We recognize that racism and colonialism – past and present – are contributors to water-quality degradation and impede our collective efforts to protect Lake Winnipeg. These same forces create barriers to employment for historically, persistently and systemically marginalized groups.
Effective environmental advocacy must be anti-racist and decolonial. LWF is committed to building diversity, equity and inclusion into our board, staff team and membership base.
We believe that a diverse team with unique perspectives and backgrounds makes us stronger. We encourage candidates to self-identify when applying for this position.
