A large group of young people stand around a table. They are wearing lanyards and some are carrying clipboards. A woman on the right of the image is reaching out and pointing to someone or something to the left. The surface of the table emits a blue and white light that slightly illuminates the faces and torsos of the people gathered around it.

At the Museum, we value diversity and inclusion. We strive to provide a workplace where differences are accepted and celebrated.

Our team is made up of talented people who are passionate about their work. They come from different places and backgrounds. They bring different skills and ideas to the table. Together, we are advancing human rights.

We aspire to build a workforce that is representative of the community in which we live and serve. We encourage you to declare your Employment Equity status when applying. There are four designated diversity groups:

  • Women

  • Indigenous peoples

  • Persons with disabilities: persons who have a long-term or recurring physical, mental, sensory, psychiatric or learning impairment and who 

    • consider themselves to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment, or 

    • believe that an employer or potential employer is likely to consider them to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment.

    • This includes persons whose functional limitations owing to their impairment have been accommodated in their current job or workplace.

  • Members of visible minorities, including persons, other than Indigenous persons, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour.

Work in an inspirational environment

The Museum contains thousands of moving human rights stories, all housed within an architectural marvel. Each day brings something new to discover.

Work with an amazing team

Our team is made up of people from different places, backgrounds and experiences. When each of us brings a unique perspective, we come together to build something greater than the sum of our parts.
