ABOUT THE POSITION
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.
TRANSformCulture is Pride Foundation’s public education, research, and advocacy program that seeks to shift culture through storytelling, community building, and outreach that is community led and developed. TRANSformCulture is grounded in developing, maintaining, and centering long-term relationships with communities—developing this work with individuals and groups on the ground who are supporting our communities.
Pride Foundation seeks a community-oriented and deeply embedded leader to lead our public education, research, and advocacy program, TRANSformCulture. Our next Director of Community Advocacy, Education, & Research (DCAER) will bring a strong background in working with and building meaningful relationships within BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex and gender diverse communities, have strong skills in research design and implementation, and a thorough understanding of what it takes to change systems and transform culture to truly keep our communities safe. The DCAER is a critical member of our leadership team, and is responsible for designing and implementing the breadth of TRANSformCulture’s work.
The DCAER reports to the CEO, serves on Pride Foundation’s Leadership Team, and leads the Village Council—a 25-person community advisory committee consisting of change agents from across the 5-State region. This is a full time, exempt position. Flexibility to work some evenings, weekends, and occasionally travel are necessary. This position is currently remote, and candidates should live in, or be willing to relocate to, one of the five Northwest states Pride Foundation serves. Staff members in the greater Puget Sound region will have the option to work out of our headquarters office in Seattle in the future once conditions of the pandemic make in-person work safe again.
Pride Foundation determines its staff salaries using the Washington Nonprofit Wage & Benefit Annual Survey. Each salary is based on the average of similar positions in organizations of comparable size and are competitive for the field. For this position, the salary range is $85,000-$90,000.
Excellent employer-paid benefits: medical (includes coverage of gender-confirming health services and procedures), dental, and vision coverage along with disability insurance, employer retirement account contribution, and option for employee to invest in an individual retirement account.
Pride Foundation has a 4-day, 32-hour work week, with the option for this position to be entirely remote (either set up to work from home or in co-working space), or to be based out of the Seattle headquarters. Candidates must reside within the 5-state region we work in, or be willing to relocate to the region.
