About CenterLink:

CenterLink does not and shall not discriminate based on race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, gender identity, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.

 Our Organization:

Mission:  CenterLink strengthens, supports, and connects LGBTQ community centers.

Vision: CenterLink envisions flourishing LGBTQ centers that nurture thriving, healthy, safe communities.

CenterLink was founded in 1994 as a member-based coalition to support the development of strong, sustainable LGBTQ community centers.  The organization plays an essential role in supporting the growth of LGBTQ centers and addressing the challenges they face, by helping them to improve their organizational and service delivery capacity and increase access to public resources. Based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, CenterLink works with other national organizations to advance the rights of LGBTQ individuals and to provide LGBTQ community centers with information and analysis of critical issues.

Serving over 200 LGBTQ community centers across the country in 46 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, as well as centers in Canada, China, Mexico, Uganda, and Australia, CenterLink assists newly forming community centers and helps strengthen existing LGBTQ centers, through networking opportunities for center leaders, peer-based technical assistance and training, and a variety of capacity building services. We base our efforts on the belief that LGBTQ community centers are primary change agents in the national movement working toward the liberation and empowerment of LGBTQ people. Serving over 2 million people annually, they are the heart and soul of the LGBTQ movement and are vital to our current well-being and dreams for the future.  Whether they provide direct services, educate the public or organize for social change, community centers work more closely with their LGBTQ constituency and engage more community leaders and decision-makers than any other LGBTQ network in the country.

Centers serve a vital and multi-faceted role in many communities across the country.  They are often the only staffed nonprofit LGBTQ presence in the area and the first point of contact for people seeking information, coming out, accessing services, or organizing for social change. Over 60% of LGBTQ centers provide some direct health services (including counseling, peer-led programs, and support groups, as well as physical health and other mental health services). At the same time, LGBTQ community centers remain thinly staffed, with over 35% operating with no paid staff, relying solely on volunteers; and over 35% employing five or fewer paid staff.

A fundamental goal of our mission is to help build the capacity of centers to meet the social, cultural, health, and political advocacy needs of LGBTQ community members across the country.  CenterLink also acts as a voice for LGBTQ community centers in national grassroots organizing, coalition building, and social activism in order to strengthen and build a unified center movement.

Job Description

The National Employment Law Project (NELP) seeks a Director of Social Insurance who will lead a dynamic team and seek to deepen and expand our work as it relates to public programs that provide economic security to workers and their families. We are seeking someone with 10 years of experience in advancing workers’ rights, promoting work and racial equity, working in partnership with anti-racist, Black-led organizations, and with expertise in social insurance policies.

 

Who We Are

NELP is a national nonprofit advocacy organization with offices in New York, Washington D.C., and Berkeley, with the core goals of building worker power, dismantling structural racism, and addressing economic inequality. We promote federal, state, and local policies to create good jobs, strengthen workers’ upward mobility, enforce worker rights, and improve benefits and services for unemployed workers. In collaboration with national and grassroots partners, NELP advances its work through research, advocacy, litigation support, and technical assistance designed to raise wages, end wage theft and workplace violations, strengthen unemployment insurance, ensure employer accountability for workers in contract employment, encourage fair chance employment practices, and promote a comprehensive policy framework to build a good jobs economy. For more information, see www.nelp.org.

 

What You Will Do

This position calls for a strategic program leader who will advance the Social Insurance team’s goal of ensuring that all working people receive the benefits and social insurance guarantees they and their families need to achieve and sustain economic security over their lifetimes. The Director of Social Insurance will be responsible for the Social Insurance Portfolio, which includes unemployment insurance, retirement security, home care, and other public benefits. The Director will provide leadership and support to a highly dedicated, experienced team that is working to make certain that public benefits meet the needs of low-wage workers, gig workers, people of color, and other categories of workers who were excluded from programs’ original designs.

 

The Director will monitor the team’s progress in delivering strong, measurable outcomes that meet NELP’s strategic and programmatic priorities. The Director will ensure the team’s work products are worker-centered, presented through a racial equity framework, and are aligned with NELP priorities and resources.

  • Annual planning, including root cause analysis;
  • Team management, including ensuring professional development and leadership opportunities that cultivate growth;
  • Cross-team coordination;
  • Resource management; and

The Director will work closely with other team directors to identify and address intersecting issues, to support thoughtful, strategic coordination between teams, and to assess progress and revise as needed. This collaborative approach extends to our engagement with partners and allies, as we work in coalition to advance workers’ rights. The Director will also work with the Development team to fundraise as well as monitor and ensure compliance with existing grants.

 

In addition to leading a team, the Director will be expected to spend about half of their time using their social insurance policy knowledge to advance NELP’s mission. The Director will engage with allies from other organizations to identify opportunities for collaboration or coordination, execute accordingly, and keep NELP teams in the loop. The Director will author or co-author reports, blog posts, advocacy-oriented products, and web materials, as well as keep abreast of relevant information and policy opportunities and changes. The Director will represent NELP in the media, at public events, and as a conference presenter. Travel is required, and frequency depends on office location.

 

Key Qualifications

We are seeking candidates with:

  • A vision and enthusiasm for advancing worker rights and ensuring their economic security.
  • Ten+ years of directly relevant worker rights, racial equity, and social insurance policy -related experience and at least four years of supervisory experience.
