Sexual and Gender Diversity Program Coordinator
MacEwan Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity
Faculty of Health and Community Studies

MacEwan University inspires students with a powerful combination of academic excellence and personal learning experiences – ours is a connected culture that focuses on learner-centered teaching, and on providing opportunities for students to grow and achieve.

The university provides a transformative education in a creative, collaborative and supportive learning environment. 19,000 full- and part-time students are enrolled in more than 65 programs: four-year undergraduate degrees, applied degrees, university transfer programs and one- and two-year diploma and certificates. Additional offerings include university preparation, English as an Additional Language, professional and personal development courses and workshops, corporate training and the Conservatory of Music.

The MacEwan Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity (CSGD) serves as a dynamic interdisciplinary hub to foster community-engaged research, teaching, and an inclusive learning environment in support of sexual and gender minorities. The Centre provides leadership and strategic management of resources to support student and faculty engagement, professional development, knowledge mobilization, creative activities, and scholarly excellence.

The CSGD invites applications for a full-time program coordinator position.  The successful candidate will serve as the first point of contact for University members seeking sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression (SOGIE) related needs, concerns, and information. The Program Coordinator will work under the direction of the Executive Director, and closely with the Office of Human Rights, to coordinate inclusive programming, services, and outreach activities. The Program Coordinator will also actively contribute to educational initiatives, including professional development, strategic program development, event management (e.g., Pride Week), and lead activities to strengthen MacEwan's response to sexual & gender diversity.

Candidates will have demonstrated knowledge of research, programs, and trends impacting SOGIE issues and campus-based supports and services, including working with marginalized and vulnerable populations. A strong intersectional understanding of SOGIE identities and experiences and ability to operationalize programming and services is required. Successful candidates will also have excellent organizational and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work effectively both independently and directly with a diverse-range of faculty, staff, and students.

Preferred candidates will, at a minimum, hold a Bachelor’s degree, diploma, or 5-7 years’ experience working on sexual and gender minority issues in a post-secondary environment.
