Background & Mandate of the Organization
The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) intersectionally promotes diversity in gender identity, gender expression, and romantic and/or sexual orientation in all its forms on a national level through services in the areas of education, health, and advocacy. Our resources and programming can be used to uplift gender and sexual minorities, as well as give the tools to wider populations in building allyship. For more information, please visit our website at www.ccgsd-ccdgs.org.
The CCGSD strongly believes in equitable practices, and as such, strongly recommends that individuals of gender, ethnic and sexual minorities apply.
Summary Of Position
The Forum Coordinator is responsible for 25-35 regional LGBTQ+ youth conferences, forums and events across Ontario, in coordination with local community partners who co-organize day-long conferences with varying levels of involvement. This position involves reaching out to and/or collaborating with communities across Canada that have urgent need of diversity programming and workshops in regions where educators and youth require support, resources, and/or training. These conferences then become a collaboration between local, on the ground organizations with the CCGSD’s national resources, ensuring an event that is both unique to the region and yet up-to-date with the issues that are being faced on a wider scale. These conferences are not just about skill-building on an individual level, but creating sustainable, vibrant networks on a community level. This position is very dynamic and the Forum Coordinator will be primarily responsible for programming and event logistics management. In other words, there is a lot of detail involved in the forums, conferences and events we run here at the CCGSD and the Forum Coordinator must be motivated and able to multi-task, coordinating multiple conferences at the same time.
