COVID-19 Response

Ecotrust recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately negative impacts on Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, immigrants, parents, caregivers, frontline workers, and others. While this is a full time position, Ecotrust offers the flexibility necessary to manage COVID-19 constraints including flexible schedules, working remotely, and use of paid sick leave for caregivers and those directly affected by COVID-19. Ecotrust recognizes these are unprecedented times and wants to remove any barriers that would prevent anyone disproportionately affected by the pandemic from applying.
