We are providing a unique job opportunity – we are looking for someone to help us assess our book collection for bias and racialized content. We don’t want to remove books (but we will if a good case can be made) but we want to add labels and information on older titles which may be culturally insensitive.
Preference will be given to someone who can provide an authentic voice.
This position will be best suited to someone in Indigenous Studies or in education.
Requires creating an account with Young Canada Works
