Poor management and leadership
Policy Analyst (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 May 2019
Work-life balance is not something valued at the Native Women's Association of Canada. Very little supports for employees who value this. Inexperienced directors and high turnover makes it hard to accomplish good work.
There is very little job security, even though contracts are all "permanent full-time positions", there is a clause in the contracts that allow folks to be let go without cause.
The entire HR department quit to make a statement about how poorly staff are treated (In the spring of 2019). NWAC exploits young staff who are new to their careers to accomplish the work of the organization, but gives little respect back to them.
overtime without compensation, do not practice what they preach, treat staff who are Indigenous women or people of colour very poorly
