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 a Vice President of Communications to elevate and lead marketing communications through this critical time. With a deep commitment to advancing health and well-being for all of the communities Fenway Health serves, the VP of Communications will envision and execute a clear strategic communications strategy that will position Fenway Health as a transformative leader in intersectional LGBTQIA+ care and research. An articulate, strategic, and highly motivated communications professional, this individual must be culturally competent and highly fluent when working with diverse LGBTQIA+ constituents and stakeholders. The ideal candidate will be someone who is energized by the work at hand, and who will inspire others to engage deeply in communications efforts as a shared undertaking throughout the Fenway Health organization.
There are currently several senior level hires underway, making this an exciting opportunity to join a senior team that will co-create and lead a process of transformation at a critical time in this organization, in this community, in the country, and in the world.
