Executive Director - Job Competition Extended!

UPDATE, June 11th, 2024

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR JOB OPPORTUNITY

We are seeking a dynamic Executive Director who is committed to supporting both our Board and staff team in bringing our vision to life, and continuing to explore and lead decolonization efforts in our community. We offer a flexible employment space that is committed to feminism and anti oppression and making our values live through, not only the programs we run, but the workplace we operate.

WHERE WE ARE AT - A Bit of Background

Over the last three years the Women’s Centre has focused our efforts on strengthening internal systems, such as finance and onboarding, and rebuilding our partnerships and community relationships since the pandemic closed our doors and pivoted our programming.

The Board of Directors has begun strategic planning and has set a strong direction for our work over the next 3-5 years. The incoming Executive Director will be a part of this ongoing process and will step into a fresh mandate to deliver.

WHAT WE DO - An Overview of the Women’s Centre

The Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre has operated a drop-in and advocacy space for women identifying, and non-binary, folks in Whitehorse for nearly 50 years! In addition, we provide a variety of programs and services such as:

  • Community Kitchen
  • Women’s Advocate
  • Healthy Babies, Healthy Futures
  • Rural Pregnant Mom’s Suite
  • Mom’s and Kid’s Summer Rec. Program

We’ve just begun a Next Gen Men program in Yukon and have plans to start an All Genders Young Feminist Club and a Sexual Health Education Hub.

Together with partner agencies, we also organise two educational campaigns each year: Sexual Assault Prevention Month and 16 Days to End Gender-Based Violence.
