Queer Joy Collective Internship Program 2024

 

REMOTE OPPORTUNITY

Mission

Queer Joy Collective's work centers on community-based resilience building through positive expression.

About Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is the world’s largest LGBT organization of any kind. In 10 locations across Los Angeles, the Center’s nearly 800 employees and hundreds of volunteers offer programs, services, and global advocacy that span four broad categories: Health, Social Services and Housing, Culture and Education, and Leadership and Advocacy. The Center is an unstoppable force in the fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world.

The Center’s flagship Anita May Rosenstein Campus in the heart of Hollywood offers housing, legal, social, cultural, and educational services, with unique programs for seniors, families, youth, and the transgender community. Youth services include emergency, transitional, and independent housing, a drop-in center, and comprehensive education and employment programs. Senior services include more than 200 affordable apartments, food assistance, employment support, educational and recreational programming, and outreach.  

A Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) since 2013, the Center’s healthcare services include one of the first medical programs for people living with HIV and AIDS; HIV and STI testing; a full range of PrEP and PEP services; as well as HIV education, prevention, and outreach programs. The Center also provides comprehensive healthcare to the transgender community, gynecological and pelvic care, fertility, hormone balancing, and well-woman care. Additionally, the Center operates a full-service pharmacy.

The Center fights to advance civil rights and freedoms for LGBTQ people domestically and internationally through education, advocacy, and community organizing. They advocate for policies and funding that advance the health and wellness of the diverse LGBTQ community. To build a stronger LGBTQ community, they provide leadership development programs for activists and technical assistance for LGBTQ organizations everywhere.

A team of staff and volunteer attorneys, law students, and paralegals serve the legal needs of LGBTQ people with a special focus on survivors of violence, undocumented immigrants, the transgender community, and youth. They also provide cultural competency trainings and workshops for institutions and other providers.

 

A full slate of cultural and educational programming is offered at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza. The facility includes a 200-seat theater, a smaller black-box theater, an art gallery, and rooms for meetings and classes.

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center continued to provide essential first-responder services where possible, shifted programs to virtual, and developed new programs such as the Pride Pantry food bank. Last year, in response to the nationwide MPX (monkeypox) crisis, the Center led vaccination and testing efforts in Los Angeles and collaborated with local and national organizations for increased state and federal funding to combat the public health emergency.

Sacramento LGBT Community Center

 

About the Sacramento LGBT Community Center

 

In 1978, nine years after the historic Stonewall Riots, the Center was first incorporated as a special assistance program called the Lambda Community Fund. For more than 30 years, the Center operated almost entirely on the generosity of community volunteers who offered assistance to those in need and a place to find community. Over the last decade, the Center developed more robust programs and services to meet those needs, hired professional staff, and engaged significant public and private funding to support the community.

 

Now, the Sacramento LGBT Community Center has become one of the region’s largest nonprofits, reaching more LGBTQ+ people than any organization in Northern California. Operating in four locations, the Center provides programs and services spanning three broad categories: Health and Wellness, Advocacy, and Community Building.

 

Health and wellness services include HIV/STD Testing and Prevention, PrEP Navigation, Counseling Services, Sexual Health Education, Gender Affirming Care Services, Harm Reduction, Medication Assisted Treatment navigation (MAT), Support Groups, and more.

 

The Center’s Q-Spot Youth Program offers a brave space for youth ages 13-24 to receive social and emotional support through mental health respite, peer mentorship, and support groups. The Q-Spot also offers life skills workshops, youth-centered advocacy, and events such as Q-Prom.

 

The Center’s housing services include homelessness prevention, a 14-bed Short-term Transitional Emergency Program (STEP) 90-day low-barrier youth shelter, and a six-bed Transitional Living Program (TLP) where clients can stay for up to 24 months as they prepare for independent self-reliant living, and transition to more permanent housing. Both programs serve 18–24-year-old youth and include case management, housing, meals, clothing, transportation assistance, and access to wrap-around services including counseling, education and employment assistance, life skills workshops, and the establishment of a support system that can be maintained upon exiting the program.

 

In addition to providing a safe haven, the Center serves as an advocate for equity and social justice. Advocacy programs include legal aid through community partnerships, support services for community members who have been victims of bias or hate-related incidents, an outreach and training institute, Queer Voices (a performance-based ensemble), and public policy and community organizing.

 

The Center is host to various community-building initiatives including the annual Sacramento Pride Festival & March, Q-Prom (a fun-filled evening for LGBTQ+ youth and allies), and Mama’s Makin’ Bacon Drag Brunch (the largest drag brunch extravaganza in Sacramento), Chosen Family Feast (a shared community meal on Thanksgiving), World Aids Day, and dozens of others throughout the year.

Our vision is to create a Center and Center culture where every person feels and knows that they are welcomed, valued, and supported. As the beacon for our regional LGBTQ community, we actively recommit to being a more vibrant, bold, innovative, safe, and modern center each day than the day before. The Center is sex-positive and provides advocacy and critical health and social support services to support our community members through all stages of life, focusing on our deeply held values of equity, social justice, and client-centered, trauma-informed care.

 

The Center currently has over 100 staff working at soon to be nine facilities across San Diego County and is led by a 13-member board of directors, overseeing an annual operating budget of $13.5M.

FULL-TIME JOB VACANCY

We’re comprised of over 600 staff in more than 50 countries.

Our mission is as urgent as it has ever been, and it faces complex new challenges. We must contend with the failures of governments to meet their obligations on water, land, education, and food. We must respond to conflict and crisis on an extraordinary scale, and we must confront the persistence of repression around the world. Climate change, the resurgence of authoritarian populism, rapidly advancing technologies, and the effects of deep inequality all compound these threats to rights. Innovation, efficiency, and diversity are critical to our success in meeting these challenges, and to delivering sustained impact.

Job Description

The Executive Director Opportunity 
  • Following a highly successful nine-year tenure from GLAD’s previous Executive Director (ED), we are searching for our next leader during a momentous time in our movement’s and nation’s history. The new ED will join an organization with stable finances, dedicated multigenerational staff, strong fundraising headwinds, and solid plans for organizational growth and sustainability. To support a successful transition, GLAD has hired an experienced Interim Executive Director, Richard Burns, to prepare the organization for new leadership and provide our next ED with the transition and onboarding support critical to successfully move the organization forward. 
  • GLAD has always been a frontline responder in the battle for LGBTQ+ rights—now, we need a trailblazing ED to lead the charge. As legislative attacks threaten to roll back protections on our community, we seek a dynamic visionary to lead our $5M+ organization and grow our capacity, financial resources, impact, scale, and presence.
  • As a key public-facing representative of GLAD’s mission, values, and work, the next ED will lead a powerhouse team of 35+ staff and interns, including a Legal Team comprised of some of the nation’s most highly regarded LGBTQ+ and human rights litigators. The next ED will join this historic group of leaders and pioneers in defending our hard-won victories, spearheading bold new initiatives, and continuing our relentless pursuit of LGBTQ+ equality at a critical juncture for the movement.

Reporting to a committed Board of Directors, the ED serves as GLAD’s chief ambassador, fundraiser, and spokesperson, working in close partnership with movement partners, funders, and other key stakeholders to amplify our voice, ignite change, and fight for every member of our community. The ED will provide equitable leadership to deepen and extend our coalition of allies, partners, and co-conspirators; rally support from every corner; secure new funding to fuel our planned growth; and grow an inclusive culture in which everyone can thrive.

This is more than just a job—it’s an opportunity to help a nationally renowned organization grow its impact at a critical moment for our community. As we rally the movement, the ED will play a crucial role in spearheading GLAD’s current strategic priorities, which include:

  • Expanding and deepening GLAD’s national impact and presence.
  • Growing our legal capacity.
  • Ensuring an equitable and inclusive workplace.
  • Further building a hybrid workspace for greater, more flexible online collaboration.

The Executive Director’s key responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

Strategy & Leadership 
  • Engage the staff, Board of Directors, and other key stakeholders in advancing a shared vision and direction for GLAD.
  • Create short- and long-term plans to implement GLAD’s current strategic priorities that create shared accountability and clear milestones.
  • Pursue, steward, and secure strategic relationships and partnerships that strengthen GLAD’s reputation, visibility, and impact.
  • Deepen diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and antiracism across all parts of the organization to foster an inclusive, equity-forward culture.
  • Serve as an external leader in the national movement, pursuing opportunities for collective impact and advancing a shared vision.
Funding & Resource Development
  • Serve as a persuasive and inspirational major gifts fundraiser for GLAD, working in collaboration with the Development Team and Board Development Committee to set, pursue, and secure ambitious and sustainable fundraising goals.
  • Secure new sources of funding and diversify existing revenue streams to strengthen GLAD’s financial position.
  • Maintain, develop, and enhance positive relationships with key current funders while identifying, cultivating, and securing new donors.
Organizational and Team Management 
  • Champion efforts to strengthen an equitable organizational culture for 35+ employees and interns and 15-20 board members.
  • Lead and guide the functions of the Senior Management Team (SMT) with direct management responsibilities over four senior leaders: Development, Finance and Operations, Legal, and Public Affairs and Education.   
  • In partnership with the SMT, facilitate staff professional development, promote recruitment and retention best practices, facilitate effective performance management and evaluation systems, provide coaching, and expand career advancement pathways to build best-in-class teams.
  • Provide strong organizational development leadership, including the development and improvement of organizational infrastructure (such as processes, systems, tools, and protocols) to maximize efficiency and support future growth.
Community Engagement and Strategic Alliances
  • Continually scan the advocacy landscape to identify strategic alliances and coalitions within and beyond the movement that amplify organizational impact, foster collaboration, and drive collective progress towards achieving shared goals of equality and social justice, particularly for communities of color.
  • Provide compelling storytelling about GLAD’s mission, programs, and accomplishments with the public forum.
  • In close partnership with GLAD’s Public Affairs & Education and Legal Teams, deepen and nurture relationships with community leaders, government agencies, partner organizations, local businesses, elected officials, and other external stakeholders to deepen collaboration, engage new constituencies, and expand community presence.
External Relations and Presence

Candidate Profile

GLAD has a commitment to justice and lived equality; inclusion, equity, and mutual respect; anti-racism, and collaboration, and has defined these as the core values that are integral to fulfilling our mission. These organizational values apply to all levels and positions in the organization and each employee is encouraged to find ways to integrate the core values into their day-to-day work.

GLAD’s next Executive Director does not need to be a lawyer or come directly from the LGBTQ+ legal advocacy space, though both of those experiences would be beneficial. An authentic commitment to LGBTQ+ advocacy and civil rights is critical, as are the leadership, strategic, and visionary skills required to help GLAD successfully meet the challenges of this moment in history.

We encourage interest from candidates from all backgrounds, especially those who are transgender, disabled, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). GLAD is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace where all individuals are valued and respected. While not every candidate will have experience in all the responsibilities outlined in the position profile, successful candidates will be guided by these core competencies:

Alignment with GLAD’s Mission

Deeply committed to GLAD’s values, you feel compelled to amplify GLAD’s national presence and quest to defend and expand LGBTQ+ rights. You lead with humility, kindness, and compassion; demonstrate integrity and transparency; and exhibit a genuine passion for our mission, values, and work. A patient and empathetic listener, you address organizational challenges with transparency and open communication and are a champion for including diverse representation, particularly for those with marginalized and multiple marginalized identities, at all levels of seniority. You see this as an opportunity to leverage your leadership skills to elevate GLAD’s impact and influence on a national stage, drive meaningful progress in LGBTQ+ rights, and recognize that GLAD’s litigation, legislation, policy advocacy, and collaboration are crucial to securing strategic legal victories and advancing equality for the LGBTQ+ community across the country. 

Fundraising and Resource Development

Captivated by the excitement of fundraising for a cause, you thrive on seizing opportunities to attract donor attention and cultivate new revenue streams. You bring an understanding and curiosity of the competitive fundraising landscape, how and where GLAD can gain new forms of financial support, and know how to leverage generational transfers of wealth as you engage donors to bolster financial stability. Through persuasive storytelling and deep personal connections, you foster meaningful donor relationships to ensure sustainable funding and pave the way for organizational growth and success. An ambitious leader, you bring either a demonstrated track record of fundraising success closing gifts from individuals or institutions or are open, committed, and ready to learn quickly and become an outstanding relationship-driven fundraiser.          

Strategic Planning and Execution

A strategic thinker, you adeptly navigate increasingly politicized social landscapes to drive measured growth and impact. You work through consensus to maximize capacity, overcome internal and external challenges, and work collaboratively to ensure smooth adaptation to change. With a penchant for ambitious goals, you foster alignment with organizational objectives and inspire confidence among teams. Through collaborative partnerships and effective leadership, you set and execute strategic priorities, empower your teams to achieve impactful outcomes, build capacity for long-term sustainability, and navigate both internal and external challenges with transparency and grace. As a leader and advocate, you understand how to develop and implement strategic frameworks within a multi-stakeholder environment or organization. 

External Presence and Relationship Building

A deeply relational and connected leader, you embrace and lift up local and national advocacy partners to achieve impact and recognition. You are a skilled storyteller who creates impactful narratives that incite calls to action, coalesce key stakeholders, and inspire the belief that our movement is stronger together. As the external face of an organization, you have a track record of successfully increasing name recognition, engaging a diverse range of audiences and collaborators, and forging strategic partnerships within civil rights and LGBTQ+ advocacy to advanced shared goals of equality and social justice for all. 

Leadership and Organizational Development

A motivational leader, you commit to fostering inclusive workplace cultures where staff feel empowered to achieve their full potential and embrace change. You prioritize staff well-being by facilitating strong operations, partnering with senior leaders to develop clear career pathways for junior staff, and invest in technology to support a fast-paced, agile organization. You honor and emphasize staff support, recognition, and appreciation to maintain a healthy organizational culture, support strategic hiring, and foster organizational agility. Above all else, you invest in emerging leaders and firmly believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral for the movement’s success.

Job Description

The Opportunity

Since 1978, GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) has achieved scores of precedent-setting legal victories to end discrimination based on gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and HIV status. Time after time, GLAD has broken through resistance and prejudice to make real progress for transgender rights, family protections and marriage equality, LGBTQ+ youth rights, protections for people living with HIV and much more. GLAD is focused on working at the cutting edge of LGBTQ+ rights, advancing strategies to address discrimination occurring at the intersections of race and LGBTQ+ status, and keeping a close watch on a counter-movement that is fighting hard to roll back critical progress.

We are at a critical moment in our efforts for LGBTQ+ justice, racial justice, and lived equality. The rights of LGBTQ+ people, and transgender individuals in particular, are under attack, as evidenced by the over 500 anti-LGBTQ bills filed in 45 state legislatures this year and efforts by opponents to expand religious exemptions to LGBTQ+ nondiscrimination protections through a conservative-leaning federal judiciary. 

To deepen and expand our legal and advocacy work into our next chapter, GLAD seeks a staff attorney to engage in GLAD’s cutting-edge impact litigation, public policy advocacy, and education. The Staff Attorney will work independently and collaboratively within a team made up of some of the most experienced LGBTQ+ advocates in the movement, and will have the opportunity to be mentored and grow into the next generation of legal advocates and leaders for the LGBTQ+ community. 

 

About the Role

GLAD seeks an attorney with a minimum of 3-7 years of litigation, legal research and writing, and/or policy experience, who has a passion for LGBTQ+ and/or HIV work as well as all related social justice issues that impact the LGBTQ+ community, including racial justice. Reporting to one of the senior directors in the department and working in collaboration with the legal team, the Staff Attorney will handle an active workload of litigation, legislation, and policy issues to advance GLAD’s organizational priorities. 

This position presents an opportunity for an emerging legal leader to learn from GLAD’s experienced and intergenerational legal team, helping create and implement strategies using legislation, litigation, policy, and public education to advance justice on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and HIV status, and exemplify commitment to racial justice. 

The Staff Attorney works collaboratively with the Legal Department and other GLAD staff to: 

  • Contribute to the legal department's decision-making strategy, help identify and assess matters for impact litigation, and file cases in state and federal court and other disputes. 
  • Serve on litigation teams, including being involved in case and client development, legal research, pleadings and briefs drafting, discovery and motion practice, hearings, trials, and appeals. 
  • Support amicus curiae efforts through brief writing and coordination. 
  • Provide technical expertise and support to private litigators and organizations facing complex LGBTQ issues in state and federal courts and government agencies. 
  • Monitor and selectively engage in legal policy and legislative affairs and developments, both in federal law and with respect to the laws and governments of the New England states and nationally, through consultation and collaboration, legal research and drafting, identifying stakeholders and experts, lobbying, and public education. 
  • Provide support for GLAD Answers, GLAD’s legal information and referral service, including by working up legal intakes and providing individual support or legal referrals, where appropriate, to people who seek legal help. 
  • Engage in select legal, community, and stakeholder presentations, events, forums, including information sharing and developing and representing GLAD positions to the media and the public.
  • Center organizational values, including anti-racism, equity, inclusion, and mutual respect in all work.

 

Qualifications

  • J.D. degree and admission to practice law in at least one state in the United States. If not licensed in a New England state, the candidate may also be required to seek admission to a New England state within one year of hire. 
  • Minimum of 3-7 years of litigation, legal research and writing, and/or policy experience who has a passion for LGBTQ+ and/or HIV work as well as all related social justice issues that impact the LGBTQ+ community, including racial justice.
  • Strong legal research, analysis, writing, and oral communication skills. 
  • Previous litigation experience including motion practice, trial practice and/or appeals.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills in context of client and client development, all aspects of litigation, lobbying or advocacy with government officials, and public persuasion. 
  • Understanding of and commitment to the ways that all forms of discrimination, including racial discrimination, impacts the LGBTQ community and informs our strategies and priorities. 
  • Ability to build mutually respectful and collaborative partnerships with other marginalized communities including communities of color. 
  • Potential for growth and development in skills and expertise as an attorney over time. 
  • Demonstrated ability to work across departments and teams, both internally and externally with diverse stakeholders.
  • Independence, as well as the ability to work as part of an integrated team.

Other helpful qualifications include: 

  • Knowledge of LGBTQ+ law and/or policy, anti-discrimination, health care, education, family, and/or constitutional law. 

 

Compensation

This is a full-time, exempt position with a competitive salary range of $90,000-$120,000 for attorneys 3-5 years out of law school and $100,000-$135,000 for attorneys 6-10 years out of law school. GLAD provides excellent benefits including three weeks of paid vacation, fully paid individual health and dental insurance, and disability insurance.

 

Location

This is a national remote-eligible position with the expectation of regular travel every other month to GLAD’s office in Boston. 

 

45 Years of Groundbreaking Work

GLAD has been changing history since our founding in 1978. GLAD argued the Supreme Court case that established people living with HIV are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. GLAD lawyers broke ground on some of the movement’s earliest transgender rights victories, including winning the first appeals court decision to affirm that discrimination based upon transgender identity is prohibited under sex discrimination laws as well as landmark rulings in areas including gender affirming medical care and transgender students’ educational access. GLAD’s decades-long leadership in the marriage equality movement culminated in arguing for and winning the freedom to marry nationally at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015. 

Now in its fifth decade, GLAD is well positioned to leverage its substantial experience and track record of strategic victories to address systemic discrimination, push back against efforts to reverse progress, and expand access to equity and justice for the entire community.

 

GLAD’s Mission, Structure and Values
Through strategic litigation, legislation, public policy advocacy, and education, GLAD works in New England and nationally to create a just society free of discrimination based on gender identity and expression, HIV status, and sexual orientation. 

Headquartered in Boston, MA and governed by a Board of Directors, GLAD operates with a $4+ million annual budget and 30+ staff and interns. 

GLAD operates with a commitment to the following organizational values: Justice and Lived Equality; Inclusion, Equity, and Mutual Respect; Anti-Racism; and Collaboration.

Visit www.GLAD.org to learn more about our work, history, staff, board and values.  

 

Justice for All 

GLAD’s newly adopted strategic plan endeavors to deepen our national leadership and impact, expand our legal capacity, protect a multiracial, pluralistic democracy, and sustain an antiracist and intergenerational movement for the long term.

 

Our Commitment to Racial Justice

GLAD is focused on ensuring that our legal strategies to advance LGBTQ+ equity and equality acknowledge intersecting oppressions and advance interlocking social movements, particularly movements for racial justice. 

GLAD’s work focuses on both harm reduction within systems that disproportionately target and harm LGBTQ+ people of color as well as the imperative to reform, dismantle and create alternatives to the systems themselves. LGBTQ+ youth of color are over-disciplined in school, disproportionately targeted by police, and disproportionately represented in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. LGBTQ+ adults of color are disproportionately represented and face exceptionally brutal treatment in our systems of incarceration. The HIV epidemic continues to disproportionately harm communities of color, especially gay men of color, who lack the same access to life-saving prophylactic medications such as PrEP.  

GLAD challenges discriminatory systems, policies and practices; engages in intentional, sustained partnerships with LGBTQ communities of color; and works to build and maintain coalitions with allied social justice movements. We pay equal attention to our organizational culture, practices, and staff and board composition to ensure that they reflect these values.

About Building Movement Project

Since its founding in 1999, the Building Movement Project (BMP) has been on the front edge of understanding and illuminating the issues, trends, and practices that enable the nonprofit sector – including the constellation of networks, organizations, and movements working for justice and equity – to be effective in a rapidly changing ecosystem. BMP provides insightful research, practical resources, and pathways for transformative relationships that support nonprofit organizations, networks, and movements in their work to create a just and equitable world. BMP imagines a world where all community members live with dignity and power, supported by diverse and resilient organizations, networks and movements that work to eradicate root causes of inequity and injustice.

In order to achieve this bold mission, BMP sits at the unique intersection of social justice movement work and rigorous, cutting-edge research and analysis. Providing credibility on both fronts, BMP stands alone as an organization, offering unmatched insights to the field. Over the organization’s 25 years, BMP has put out over 65 reports (with more to come) and written two books, in addition to publishing toolkits and resources to support cross-movement solidarity, racial equity in nonprofit organizations, and community engagement. BMP has been well-supported by partners and funders throughout the philanthropic sector to expand their work, including a generous grant from Mackenzie Scott in 2021. Today, BMP has a roughly $3m budget with funds in reserve. 

A multi-generational, multi-racial, and geographically dispersed team of 14 committed and passionate team members enables work that pushes forward “the Three Rs” - research, resources, and relationships - for the field. BMP’s organizational culture values care and collaboration, while providing staff with the autonomy and resources to be effective in their work. Supporting BMP is an Advisory Board comprised of sector thought-leaders from around the country who offer strategic insights. As a fully remote organization, BMP is well-prepared with systems and structures to allow for flexibility across the entire staff. While all staff work remotely from different cities, the majority of staff are in Eastern Standard Time Zone.

Building Movement Project is fiscally sponsored by TSNE.

Learn more about Building Movement Project at: www.buildingmovement.org.


Opportunity

Against the backdrop of increasingly polarized political and social divisions, BMP’s organizational health is stronger than ever. With a solid foundation of fiscal strength and a respected organizational reputation, BMP is ready to define its next chapter with new leadership. Looking forward, BMP is excited to hire either a single Executive Director, who will have the funding and support to assess organizational and leadership opportunities and then hire a Co-Executive Director or other senior leadership team member in the first year, or a pair of Co-Executive Directors through this search process. 

Currently, five roles report jointly to the sitting Co-Executive Directors: Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships, Senior Director of Institutional Advancement, Senior Manager of Partnership, Director of Research, and Director of Race Equity Assessment. This structure may evolve or continue under new leadership. The Executive Director or Co-Executive Directors will report directly to the Advisory Board, under the guideline and support of TSNE, as fiscal sponsor. This is a full-time, exempt position.

BMP is seeking the next leader or co-leadership team to bring meaningful and credible experience in movement-building, research, fundraising, and management to oversee the following key responsibilities, with the aligned skills demonstrated in their backgrounds. 


Deep Understanding and Analysis of Social Justice Movement Work 

  • Explore and analyze sector needs, trends, and forthcoming issues in local and national contexts, based on professional expertise and connections with leaders on the ground 
  • Offer an advanced analysis and practice in the areas of race equity, leadership development, and justice and liberation as a thought-leader in the nonprofit arena
  • Oversee highest quality research and creation of tools and resources to support social justice movements and leaders, including conceptualization, hands-on writing, research design, and editing work of team members
Aligned Requirements
  • Professional track record in nonprofit leadership, namely in movement/organizing/social justice work and with communities of color, immigrants, and with organizations that serve those communities
  • Outstanding writing abilities, preferably demonstrated through past publications, research, opinion pieces, and/or reports on issues related to BMP's work
  • A well-established national network of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders
  • Demonstration of passion, curiosity, and loving agitation for the nonprofit sector


External Representation and Engagement

  • Ensure revenue and financial health by leading organizational fundraising and partnering closely with staff, including the Senior Director, Institutional Advancement, to ensure financial sustainability
  • Crystallize and articulate the BMP strategy, vision, and unique expertise with programmatic and philanthropic partners, press, and other constituents
  • Serve as an ambassador for BMP and its work; develop, maintain, and leverage relationships with relevant leaders and contributors throughout the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors
Aligned Requirements
  • Comfort with fundraising and managing donor or client relationships
  • Outstanding external communication, group facilitation, and public speaking skills, including with individuals, large and small groups, and with the press
  • Familiarity with facilitation and leading conversations about complex topics, including race, class, gender, sexual identity, and abilities - and how they play out in individuals, organizations, and systems


Vision-Setting, Execution, and Implementation

  • Weave together the current successful work of BMP and future opportunities into a cohesive vision that incorporates input from the Advisory Board, staff, and voices from the field, upholding existing commitments to partners and identifying new needs 
  • Build and evolve a leadership team, organizational structure, and work approach to align with the needs of constituencies throughout the sector
  • Produce concrete contributions to social change through research, resources, and relationships
Aligned Requirements
  • Experience identifying and seizing opportunities based on needs of a constituent base and connecting them to a broader vision/mission
  • Proven ability to lead a team to execute complex projects through production support and meeting work plans and goals 
  • Ability to operate with attention to both high-level strategy and on-the-ground work, as well as national and local contexts


Internal Management

  • Mentor, develop, and coach a dedicated staff team to ensure workflow management and fulfillment of organizational commitments
  • Manage with a deep understanding of organizational equity and a culture of care that allows staff across identities to be supported and thrive
  • Lead and partner with a Senior Leadership Team which currently includes the Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships and Senior Director of Institutional Advancement   
  • Enact and continue a leadership structure that reflects lessons learned on organizational and individual sustainability 
  • In the near-term, hire a Research Director who will be responsible for management of research team and work (including the Race to Lead Initiative and Building Blocks for Change Race Equity Assessment) 
Aligned Requirements
  • Senior-level experience managing a remote team or organization with an eye towards culture-building and equity
  • Comfort giving and receiving feedback and serving in an environment that values communication and collaboration
  • Enthusiasm for building team and organizational culture, staff mentorship and engagement, and performance management


Organizational Oversight

  • In partnership with appropriate staff and TSNE, ensure that budgeting/expenditures, operational needs, contracts, and other operational needs are appropriately managed
  • Proactively guide and maintain relationship with Advisory Board, identifying areas of engagement and partnering with them for best service to BMP; recruit new Advisory Board Members as needed
  • Serve as the day-to-day lead contact point for the TSNE fiscal sponsorship relationship
Aligned Requirements
  • Previous work overseeing and managing budgets for an organization, department, or complex project/initiative
  • Experience partnering with and engaging external stakeholders in an advisory capacity (either formally or informally)
  • Understanding of and respect for the fiscal sponsorship relationship


Research shows that women and people of color are less likely to apply to positions if they do not have 100% of qualifications listed. Especially since there will be flexibility to hire staff to scaffold the Executive Director, please consider applying even if you do not have all of the qualifications noted above.


Location and Compensation

This is a remote position, to be filled from a home office or a coworking space within the U.S.

While the needs will change each year and based on the location of the Executive Director(s), roughly 25% of time will be spent traveling within the U.S. for meetings, conferences, and other needs.

The salary range for a single Executive Director or each individual in a pair of Co-Executive Directors is $200,000 to $225,000 with comprehensive benefits, based on experience, qualifications, and region where the work is being performed. Exact salary will also depend on the structure of the role. 

Benefits for Building Movement Project staff are provided by TSNE and supplemented by BMP. The robust benefits package includes: generous Paid-Time-Off (PTO): 12 paid holidays, 3 weeks vacation, 1 week personal holiday, and health leave time for all staff; Health insurance at 80% Employer-paid, offering some $0 deductible packages through Harvard Pilgrim/United Healthcare along with several low-deductible plans; Low-cost Guardian Dental and Vision; Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for Health and Dependent Care; Employer-paid Life, Long- and Short-Term Disability Insurance; Employer-paid Pension through TIAA; and staff development funds up to $2,500.

 

Application Process

For the last ten years, BMP has been successfully led by a pair of Co-Executive Directors, in recognition of the volume of work required to fulfill the organization’s needs. This search welcomes interest from either:

  1. Single Executive Director applicants who will have the flexibility and funding to add to the staff in the way they see most fit or 
  2. A pair of Co-Executive Director applicants who would divide the roles and work based on their expertise and interests. Co-Executive Director applicant pairs are required to have previously collaborated in a close working relationship, either in the same organization or on an initiative, for at least 18 months. (Applicant pairs should note their partner in their online application.) Additional questions about joint applications can be directed to Melissa Madzel (applications@dogoodconnections.com). 

To apply, please submit your resume and a compelling letter of interest that specifically outlines your experience in social justice/organizing/advocacy work and that notes any research or writing work you have done. This will serve as a writing sample for your application. Candidate pairs are expected to write a joint letter of interest that outlines their ability to work and lead together. 

Applications submitted before March 4, 2024 will have preference, but applications will be accepted and considered until the role is filled. Search Committee Interviews are expected to take place in April and May, 2024, with the aim to fill the role by the end of May, 2024. 

The search process is being coordinated by Melissa Madzel, Founder and Principal of Do Good Connections, in partnership with Equitable Hiring Group. Questions may be directed to Melissa at applications@dogoodconnections.com.

Job Description

About The Center

Since our founding in 1983, The LGBT Community Center (The Center) has been a place of hope and a refuge for the LGBTQ+ community in New York. We are today - as we were then - a place of safety, connection, activism, and joy.

As we celebrate our 40th Anniversary, the time is right to reflect on the past and share our vision for the next 40 years, supported by new thinking around what “community” means in these times. Recent years have shaped us in ways that have spurred a profound commitment- in theory and practice- to racial, economic, and gender equity. We have a renewed sense of purpose to center the perspectives and needs of Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as transgender and gender expansive (TGE) communities.  Our new core values will guide the direction we take today and, in the years to come, committing us to the following: advocating for racial, gender, and economic justice using an intersectional lens, taking a community-driven approach, elevating collaboration, and fostering healing and joy.

At 40, we look back with pride for all we’ve accomplished and made possible, but also with humility in acknowledgment of the mistakes we’ve made along the way. There is still so much more to do together as we continue to build a future where our entire community shines.

The last few years have challenged how people access services, interact with each other and engage with their communities. We are plugged in digitally at a higher speed and scale, and yet isolation and threats to our community have never been more acute.

The fact is, even with virtual options, we know that the community centers movement is growing and thriving. There are 300 LGBTQ+ community centers in the country, and that number continues to climb. A staggering one in five LGBTQ+ people regularly use services at their local community center.  A source of healing, joy, and communal power, LGBT Centers are more vital and valuable than ever. We believe in the enduring power of this treasured space and the role it will play in years to come. 

To learn more about how the Center is serving the community, please visit gaycenter.org.

Job Description

POSITION DESCRIPTION

Title:   Chief Development Officer (CDO) 

Organization:  Rainbow Railroad USA (https://www.rainbowrailroad.org/)

Reports to:  Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Location:  Rainbow Railroad is based in Toronto, Canada. Rainbow Railroad USA is headquartered in New York City. This is a remote position to be located in the U.S. (Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., or Chicago preferred.)

ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW

Rainbow Railroad stands at the forefront of the global movement to advance and protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and intersex) people wherever they are in the world. With a focus on helping those most vulnerable find safety from persecution and violence, Rainbow Railroad is internationally recognized for its work in providing support and resettlement assistance to individuals in some of the most virulently anti-LGBTQI+ locations in the world.

Across the globe, 67 countries have laws that expressly criminalize homosexuality and many more have other laws that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In 11 countries, same-sex intimacy can be punishable by death. In too many countries, LGBTQI+ people are routinely arrested, denied basic human rights, and are being brutally attacked, tortured, or even murdered.

Rainbow Railroad was founded in 2006 to provide an additional solution to address the global refugee crisis, to which LGBTQI+ people are uniquely vulnerable. Rainbow Railroad’s mission is to help persecuted LGBTQI+ individuals get to safety as they seek a safe haven from state- enabled harassment and violence. Rainbow Railroad provides support to LGBTQI+ individuals seeking safety with airfare and financial support that facilitates departure, travel, arrival, and referral for resettlement. Beyond direct financial assistance, Rainbow Railroad provides information, resources, and advice for asylum claimants.

In partnership with a global network of LGBTQI+ organizations and human rights defenders, Rainbow Railroad coordinates directly with individuals experiencing violence to get them out of harm’s way. Around the world, Rainbow Railroad is recognized for its efforts to support and protect the thousands of LGBTQI+ people living in countries which criminalize their existence.

With headquarters in Toronto and a U.S. office in New York City, Rainbow Railroad employs a dedicated and mission-driven staff of around 55 full- and part time employees in Canada and the US and supports a large network of volunteers around the world. Rainbow Railroad has experienced exponential growth over the last several years. The organization is largely funded through private donations and has a current revenue goal of $15 million (CAD). This budget comprises roughly 28% Individual & Major Gifts, 28% Foundation/Institution Giving, 22% Corporate Sponsorships, and 22% Community Giving (including third party and local events).

RAINBLOW RAILROAD STRATEGIC PLAN SUMMARY:

The Fight for LGBTQI+ Liberation: Rainbow Railroad’s Roadmap for 2023-2026

Our Vision: A World Where LGBTQI+ People Are Free of Persecution and Live a Life of Their Choosing

Until full liberation is possible, we must continue to help LGBTQI+ persons at-risk now.

Where We Are Now

Right now, there are more forcibly displaced people in the world than at any other time in recorded history. Queer and trans refugees are uniquely vulnerable due to systemic homophobia and transphobia.

In more than 60 countries around the world, same-sex intimacy is criminalized, and LGBTQI+ people face severe forms of violence and persecution because of who they are or who they love. Since our founding in 2006, we’ve helped over 13,000 at-risk LGBTQI+ individuals get to safety.

In 2026, we will celebrate 20 years of vital and revolutionary work to queer the system and get more LGBTQI+ people to safety. Our 2023 2026 Strategic Plan tackles this challenge head-on. Through this plan, we share our commitment to getting more at-risk LGBTQI+ individuals to safety and centering our work on the people we help. Between 2023 2026, we will tackle 3 key priorities:

➢ Get More to Safety Now. Rainbow Railroad’s primary goal is to assist LGBTQI+ individuals to move to safer locations as quickly as possible, and the individuals seeking our assistance must be centered in all aspects of our work.

➢ Queer the System. We will be leaders by advocating for the inclusion and protection of forcibly displaced LGBTQI+ persons at every level of the global asylum system.

➢ Strengthen our Foundation. As we move forward, we remain focused on strengthening our organization, evaluating, and refining our systems, and becoming more efficient and effective with the funds entrusted to us by our supporters.
