Imanzi Kayitare was pleasantly surprised on a recent tour of the Abilities Centre in Whitby.
“I never would have thought there would be a centre like this out here,” said the Mississauga resident.
Mr. Kayitare was one of more than 30 rising leaders from CivicAction’s Emerging Leaders Network and DiverseCity Fellows program who were invited to take a look at the changing face of the region during a tour June 27.
CivicAction brings senior executives and rising leaders from all sectors to tackle challenges facing the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. The aim of the evening was to acquaint these future community builders with what Durham has to offer.
The idea for the event came from Judy Wityszyn, a member of the DiverseCity Fellows program which galvanizes rising leaders interested in urban issues and impacting change.
