Calgary Pride is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization with a mandate to advance visibility and inclusion for Calgary’s gender and sexually diverse communities.
Calgary Pride has several exciting leadership opportunities charged with creating meaningful impact within our LGBTQ2S+ community. As Calgary Pride continues its work toward anti-racist organizational change, our goal is to see stronger representation from Indigenous and visible minorities, and to set a better example of intersectional leadership. We are currently recruiting for volunteer Board Members with a diversity of voices, plus an awareness of community inclusion along with diverse professional and lived experiences, knowledge, and talents.
As a Board Member, you will be responsible for assisting in the development and delivery of Calgary Pride’s strategic direction. While the board continues a transition towards a governance board model, the next 12-18 months will require active participation from the board. You will be advocating for Calgary Pride’s mission within our city while actively supporting Calgary Pride’s annual Pride Parade, Festival, and other year-round programming.
Calgary Pride encourages applications from those with specific industry experience to fill specialized roles along with individuals who hold a passion for giving back to the community to fill Director at Large vacancies. Volunteer board members are not paid for their time but are reimbursed for reasonable expenses related to their duties on the board.
