AN INVITATION TO JOIN THE MONTRÉAL PRIDE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Montréal Pride is seeking new members for its Board of Directors to involve themselves in its governance, its activities and to participate in the work of its committees.
The mission of the Montréal Pride Festival is to support and promote local communities of the sexual and gender diversity while serving as a beacon of hope for the communities around the world who continue to battle injustice.
The event draws some 3.4 million local and international festivalgoers over eleven days of community and cultural activities that notably include a unique and diversified event experience, artistic performances, free shows, panel discussions and conferences, the Community Day and the parade.
Mandate: Each Board member serves for a two-year mandate that can be renewed on an annual basis.
Responsibilities: You will attend a minimum of three in-person or virtual meetings per month (Board and committee meetings, based on your interests), the Annual General Meeting of members and the Festival’s events. You may also take part in various working committees (governance, finance, human resources, technology and others, according to requirements.)
Desired Profile: Diversity of talent and knowledge: a good knowledge of the Montréal cultural community will be considered relevant as well as of Government Relations and Public Affairs, governance, accounting and finance, human resources and IT. Any other related field will be taken into account.
Diversity: We encourage Indigenous persons, People of Colour or persons from groups underrepresented in management positions to submit their application. We are committed to building an organisation that is as diversified as our festivalgoers are.
To apply, forward your curriculum vitae along with a short motivation letter to: [email protected] before or no later than June 15.
