We’ve been on hiatus for the past year, fundraising and planning. We’re so excited to receive funding and now have the ability to hire a part-time, contracted Program Coordinator. Our goal is to engage young women of colour in the creative and arts sector through mentorship workshops, but another path is to support our colleagues through paid employment. Our Program Coordinator position is looking for someone like you — sharing similar values around the intersection of feminism and diversity, and who energetic and organized. You’ll be part of team, joining our meetings, eating snacks with us, and promoting and planning our next cohort in 2019.
