2019 Diversity Internship Program in Human Resources & Equity

Date: March 6, 2019
To: Divisional HR Offices; Division of Human Resources & Equity
From: Erin Jackson, Chief Human Resources Officer

 

Dear colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Diversity Internship Program in Human Resources & Equity. This past year, the UTSC HR Divisional Office hosted Twanna Lewis as their Diversity Intern. I look forward to supporting other HR teams who are interested in welcoming this year’s new talented graduate to the HR community and to the University of Toronto.

Program Overview

The Diversity Internship Program will provide a one-year paid position for recent human resources graduates who self-identity as Aboriginal / Indigenous Persons (North America), Racialized Persons / Persons of Colour, and/or Persons with a Disability.

Divisional HR Offices must apply to host a placement, and if successful, are provided central funding (up to 50% of the FTE) for an internship position for up to one year.

Interns will be hired on a term basis into an excluded Human Resources staff position, and will be paid no less than the Hiring Rate on the appropriate salary range for a similar excluded human resources position.

I have attached more information about our Diversity Internship Program for your information as well as the placement application form and a copy of the job description for last year’s Diversity Internship.

All placement applications are due by March 31, 2019. Please submit them to wuwu.ugbeye@utoronto.ca.

If you have any questions about internships in general or the Diversity Internship Program in Human Resources & Equity, please feel free to contact me directly.
