The Government of Canada has launched a public appointments process for the position of Chairperson of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) Board of Governors.
IDRC is aiming to achieve gender parity and diversity on it Board of Governors by seeking to attract qualified Canadian candidates for the role of Chairperson, who will help to reflect Canada’s diversity in terms of linguistic and employment equity groups (i.e., women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities). I would be very grateful if you would share the Notice of Appointment Opportunity, with a particular emphasis on members of your networks and communities of practice who come from diverse communities.
