YWCA Hamilton and McMaster University Present the EXCLerator Project


November 7, 2017 at 1:04PM until February 28, 2018 at 1:04PM

This 2017 report is the second installment of the Women & Diversity EXCLerator Project, the first comprehensive investigation into diverse leadership representation in Hamilton and Halton. This report analyzes findings against our initial 2014 benchmark data, allowing us to evaluate progress and identify setbacks in women’s leadership trajectories across nine
employment sectors.
 
The 2017 EXCLerator project expands the scope in two key ways. First, this edition quantifies the racial diversity of Hamilton and Halton’s top leadership. Second, it adds a ‘youth sector’ to gain insight into the diversity of the regions’ youngest leaders. These additions are critical to understanding the differing experiences of ‘diverse’ leaders beyond the gender facet, and assessing the state of the leadership pipeline and activism in the struggle for gender and racial equity.
