The Opportunity: Chief Equity & People Officer

As Vancity shifts to realign its Human Resources function, the Chief Equity and People Officer (CEPO) will play a pivotal role in modernizing and decolonizing its operational approaches.

The ideal candidate will possess the following qualifications and experience:

  • Undergraduate degree, preferably in Human Resources Management, Organizational Development, or a related field; Master of Business Administration would be considered an asset.
  • Experience leading, developing and implementing a strategic framework to embed diversity, equity and inclusion, including anti-racism work, throughout an organization with the appropriate goals, performance measures, metrics and review processes.
  • The successful CEPO candidate will be a proven leader of high-performing teams within the financial services sector or within a similarly values-driven, complex organization that has undergone transformational change.
