About

I am excited to apply for the Public Affairs Officer Position. You will find my extensive work experience as a policy analyst with the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) and volunteer experience with non-for-profit organizations has contributed to my knowledge base around diversity and equity issues and implementation.

I am confident that the skills I have acquired through a combination of work and academic experiences make me an ideal candidate for this position. I have enclosed my resume for your consideration. However, I would like to highlight some key strengths: • Excellent research and data analysis skills acquired through working on equity file at MCCSS • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to identify issues and trends pertaining to program delivery as exemplified through experience as a job developer and board member • Leadership and teamwork skills acquired while working with youth in multiple work positions, along with developing communication materials and promoting Employment Ontario programs • Superior ability to liaise with members of the community and develop stakeholder relations while cultivating employment opportunities for vulnerable clients • Exceptional experience in oral and written communication, developed through delivering presentations, reports, stakeholder analysis, and briefing notes in both work and academic settings As a policy analyst at MCCSS, a core focus of my work has been to develop policies around equity, diversity, and inclusion. At the early stages of this work, I have established and lead community engagement sessions with marginalized groups.
