About Toronto Metropolitan
At the intersection of mind and action, Toronto Metropolitan University is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.
We welcome those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
In April 2022, the university announced our new name of Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach. Learn more about our next chapter.
Our mission is to accelerate inclusive economic growth for all in Canada by advancing careers, businesses and communities.
We do this by connecting people, businesses and organizations to opportunity through our intelligent matching technology, developed within the DMZ ecosystem at Ryerson University.
As the Manager, EDI Education and Initiatives, you will lead and facilitate Magnet-wide equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) initiatives, develop capacity within the department for strategic and tactical thinking and planning with an EDI lens. You will collaborate with the Office of the Vice President Equity and Community Inclusion (OVPECI) and external community partners on EDI strategy implementation, developing and implementing initiatives, activities and resources for staff and partners relating to equity, diversity, inclusion, anti-racism, anti-Black, anti-Asian and anti-Indigenous racism, anti-oppression, Indigenous pedagogies, social justice, human rights and accessibility. You will identify external and internal opportunities for change at systemic and institutional levels.
We encourage all First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples or Indigenous peoples of North America, to self-identify in their applications and also reach out to Tracey King, Indigenous Human Resources Lead for support during the selection process.
As part of the selection process, candidates may be required to complete an occupational assessment.
