                                         SKETCH Statement of Inclusion 

SKETCH is committed to ensuring that members of traditionally marginalized and equity-seeking groups, from a broad range of communities, apply for positions within the organization. SKETCH is dedicated to taking proactive steps to overcome historical patterns of discrimination in our society which have created barriers of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, language, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression resulting in the denial of their full participation in society. We prioritize qualified applications from those who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color, a person with disabilities, women, queer, trans or non-binary persons, or any combination of these intersections. SKETCH recognizes that people from these communities are most affected by homelessness and poverty in Toronto. We encourage you to self-identify in your application.
