Grounded in principles of Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression, we recognize and encourage applications from communities that are further marginalized in employment opportunities, including: Indigenous people, people of African/Caribbean/Black descent, people of colour, Trans-feminine people, people living with disabilities, people with experiences of migration, and people who have experiences of poverty. We particularly welcome applicants from these communities who are youth (18 to 29). Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in their cover letters or one-page statements, which will be kept confidential.
