Join our Board

We are recruiting three to four individuals to serve as board members. Joining our board of directors is a one-year commitment, with the possibility for extension. Board memberships take effect as of April 2016, and the expected time commitment is 1-2 meetings (2-4 hours per month), in addition to working group meetings as required.

While we encourage applications from all people who identify as women, we recognize the importance of a diverse leadership team, and will give preference to applications from Indigenous women, Francophone women, LGBTQ­ identified women, women of colour, immigrant women, and women with disabilities.

We are interested in a variety of skills and experiences, however, at this time, we are seeking women with expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Finance and accounting
  • Media and public relations
  • Fundraising, philanthropy, and sponsorship
  • Connections to multicultural communities and organizations
