Sierra Club of British Columbia Foundation (SCBC) is a non-profit environmental organization whose mission is to support people stewarding abundant ecosystems and a stable climate, while building resilient, equitable communities. Our overarching goal is to uplift grassroots-led change in response to the climate emergency and ecosystem collapse. To do this, we engage with and learn from diverse communities and knowledge systems, including communities most impacted by the ecological challenges we all face. In particular, we are committed to learning from the governance systems of the Indigenous Nations on whose territories we live and work. Learn more here.
Further, this is an opportunity to join a dynamic team in a growing organization that is in the early stages of implementing its new vision and strategic plan. We pay a living wage to all staff and are committed to justice, diversity, equity and inclusion in both our hiring practices and work environment. We encourage women, people of Indigenous ancestry, people of colour, LGBTQQIP2SA individuals and members of other diverse communities to apply for careers with our organization. We are committed to building and maintaining a work environment that is welcoming to people who bring other ways of seeing, knowing and communicating to our work.
