Canadian Women’s Foundation / Aftermetoo Partnership

Project Manager Contract Position

 

Canadian Women’s Foundation

 

The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a national leader in the movement for gender equality in Canada. Through funding, research, advocacy, and knowledge sharing, the Foundation works to achieve systemic change that includes all women. By supporting community programs, the Foundation empowers women and girls to move themselves out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.

Aftermetoo

Whether developing web-based resources to help workers understand their legal rights, connecting survivors with vital supports, challenging outdated employment policies, or providing community-based education and training opportunities, our projects aim to transform workplace culture and reduce the barriers that make it difficult to access justice—especially for the most vulnerable workers. We intend to generate a more empowered workforce, where leaders are held accountable, and workers’ rights are protected. Concrete change. No exceptions.

Aftermetoo is developing a website which will include 118 guides describing legal options for people experiencing sexual harassment at work in Canada. As project lead for the guides, you will be responsible for shepherding the guides through a multi-stage editorial development pipeline that includes research, drafting, editing, specialist legal review, translation, and proofreading. This role requires the ability to coordinate the work of others, as well as strong organizational skills.
