Community Advocacy, Research, and Education Senior Manager

Pride Foundation fuels transformational movements to advance equity and justice for LGBTQ+ people in all communities across the Northwest. We envision a world in which all LGBTQ+ people live safely and openly as our whole selves in the communities we call home.


Pride Foundation is the only community foundation by and for LGBTQ+ people and communities serving the Northwest region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Founded in 1985 during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Pride Foundation is the result of generations of leaders who brought simple but revolutionary values to our movement: the courage to truly see one another, the compassion to recognize our shared humanity, and the conviction to show up every day to protect one another. Pride Foundation has an operating budget of more than $6 million with 16 full time employees working from across the region we serve. Pride Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors with 17 members from across the five-state region with diverse professional and lived experiences.


As an organization and as individuals, we are committed to anti-racism, and strive to center racial equity and justice throughout our organization and all aspects of our programmatic work. Together, we are intentionally and actively building an internal culture that reflects this commitment, and an organization where our team members can thrive. All team members are a part of this work and are active participants in building our culture. Read more about the work culture we are building here and our 4 day work weeks here.



Pride Foundation seeks a deeply embedded community leader and an experienced facilitator to help grow and sustain our Department of CARE. The CARE Senior Manager will bring an understanding of research and data justice frameworks, and commitment to centering community members as leaders and decision-makers, and an understanding of the intertwined relationship between community, power-building, policy, and research. The CARE Senior Manager also brings a strong, intersectional, racial, and gender justice analysis to this work. This includes understanding the difference between mobilizing and organizing in community work.


The Senior Manager will work closely with the Director of CARE across all aspects of Pride Foundation’s Community Advocacy, Research, and Education work, as well as build collaborative relationships across our internal departments. This role also has a significant community building component to it and will require building strong relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders and groups across the Northwest.
