The York Region District School Board (YRDSB) believes in giving each and every applicant an equal opportunity to succeed on their own merit and we strive to hire staff that reflect and support the diverse perspectives, experiences and needs of students and communities. We remain committed to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion in our living, learning and work environments.  We know that diversity underpins excellence, and that we all share responsibility for creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive Board-community.  Therefore, in pursuit of the Board’s values, we seek members who will work respectfully and constructively with differences and across the organizational hierarchy in actualizing the Board’s priorities, goals and principles outlined in the Director’s Action Plan.

We actively encourage applications from members of groups with historical and/or current barriers to sovereignty, equity, including, but not limited to:

At YRDSB, we recognize that many of these identities intersect and therefore, equity, diversity and inclusion can be complex.  We value and respect the contributions that each person brings to enriching the Board and are committed to ensuring full and equal participation for all in the communities that we serve.
