Job Description

The Client

Since 1941, the Planning Council (TPC) has been a leader in transforming ideas and dreams – supplemented by good information and data – into reality. Through consulting, creative partnerships, diligent research, and expert planning, TPC delivers comprehensive solutions and services to communities, organizations, and individuals in Southeastern Virginia, Western Tidewater, Virginia and Maryland Eastern Shore, Northeastern North Carolina, Northern Virginia, and the District of Columbia. For more than 80 years, TPC has been improving quality of life and building stronger communities.

 

TPC’s expertise in community needs assessments, research and evaluation, and strategic planning has resulted in expanded access to affordable healthcare, the formation of model programs for senior care and childcare, expansion of mental and behavioral health services, and the establishment of a regional foodbank. In partnership with local governments and businesses, nonprofit agencies, and the faith-based community, TPC works for the betterment of the most vulnerable populations.

 

Supplementing its core convening, planning, and assessment work, TPC also administers and executes contracts with government agencies, public authorities, and private foundations. Last year, TPC administered $8.2 million in federal and state funds to provide healthy daycare meals to 205,288 children. Through the U.S. Navy Respite Care Program, they coordinated in-home respite care for 465 active-duty military families with children.

 

In addition to facilitating $7 million for HUD-funded programs and serving as the regional administrator of the Continuum of Care (CoC), last year, TPC coordinated nearly $16 million of emergency funding for homeless services across Southeastern Virginia. As the lead agency for the CoC, TPC is responsible for managing the local Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a HUD-mandated data collection and reporting system.

 

Headquartered in Norfolk, The Planning Council is governed by a 23-person Board of Directors and operates with a $13 million annual budget and 38 staff.

Mission, Vision and Values

The Planning Council envisions a community where all members contribute to a successful today and an extraordinary tomorrow. Their mission is to identify community needs, connect people with solutions, and improve lives. The organization’s core values are grounded in a passion for equity, opportunity, and dignity for all. Key characteristics driving TPC’s success are commitments to continuous learning, empathy, curiosity, equity, meaningful relationships, quality products and finding solutions.

 

The Opportunity

This is an extraordinary opportunity for a transformational leader to craft a radically progressive strategy to create and enhance supportive programs for diverse communities. Pervasive and growing inequities that have increased demands on human service providers, have also created space for innovative planning and management. The need to develop and enhance services and to determine how and where programs are delivered has amplified the need for rigorous data collection and analysis, strategic planning, and regional collaboration. With increased institutional and government investment in community-based organizations, the opportunity for a visionary leader to leverage TPC’s expertise to inform the expansion of services and facilitate connections has never been greater.

  • Lead business development efforts to expand partnerships and secure new contracts;
  • Manage the development of budgets and related program and staffing plans that support the organization’s updated strategic goals;
  • Ensure adequate resources to build internal operational capacity, to apply technological solutions in meeting human service needs, and to deliver actionable data to providers in the community and region.

 

Community Engagement

  • Serve as the organization’s primary spokesperson representing TPC in public, in the media, and at community, regional and state events;
  • Manage effective relationships with business, government, and nonprofit leaders across TPC’s entire service area;
  • Establish strong partnerships built on a foundation of equity, trust, reliability, and open communication;

Location

Located in Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina, where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, the historically rich region of coastal Virginia is influenced by vast shipping and fishing industries. Home to the world’s largest naval base and several universities, the region includes the Virginia Stage Company, Virginia Symphony, Norfolk Botanical Garden, the Virginia Zoo, and Chrysler Art Museum. Southeastern Virginia encompasses seven cities including Norfolk, Newport News and Virginia Beach offering a variety of urban, suburban and waterfront communities. Long, warm summers and mild winters provide ample time for residents to enjoy waterside festivals, fishing, biking, and boating. With an abundance of fresh seafood, vibrant arts and entertainment scene, easy access to white sand beaches and an enduring sense of Southern Hospitality it’s no wonder four Southeastern Virginia cities, including Norfolk, made WalletHub’s list "2018 Happiest Places to Live."

 

The city of Norfolk, home to The Planning Council, is one of the nation’s fastest-growing ports, a destination for world-class cuisine and the center of a thriving arts community. The city has a population of 245,000 and a median home price of $207,000.

 

With below average crime and high-performing schools, it’s easy to see why Travel+Leisure named Norfolk  "Favorite American City for 2018."

  • Advocate for policies that curtail the use of residential treatment, institutionalization, and congregate care.
  • Support NCLR projects in opposing discriminatory and harmful policies and practices, including conversion therapy, anti-trans laws and policies, surveillance and separation of LGBTQ youth and families, incarceration, and anti-LGBTQ curricula and policies in schools.

  • Center the voices and perspectives of LGBTQ youth impacted by harmful systems.
  • Work closely with NCLR’s family law team to oppose expansion of the child welfare system, develop LGBTQ support for the transformation of this system, and raise awareness about LGBTQ families of origin impacted by this system.

About Pride Foundation

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.

Founded in 1985, we are the only LGBTQ+ community foundation in the Northwest, and have invested more than $72 million in nonprofit organizations, local leaders, and student scholars through our grants, scholarships, and initiatives. We work in the Northwest states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Pride Foundation has an operating budget of more than $5 million and 15 full-time employees, 5 of whom are fully remote and 10 who are currently remote, but previously worked at our headquarters in Seattle, WA.  Pride Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors with 22 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.  

About TRANSformCulture

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.

The goal of this work is to utilize messaging research and community organizing to increase awareness and acceptance of gender diversity, and to empower BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender diverse community members and leaders as change agents within and beyond their own communities.

Position Summary

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.

Primary Responsibilities

The DCAER will lead all aspects of this work, from developing and maintaining community relationships, outreach, and engagement, to co-designing and implementing the story collection, analysis, and research with the Village Council. The DCAER will also be responsible for coordinating the dissemination and use of this research with community groups and organizations, collecting feedback on effectiveness and community needs, and designing future projects based on what is learned. It is critical that this work be grounded in a research and data justice framework, and also requires the DCAER to bring a strong, intersectional, racial, and gender justice analysis to this work.

Community Outreach and Engagement (30%)

  • Develop, maintain, and center long-term relationship building with BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender diverse community leaders and community groups and organizations across the Northwest region.
  • Coordinate, support, and lead the Village Council community advisory group to strengthen their leadership in the research, build relationships with one another and communities, and implement key components of the research work.
  • Lead and coordinate Village Council meetings, as well as broader community convenings that focus on relationship building and healing justice, as well as the research work.

Research: Story Collection, Analysis, and Design (30%)

  • Lead and coordinate all aspects of research to collect stories and develop messaging with BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex and gender diverse people and communities, in order to shift thinking on binary conceptions of gender and reframe understanding of gender from an indigenous lens.
  • Develop and apply a research justice and data justice framework to all aspects of this research. This requires centering community members as leaders and decision-makers, as well as in data collection and dissemination.
  • Work with community-based researchers to build out research questions and approach, community-based participatory research framework, and strengthen the Village Council’s knowledge and understanding of messaging research and how storytelling can support culture change.
  • Coordinate and support the Village Council to frame research questions, collect community stories across the Northwest, analyze findings, and create messaging tools.

Advocacy: Community Education and Application (20%)

  • Stay engaged with national and local climate and movement building around trans policy, advocacy, and legislative efforts. This includes serving on national and local advocacy coalitions as appropriate.
  • Develop and implement plans to document and disseminate research and tools created by this project locally across the Northwest and nationally with partners, that helps shift the way our movements and communities talk about and understand our communities.
  • Work with community members and leaders to develop tailored messaging tools and public education efforts based on local needs and opportunities (including legislation and campaigns).

Internal Leadership (10%)

  • Serve as a member of Pride Foundation’s Leadership Team, guiding the organization’s strategic vision and internal culture.
  • Actively contribute to creating a model of leadership that intentionally disrupts a traditional style of leadership grounded in white, heteropatriarchal ways of operating. 
  • Lead internal work to ensure a deep understanding across the organization and individual team members of our programmatic priorities, approach, and how it connects to the work we do throughout the organization.

Organizational Culture and Racial Justice (10%) 

  • Understand and integrate racial justice into individual and team workplans, and broader strategic planning efforts. 
  • Commit to personal growth, learning, and transformation, taking initiative to expand your understanding of racial justice and related principles, issues, and practice and how they apply to your and our work.   
  • Meaningfully participate in caucus groups, organizational learning sessions, and other opportunities to shape our organizational culture.  
  • Work to acknowledge, address, and eliminate individual, institutional, and structural racism and its intersections with other forms of oppression in your and our work. 
  • Actively participate in evolving the organizational culture at Pride Foundation to be mission-focused, inclusive, values-aligned, and community-centered. 
  • Grow and apply the skills and practices needed to create an inclusive organizational culture including (but not limited to): clear and kind communication, giving and receiving feedback, mutual accountability, and self-care and boundaries.  
  • Contribute to developing a culture of philanthropy at Pride Foundation by incorporating friend and fund raising as appropriate throughout the work.

  • Demonstrated experience working with LGBTQ+ communities and/or communities disproportionately impacted by injustice, including communities of color, trans and non-binary communities, indigenous communities and tribal nations, immigrant communities, rural communities, etc.
