Reconciliation Coordinator

 

The Women’s Centre is a non-profit support and resource centre for women. Our mission is to be every woman’s place for support, connections and community. We offer a range of services delivered by volunteers within a community development model. In 2017, the Women's Centre connected with over 9,000 individuals looking for assistance, opportunities to connect and/or ways to affect change in their community. Of these, 27% of women visiting the space identified as Aboriginal, First Nations, Metis or Inuit. The Women's Centre of Calgary plans to develop and initiate a Reconciliation Process with women in the community. We are seeking a Reconciliation Coordinator to familiarize herself with the Women's Centre model, and build connections with local Indigenous leaders and serving agencies. She would host a series of conversations with Indigenous women in the community to gather suggestions and feedback on what Reconciliation could look like at the Centre and develop a strategic framework to guide future programming and ways of work.
