About the Opportunity

Pride Foundation seeks an experienced professional and embedded community leader to lead our programmatic work. The Director of Programs (DOP) is a critical member of our leadership team who manages and implements our community grants, scholarships, and other key initiatives. This person brings a strong background and analysis in program design and implementation, has a deep understanding of philanthropy and grantmaking, and is experienced in working with QTBIPOC communities and ensuring intersectional racial justice is in every aspect of programs and across organizational systems.

The DOP will support ongoing shifts in our approach to our programmatic work to be more responsive to regionally diverse community needs and opportunities, accountable to racial justice values and practices, to develop and refine our theory of change, and to more effectively utilize the breadth of Pride Foundation’s resources and capacities to bring about change for LGBTQ+ communities. As part of the key responsibilities of this position, the DOP will evaluate programmatic changes that have recently been made and lead the process to evaluate, research, develop, and implement further programmatic changes.

The DOP reports to the CEO, serves on Pride Foundation’s Leadership Team, and leads a departmental team of four staff members. 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 have the option to work out of our headquarters office in Seattle as conditions of the pandemic make in-person work safe.

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 and our 4 day work weeks here.

Primary Responsibilities

The Director of Programs (DOP) provides strategic vision and leadership for Pride Foundation’s programmatic efforts throughout the Northwest. The DOP will manage and provide strategic guidance for all of our resource programs: grantmaking (currently invested through three connected strategies/initiatives) and our scholarships.
