Posted by NPL Connects on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST
Group Health Foundation is a growing 501(c)(4) philanthropic organization committed to shaping and accelerating efforts to improve health and health equity in the State of Washington. We are seeking an Events and Accessibility Associate to join our expanding team.
The Foundation has an audacious goal: health equity in Washington state. We are committed to creating and supporting conditions where people of all communities — especially those experiencing social and economic injustice — can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We are dedicated to partnering with communities across the state to advance a shared vision for a vibrant, healthy future.
Reporting to the Learning and Engagement Manager, the Events and Accessibility Associate provides project management and administrative support in the planning, organizing, and designing of meetings, events, retreats, convenings, and conferences—ensuring that all gatherings are accessible to and accommodating of persons with disabilities. The Foundation is also committed to supporting businesses that reflect the diverse communities of Washington, and the Events and Accessibility Associate is charged with ensuring that the Foundation is demonstrating our values by contracting with diverse businesses, vendors, and consultants. While the Events and Accessibility Associate will be a member of our program team, this position also helps with the planning and coordination of board meetings and staff retreats. The position requires extensive interaction with staff and community stakeholders. The Events and Accessibility Associate must have a passion for equity and disability justice and a deep commitment to making the Foundation fully accessible to communities across the state of Washington.
