Our leadership search continues, with some big updates!

We’d like to update you on our leadership transition journey! 

We have extended the application deadlines and increased the compensation in the search for our new Executive Director, as well as the CEO to launch our new social enterprise. 

After conducting the first phase of outreach and speaking with several impressive candidates, we have received signals that in order to fill these dynamic positions, more incentive and outreach is required.

In making this decision, our main goal has remained unchanged: to find two new leaders to join our team and serve this community’s work - a mission that is more important than ever in these unprecedented times. 

A whole community effort is going to be required to find the right people for these roles. Please consider applying, or forward these opportunities to well-qualified candidates:

We will consider applications on a rolling basis and early applications are encouraged. We will update the pages for each position on our website once these positions have been filled. 

For a full backstory on our leadership transition story, please check out this blog post.

Thank you for sharing these postings and we can’t wait to update you on who will be joining Iron & Earth during our next stage of growth! 

In hope, action and gratitude, 

The team at Iron & Earth


P.S - We have just hired our amazing new National Chapter Director and are excited to introduce them soon, stay tuned!

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
