Job Description

Managing Director

Gender Spectrum

Emeryville, CA

SUMMARY

Gender Spectrum is focused on addressing issues related to children, youth, and gender, with a mission to create a gender-inclusive world for all. To accomplish this, we help families, organizations, and institutions increase understandings of gender and consider the implications that evolving views have for each of us.

We've come a long way since our founding in 2007. We have developed a reputation as the national leader on issues of youth and gender. We run the oldest and largest conference in the world specifically for trans and non-binary children and their families. In addition, as the trusted experts in this field, we educate and train youth-related professionals. In 2017 alone, we trained educators of 33 million children on youth and gender.

To serve the growing demand for support and information, we launched an online forum called The Lounge. The Lounge provides online content, and community and discussion youth groups for youth, family members, and professionals. We have members of the online community from all 50 states, 47 countries (at last count), and every continent.

As we continue to grow our impact and our team, increasing our online work will be a key area of focus, and we have other projects in development, including an expansion of our impact in the corporate world. To learn more about who we are and what we do, please visit www.genderspectrum.org.

Gender Spectrum is an equal opportunity employer and we value diverse perspectives and experiences at our organization. We are committed to ensuring that our organization is fully inclusive and engages with the intersectionality of the communities we serve. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status, or on any other basis prohibited by applicable law. People of color and gender-diverse people are strongly encouraged to apply.

CANDIDATE PROFILE

Gender Spectrum is seeking to accelerate our growth in response to an ever-increasing demand for our services. To support this growth, we are seeking a mission-focused, strategic, and process-minded Managing Director to operate as the internal-facing leader of the organization, which will allow us to continue to leverage our Executive Director as an external-facing leader. The Managing Director will partner closely with the Executive Director to chart Gender Spectrum's future growth and strategic response to the need for our services. The Managing Director will lead our staff, fostering a culture of accountability and teamwork and ensuring all staff are supported in aligning their work to our strategic plan and priorities. In addition, the Managing Director will oversee the financial and administrative aspects of the organization and develop, implement, and refine internal policies and procedures necessary to support us as we grow.

We are excited to welcome a leader with strong business acumen and experience in scaling an organization, leading staff, and developing a high-performance culture to our team of diverse, talented individuals.

Key responsibilities:

Job Description

The LGBT Center of Raleigh (the Center) serves as a hub of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community of Raleigh, NC and surrounding areas.

The Center empowers people to live rich, healthy lives and to discover the strength found in community through a wide variety of programs, services and activities. These include: a variety of programming produced by dozens of community groups and organizations which meet throughout the year; several support and social group meetings, as well as a plethora of educational opportunities, some provided by members of our community and our friends and allies. In addition, one of the Center’s prime functions is to provide free HIV/STI testing through our community partners.

Located in the heart of downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, the Center (www.lgbtcenterofraleigh.com) has a staff of four, a ten-member Board of Directors and an annual operating budget of approximately $500,000. Board and staff have recently completed an in-depth five-year strategic plan, which includes key programmatic and advocacy goals as well as enhanced fundraising, marketing and communications efforts.

Basic Function

The Executive Director will be a visionary leader and strategist who will both fully embrace the current mission of the Center and continue to strengthen it, understands the breadth and diversity of its programs, and appreciates the communities it serves. They will provide the overall direction for the Center and its activities, finances and funding, and will ensure that programs and services maintain the highest level of quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness while responding to the changing needs of the LGBTQ+ community in Raleigh and beyond, particularly focusing on those needs that the Center is uniquely positioned to address. The Executive Director must be able to strategically manage the institution, delegate responsibility through a professional and highly committed senior staff, and assume ownership of the newly developed strategic plan. Ultimately, with assistance from the board of directors, the Executive Director will refine and shape the strategic plan, while also ensuring implementation of its programmatic, financial and marketing goals.

Reporting to the Board of Directors and working closely with the Board Executive Committee, the Executive Director will ensure that the Center is fiscally and administratively sound, and that its programs continue to be innovative, socially useful and meaningful enough to engage existing and new members, users and funders.
