At the Manitoba Legal Clinic for the Arts (Clinic), a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace is one where all employees and volunteers, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability, feels valued and respected. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity in all of our work and programs. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and ensure that all voices are valued and heard.
We recognize that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of many Indigenous Nations throughout Manitoba and in Canada. We are committed to modeling diversity and inclusion for those we serve, and to maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all. While we see Indigenous heritage as part of diversity and inclusion, we also recognize that Indigenous peoples have distinct history and distinct ongoing rights, title and governance rights. In all of our work, programs and relationships, we aim to acknowledge, recognize and learn about these rights and the different Indigenous peoples and Indigenous lands we are working within and to do our best to contribute to the ongoing journey of reconciliation in Canada.
