Since 1971, Fenway Health has been working to make life healthier for the people in the Boston neighborhoods in which its health centers are located: the LGBTQIA+ community of Boston and beyond, people living with HIV/AIDS, and the broader population.
Approaching its 50th year in 2021, Fenway Health has an outstanding legacy and track record of achievement, with a deep commitment to advancing health and well-being. And while extraordinary gains have been made in LGBTQIA+ care over the last several decades – much of it attributable to the work of Fenway Health – there remain ongoing, urgent unmet needs in the communities Fenway Health serves.
In the spring of 2020, CEO Ellen LaPointe joined Fenway Health with a mandate to evolve and transform the organization to optimize Fenway’s impact in the face of ongoing shifts in the healthcare landscape and the communities they serve, so that it can continue to deliver fully on its mission. Embarking on a transformational journey to center racial equity in everything they do and undertaking an ambitious strategic planning effort to guide their work in the coming years, Fenway is working to leverage the extraordinary legacy of its past and the passion and capacity it has today to become the Fenway Health of tomorrow.
Fenway Health seeks an Executive Vice President of Racial Equity and Social Justice to co-create and lead a process of transformation toward becoming an anti-racist organization. This newly created position reports to the CEO and partners with senior leaders to cultivate a courageous culture of staff who are committed to growing and learning together. Requiring an inspiring, collaborative, courageous, innovative, and visionary leader with outstanding people and management skills, this individual will lead efforts to develop and implement an overarching vision for Fenway Health that works to eliminate systemic marginalization and promotes inclusion and anti-racist practices that will be evidenced through their policies, culture, and leadership. This is an opportunity to represent Fenway Health in local, regional, and national conversations and collaborations to advance racial equity and social justice, emphasizing Fenway Health’s commitment to deep engagement and ongoing change.
There are currently several senior level hires underway, making this an exciting opportunity to join a senior team that will lead a process of transformation at a critical time in this organization, in this community, in the country, and in the world.
