Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Facilitator
We are looking to hire an experienced diversity educator who is looking for an opportunity to work at a unique boutique firm that specializes in equity leadership.
We primarily seek an equity educator who has significant experience working with Black and/or Indigenous communities to offer trainings based on our award-winning Deep Diversity® methodology*. Having said that, we are a small team and this full-time position requires you to be extremely flexible and do whatever it takes to get things done, from research and client management through to completing mundane office tasks. If this sounds of interest, read on!
- You already have 8-10 years experience under your belt offering adult-based education workshops/ trainings including on topics such as diversity, inclusion, anti-oppression and conflict resolution. You seek mentorship to transition into a mid-career professional with advanced facilitation skills and training knowledge.
- You have strong experience facilitating and working with Black and/or Indigenous communities.
- You are both a team player and a self-starter who wants to make a difference in the world by teaching people about what it means to build inclusive, equitable work environments.
- Your formal or informal education background already provides a macro view of the world that exposes the dynamics of systemic discrimination, social power and privilege. Words like colonialism, patriarchy, White Supremacy and intersectionality don’t frighten you.
- You are committed to developing your inner self and have some comfort discussing your strengths, limitations and triggers with team members in order to prevent, and resolve, inter-personal conflict. You also have a willingness to share select parts of your journey to support the learning of workshop participants.
- You have excellent written and verbal communication skills in order to manage relationships with colleagues and clients.
- You are (or will be) based in Toronto and have a full, unrestricted G driver’s license as well as access to a vehicle. You are comfortable travelling around Southern Ontario to meet clients for work.
