Like what you see and want to be a part of the change making process? There are lots of ways you can get involved with the WHRC to help us create a future where girls, women and gender diverse folks can live equitably healthy lives. A few ongoing opportunities are listed below, but we encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter and/or social media channels for the most up to date information. 

Paid Part-Time Positions

We regularly hire students to support our Women's Health Blog, Women's Health Interrupted Podcast, communications and events. Have a look at the roles we've hired for in the past and keep an eye out for future postings. Applications typically open in April and August each year. Please note that due to funding restrictions we are only able to hire domestic UBC students at this time.
