Equity in the Center is now hiring for the VP of Operations, a role that will be critical to our start-up organization’s growth and sustainability!

The VP of Operations will be responsible for building and running cross-functional processes that touch every employee at EiC. This will set us up for success as we transition from an early-stage start-up to a more mature organization with an effective operational infrastructure. In addition, the VP will oversee Human Resources and Accounting in partnership with consulting firms.

The VP will directly impact how we succeed in the next phase of growth. Success in this role requires that they have functioned in a senior operations role of this breadth and depth previously and that they are a willing disrupter who is enthusiastic about the work of dismantling white supremacy at the personal, interpersonal, institutional, and structural levels.

Does this sound like you or someone you know?

Please read the full job description and apply here by Friday, June 17, 2022.

Only applications submitted via the above link will be considered. Please do not email resumes, cover letters, or inquiries to EiC staff or board members. The selection process is being managed by an external consultant to ensure equitable access and consideration for applicants.

To that end, we recently shared a video explaining our practice of paying a land tax to the Piscataway Conoy, whose land we occupy in the Washington, DC region. EIC allocates 2% of our annual budget for this purpose, and encourages colleagues to redistribute resources as part of a broader commitment to take action in solidarity with Indigenous communities.

Since then and over 71,000 downloads later, we continue to build the social sector’s capacity to operationalize race equity. In 2021, we introduced the Race Equity Cycle Pulse Check™, an assessment for organizations to determine where they are on the Race Equity Cycle® and that provides action steps to move from one stage to the next. Initially launched as a free resource, the Pulse Check has been utilized by over 50 organizations, and was determined to be a robust, valid tool when evaluated in 2023. We have complemented our resources and tools with programmatic supports, including training, coaching, cohort programs and a network for race equity practitioners.
