Members of the Centre for Leadership & Diversity (CLD) include faculty from the Department of Leadership, Higher & Adult Education (LHAE), OISE and other universities, as well as students, practitioners, researchers, and policymakers.

There are two categories of membership: core and affiliated. Many of the core members are from OISE and include both faculty and students across the Greater Toronto Area. We continue to recruit affiliated members from school systems, other universities, and other education stakeholders and internationally.
