Colorado (multiple locations)

Senior Regional Manager, Community Partnerships, The Colorado Trust
The Organization The Colorado Trust (The Trust) is a private grantmaking foundation dedicated to achieving health equity for all Coloradans. Partnering with individuals, groups and communities across the state, The Colorado Trust’s vision is that all Coloradans have fair and equal opportunities to lead healthy, productive lives regardless of race, ethnicity, income or where we live. We define health equity as ending inequalities that affect racial, ethnic, low-income and other vulnerable populations, so that everyone will have fair and equal opportunities to achieve good health. The Trust strives to maintain a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. Position Overview General Position Description Through the Community Partnerships for Health Equity (Community Partnerships) funding strategy, The Trust invests in creating opportunities for people across Colorado to develop and implement community-led initiatives that lead to healthier communities. Senior regional managers will be part of a small statewide management team rooted in communities across the state and working with the executive director of Community Partnerships to manage towards both regional and statewide goals. The responsibility of the regional teams is to build and support the capacity for community-driven organizing and resident-led grantmaking that advances health equity. This staffing model and approach is a reflection of the organizing model described in the Community Partnerships Organizing Cycle, which The Trust began implementing in late 2020. The Community Partnerships Organizing Cycle model builds on more than 6 years of learning about how to best achieve the impact goals of our Community Partnerships funding strategy. The Community Partnerships strategy provides grant funding and other resources to support communities in developing action plans and realizing community-driven approaches that build community power to advance health equity. This role will manage a regional team of community organizers and administrative staff who work in close partnership with local resident teams and community leaders. The senior regional manager will work across multiple regions to collaborate and supervise staff who work with people directly impacted by systemic inequality. The Trust’s approach requires that team members prioritize work in communities where multiple generations have faced structural barriers and exclusion from decision-making power. Successful candidates will have at least 7 years of management experience working with staff with diverse backgrounds and social identities. Candidates with 5 years of experience or less must demonstrate a significant level of success in previous supervisory roles. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a track record of honoring the experience and leadership of communities, and a history of success building long-lasting relationships that build power for systemic change. The senior regional manager has an essential role building multiple teams; holding a team culture across regions and departments that ensures the voices of those who are directly impacted by injustices (especially people of color and people experiencing economic injustice) are centered in our work; and coaching both staff and community leaders to work productively across differences. The senior regional manager position requires both the skill set and leadership aptitude to provide strong staff management and support to community organizers and project administrators that comprise the staff team. The Trust seeks candidates who have on-the-ground knowledge of the region in which they live and work. Team members will be required to build strong relationships that enable them to work as an effective and credible leader with a diverse set of stakeholders and community-based leaders. Location and Travel Requirements Conditions and COVID-19 precautions permitting, senior regional managers are required to travel up to 50% of the time and are expected to be regionally based. The Trust especially seeks candidates who live in the north/northwest part of Colorado, as well as south or southwest of the Denver metro area. Appropriate accommodations will be considered for staff with health-related needs or care-giving responsibilities. Responsibilities and Deliverables Program Management

The Irvine Foundation is committed, internally and externally, to the values of accountability, curiosity, empathy, equity, nimbleness, partnership, and transparency. POSITION SUMMARY  This is an exciting time to join The James Irvine Foundation as our grantmaking has grown steadily from $67 million in 2012 to a projected $129 million in 2021 due to strong investment performance. As we increase our giving it is imperative that we build our internal capacity to collaboratively achieve the impact we seek.

Irvine’s programmatic efforts are focused on three major, multi-year initiatives: Better Careers, Fair Work, and Priority Communities with additional initiatives on the way. Since the Foundation is ever evolving, adjusting for social relevance and policy shifts in both its current initiatives as well as piloting new ones, the Program Officer role requires strong analytical and change management abilities and a high degree of initiative.
