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 justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) leadership.

We primarily seek an equity educator who has significant experience with discussing and teaching equity concepts to offer trainings and some consulting 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. This position would ideally be based in Toronto, Canada but we are open to any North American applicants. 

About You

  • You already have over 5 years experience under your belt offering adult-based education workshops/ trainings including on topics such as diversity, inclusion, anti-oppression and conflict resolution. We will be mentoring you in our Deep Diversity methodology® and facilitation approach.
  • You have strong experience facilitating and working with various equity-seeking communities.
  • You have some experience with organizational development, organizational change or systems change processes (eg. strategic planning, organizational audit/ assessment, policy creation etc.)
  • 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 are familiar to 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.

Other Helpful Skills

  • Some independent consulting experience an asset.
