Ideal Candidate:
You are someone who understands that administrative work is vital to institution building and considers no task too small or too nuanced. You understand that updating calendars and scheduling events is just as important as creating project budgets and strategizing action items. You’re willing to do it all, and step in on unanticipated tasks as well, because you understand that all are part of working toward the bigger picture of uplifting Indigenous women’s voices. You are a highly motivated, organized, self-starter with a deep connection to and/or interest in learning about Indigenous matrilineal and matrifocal lifeways. You are flexible, resilient, adaptable and capable of adjusting plans to accommodate unforeseen circumstances.
