Director of People Engagement & Learning
MakeWay builds partnerships and solutions to help nature and communities thrive together. We are made up of two legal charitable entities: MakeWay Charitable Society, a shared platform home to over 65 innovative community-led projects staffed by 150 change makers; and MakeWay Foundation where about 70 people are advancing place-based programs that support Indigenous-led solutions and conservation in the North, Pacific, Manitoba, and beyond via grant-making, funder collaboratives and other tools. Our people, projects, and partners are based across the country.
We are seeking an inspiring yet humble facilitative leader who can work across MakeWay to help our people develop and thrive in an increasingly complex environment. The Director of People, Development, Engagement, & Learning will work closely with the CEO to advance culture change toward delegated decision-making models. The Director will ensure we engage our employees and harness our learnings towards impact. They will integrate a diversity, inclusion, and equity lens across our organizational strategies. They will balance all the approaches needed to foster adaptive leaders on one hand while deftly handling the technical needs for employee wellness and human resource management on the other.
