Under the supervision of a Senior Manager in the office, the Consultant will facilitate office-level conversations in select offices to allow all employees to understand each other’s experiences better, and to increase overall awareness of these issues, especially of issues and behaviours such as unconscious bias and micro-aggressions. The conversations should be able to focus on the existing systematic and systemic exclusions, some of which are institutionalized, different ways in which these manifest and ideas on how to address challenges.
