The Loaded Ladle recognizes that with regards to people’s experiences and job qualifications, a ‘level playing field’ does not currently exist because of the structural injustices of our society. We recognize that the Loaded Ladle and the public face of the broader food justice movement in North America is predominantly white and cis-gendered. We also recognize that the people most affected in the struggle for food sovereignty are people from historically marginalized groups. For these reasons, The Loaded Ladle believes that employment equity is a necessary practice to challenge some of these injustices. The Loaded Ladle sees Employment Equity as a pro-active measure to prioritize hiring people from historically marginalized groups. In order to be considered for Employment Equity, we strongly encourage people to self-identify in their cover letter.
