Providence Healthcare Foundation welcomed 50 ‘Partners’ and guests from local businesses on October 27, 2011 for an informative “Diversity Session”, generously sponsored by RBC. We had a promising turnout of engaged community members at this educational networking event, which emphasized the benefits of hiring a diverse workforce. Our three panellists: Sultana Lalani (Adecco Employment Services), Manjeet Dhiman (ACCESS Employment), and Courtney Betty (Founder, Diversity Business Network), shared some valuable information about partnering with external providers who embrace and reflect the diversity of our city.
Providence Community Partners is a growing, dynamic program offering incredible value to businesses in the GTA, and is open to anyone looking to get involved in the community and network with potential vendors and clients. This forward-thinking program is targeting business professionals that reflect the diversity of Providence Healthcare’s local business community — politically, geographically and ethnically — and share a like-minded business philosophy that embraces philanthropy. Our Providence Community Partners cover a wide range of industries from various sectors, including health care, banking, education, media, accounting, and retail. Each year we offer five events featuring high profile speakers, including business health seminars, technology education sessions, and a post-budget breakfast with local politicians.
Providence Healthcare is a leading Toronto health care facility, specializing in rehabilitation for patients who have experienced strokes, orthopaedic surgery, or lower limb amputation, or who require specialized geriatric rehabilitation, assessment and treatment.
