statement on its website CIvicAction said the leaders were selected who try to shape their community and provide it with the toolkit and network.
Abraham is executive director of Meal Exchange a non-profit organisation that works in over 40 communities to build sustainable food systems and fight poverty. Kotak is a cyber whiz for the Toronto Police and he wants to use the fellowship to help people have a systemic, positive impact in society.
Menon works as a talent sourcing manager at the Royal Bank of Canada and volunteers with the Royal Ontario Museum and Canadian Stage Company. Sethi has over 10 years experience in healthcare and works in health policy planning and strategic development with the Ontario government. In 2013 she co-founded Lean In Canada, a non-profit geared to creating a community for women to improve gender equality in the workplace.
