Summer position in Montreal, Quebec
Leading Change is part of a constellation of organizations including The Delphi Group, GLOBE Series, and EXCEL Partnership. Each of these organizations has its own mission, services and platforms, but we work together toward a common purpose: to achieve a sustainable, prosperous and socially just future in a generation. Leading Change believes leadership in the private, public, and plural sectors should reflect the people they serve. Our programs aim to play a role in helping to recognize the wealth of knowledge and opportunity that diversity brings to the environmental movement by connecting young leaders from typically underrepresented backgrounds to supportive peers and established leaders.
We value and are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace and programs. This commitment includes developing and implementing strategies to ensure the inclusion of persons from visible and non-visible minorities and persons with disabilities. We foster an inclusive workplace culture in which every individual feels welcome, respected, valued and supported at all stages of the employment life cycle.
The Education Program Coordinator will be supporting Leading Change’s Executive Director with the development and execution of Leading Change’s new virtual programs. A key project to support these and other events will be a guide and workshop materials to train young people who wish to support peers and participants experiencing unfair, unjust, or uncomfortable treatment in response to their identity. This is a full-time, summer position based in Montreal, Canada.
This position is funded through the Canada Summer Jobs program. Applicants must be aged between 15 and 30 and be legally entitled to work in Canada.
Start date: July 6, 2020
Salary: $20.00 hourly for 35 hours per week over 8 weeks
Location: Based in Montreal with option to work remotely as we monitor the evolving COVID-19 crisis
Leading Change values and encourages the contributions of individuals who identify as members of communities traditionally underrepresented in positions of leadership or power (black, Indigenous, persons with disability, visible minorities, LGBTQI2+). We recognize that structural barriers shape experiences and opportunities and take this into consideration with screening and selection decisions.
