JOB DESCRIPTION

Beloved Community is hiring an Associate Director to spearhead diverse, inclusive, and equitable content development and delivery of our key programmatic strands (Equity at Home, Equity in Schools, and Equity at Work). As the Associate Director you will oversee 1) curriculum and tool development for each strand of our capacity building model; 2) facilitate Equity in Schools and Equity at Work capacity-building workshops and training; and 3) onboard and provide support for cohort facilitators. The Associate Director will manage subcontractors and part-time program facilitators. Under the guidance of the Director of Education & Programming, the Associate Director will ensure that all Beloved programs and partner sessions have the highest level of research-based equity curriculum and culture facilitation.

In this position you will deliver high quality coaching and guidance to the Executive Director/CEO and senior leadership team of our client organizations. Our approach allows us to meet organizations where they are by offering a variety of organization-specific interventions. You will research and customize interventions that directly respond to each organization's pain points. An academic or professional background in DEI is not required, rather, you should possess a deep understanding of applied DEI concepts.

Though remote, we provide a collaborative and interactive team that demands flexibility and constant communication while encouraging individual ideation and approach.

What You Bring

  • You have a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including working against the tenets of white supremacy culture, centering Intersectionality, and dismantling anti-Black racism.
  • You are able to personalize content and materials. You pull from a wide range of sources (research, articles, mixed media, social media, lived experiences, etc) to personalize the work and help others relate to DEI concepts, ideas, and theories.
  • You are able to adapt quickly. Speaking and facilitating do not always go according to plan. As the Associate Director, Equity in Work/Equity in Schools you are able to think quickly when something goes awry.
  • You are able to manage tension. You effectively interrogate and manage emotionally driven conflicts in both large and small group settings.
  • You have managed/facilitated adult learners. You are able to add supports, references and feedback to engage, inspire, and challenge a group of adult learners.
  • You are highly collaborative. You are an individual who embraces others’ ideas and insights to develop stronger, more comprehensive content and presentations.
  • You can elicit an emotional response from any audience. You are able to get people to feel work deeply and lead them to personal action.
  • You have excellent people skills, including intuition to sense emotion and energy, insight into and perceptiveness about people and organizational dynamics, ability to build trust, ability to lead with inquiry rather than judgement, willingness to tell the truth, and tackle tough issues.
