|Our success and achievements over the years would not have been possible without the support of our incredible Board Members.
Looking ahead to 2024 and beyond, our focus will be to provide a space for the Canadian apparel industry to stand together, to collaborate and collectively advance and accelerate sustainable action. We would love for you to join us and lend your insight and leadership through our Board of Directors — an excellent opportunity to positively affect change, and support our mission.
We are at an exciting turning point in Canada, so if you would like to be at the forefront of this opportunity, Fashion Takes Action can help align your goals with your passions, and provide a fulfilling experience.
Deadline to Apply – Friday March 1, 2024
Positions available: 3
We are seeking 3 new board members each with a specific background and expertise.
1) Education – as we expand our youth education program across Canada and build global partnerships, we would like to have someone with a background in education join our Board. This could be a current or former teacher or administrator who is familiar with curriculum and school board operations.
2) Policy & Government Relations – the fashion industry is experiencing a number of policy changes, from anti-greenwashing to extended producer responsibility. As such, we are looking for someone with experience in public policy and who can help us strengthen our relationships with all levels of government in Canada.
3) Fundraising – as the needs of our stakeholders grow and change, we must also focus on our own growth. We are looking for someone with non-profit experience in fundraising, grant writing, sponsorship, corporate donations etc who can help us grow our capacity over the next 5 years.
All candidates should have an interest or passion for sustainable fashion and preference will be given to those who reside in Canada.
Please submit your CV and a cover letter outlining why you are interested in this position to firstname.lastname@example.org
Board positions are minimum 2 years and can be renewed for 2 additional terms (6 years max). Preference will be given to those with a minimum of 2 years previous board experience. Meetings are held virtually 10x/year and in EST.
We support and encourage diversity, equity and inclusion, and are committed to making our staff and Board positions accessible and welcoming to all – regardless of ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender or identity. It is important to us that our organizational governance is representative of the communities we serve, and that members of equity-seeking groups have a voice, and decision-making power. We therefore strongly encourage those who self-identify as racialized, Indigenous (First Nations, Metis, or Inuit), LGBTQ2+ and/or a person with a disability to apply for these positions.
We look forward to your application.
