Embark is a student-led not-for-profit located on the SFU campuses that catalyzes student sustainability journeys through our grant, advocacy, and student-designed programming. Our work is supported by the 35,000+ undergraduate and graduate student members that we represent.
Inclusivity Hiring Statement
At Embark, we strive to support staff in being themselves and exploring what that means within the context of our work. We do this by fostering a work culture that enables self-expression and exploration and honoring individuals’ understandings based on the combination of their background, claimed and unclaimed identities, and experiences.
This is important because we believe perspectives that forward multiple truths will strengthen sustainability solutions while challenging normative assumptions of who possesses knowledge and which approach is best. We assert that systems change requires various ways of thinking. If you share these values, we strongly encourage you to apply to be part of our team.
The Programs Manager is responsible for overseeing the management and development of all programming while supporting student-led events and initiatives. The Programs Manager approaches sustainability with an intersectional lens, and prioritizes justice, equity, decolonization, diversity, and inclusion (JEDDI) in their work.
The Programs Manager trains and supports volunteers and coordinators throughout the academic school year, providing opportunities for their personal and professional development. On an on-going basis, the Programs Manager recruits volunteers and seeks to involve them in areas of interest. As a team, Embark’s members contribute to advancing the organization’s priority areas of food systems change, climate action, and social sustainability.
The Programs Manager continually seeks opportunities to forge partnerships with campus and community partners that have common goals. Additionally, the Programs Manager designs and administers the evaluation of programs and events so that Embark can continually evolve to most effectively serve its members. This position reports to and works closely with Embark’s Executive Director, while collaborating regularly with the Design & Communications Manager and Gardens Coordinator.
In light of COVID-19, this position will be mostly virtual for the time being, with some in-person work for programs. This is subject to change, pending campus reopening and in accordance to Provincial Health Orders.
