Equity and Inclusion Advisor

The Edmonton Arts Council recognizes our relationship with the Indigenous people of Treaty 6 territories. In doing so, we renew our commitment to continuing our collective journey toward the ideals of peace, friendship, and understanding at the core of that agreement.

 The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) is a not-for-profit organization with a mandate to support and promote the arts community in Edmonton. The EAC works to increase the profile and involvement of arts and culture in all aspects of community life. Our programs and services are designed to realize Connections & Exchanges: A 10-Year Plan To Transform Arts and Heritage In Edmonton.

 The Equity and Inclusion Advisor provides expertise and operational support for the effective delivery of initiatives and activities that further the EAC’s commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA). The Advisor works across the EAC to increase awareness and sensitivity, enhancing accessibility and reducing barriers to EAC programs and services.  

 Your work supports the full scope of EAC initiatives, ensuring the EAC’s IDEA commitment is embedded in all plans. You will monitor EAC performance as progress is made towards the implementation of the EAC’s IDEA initiatives and you will implement targeted and organizational initiatives contributing to our performance measures. You are integral to increasing the awareness and sensitivity of our programs to the challenges and barriers facing artists and arts professionals in Edmonton.

A skilled facilitator, you can bring necessary perspectives to the table while creating a safe space for open and insightful dialogue that propels IDEA work forward.

You are passionate about diversity in the arts and cultural sector and excel at building relationships with artists and creatives from many communities and backgrounds. Your work will result in meaningful and lasting change for the EAC and Edmonton’s arts community.

Open until filled.
