Join the BIP team!

Summer is here, and that’s when a ton of activity happens in the BIP sphere! (Hey, that even rhymed!)

The project has taken on an incredible life of its own, almost, bringing together people from a ton of different backgrounds to bond over one thing they all have: a body. And since it’s been so successful, we’re ready to grow, and we need to do it sustainably.

I’ve posted some volunteer and (potentially) paid positions on the Work with BIP page, and here’s a run-down of some of the highlights:

Grants & Funding Officer

This person is going to make sure that BIP can keep going, afford to pay its staff, develop even more exciting projects and grow. This person’s job is sustainability, through and through!

Chapter Leader

BIP has been super successful on-line and locally in Ottawa, but we really want to expand to other regions as well. We’re looking for Chapter Leaders who are willing to start holding meetups in other towns across Canada and beyond, beginning in the Fall. If you’re a remote BIP community member and you’ve been hoping for more action in your area, this is your chance!

Assistant Editor

The summer is just too busy for Lia to do it all on her own. I need a hand with editing the content our writers submit and other content that we post on our on-line platforms and podcasts. If this sounds like a job for you, I’d love to hear from you.
