From the job posting:

The Director of Learning Networks will be part of the leadership team at IONS and will be integral in shaping the strategic direction of the organization. We are conscious that the current makeup of our leadership team isn’t as reflective of the diversity that exists across the IONS team and Board.

With this in mind, we are committed to welcoming a leader with an intersectional lens and lived experience from an equity deserving community to help guide our work in building capacity in the Community Impact Sector.

In particular, we are interested in working with someone who identifies as Indigenous, Black, or Racialized and who holds a race-informed justice and equity lens. We recognize the prevalence of white leadership in the Community Impact Sector and are seeking to diversify our leadership team to help transform our work and better serve our community. We are likewise committed to ensuring that this leader is supported, their perspectives are valued, and that space is created for them to shape how we work. We are doing this by regularly reflecting on our personal and organizational practices for justice and equity, receiving anti-oppressive conflict management trainingand listening to and being guided by our valued partnerships and networks in various communities.  

We also encourage you to self-identify in your application if you are a member of additional equity-deserving groups, such as the 2SLGBTQIA+ community or a person with a disability. If you are a member of one or more of these equity-deserving groups, we encourage you to self-identify in your cover letter and/or resume so that we may weigh your application appropriately.
