Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP)


Living equity in relationships and partnerships

Health Nexus and the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA) are pleased to partner on a two-year bilingual project to strengthen collaborative and equitable leadership in the non-profit sector —specifically in the context of partnerships and networks.

The project will share research, resources and learning opportunities to:

Increase knowledge and understanding of processes and policies that centre equity-seeking communities in leadership and decision-making.

Develop organizational skills to implement equitable leadership, based on promising practices from six partnerships/networks across Ontario.

Facilitate a culture shift which recognizes the need to examine and redistribute power and resources to achieve more collective and equitable practices.

Our Vision for Collaborative and Equitable Leadership

Equitable leadership takes into account that people have different lived experiences of:

  • power
  • access to resources
  • historical and current injustices
  • resistance and resilience

These differences shape the ways in which people participate in, make decisions about, and have control over their own lives and communities.

Equitable leadership practices will enhance our collaborative action to create change.
