Program Coordinator, Community Solutions For Health Equity (CSHE)

Join an organization at the forefront of health justice. Community Catalyst is a leading non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to advancing a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state and national advocates to leverage and build power so all people can influence decisions that affect their health. Health systems will not be accountable to people without a fully engaged and organized community voice. That’s why we work every day to ensure people’s interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and health care are made: in communities, state houses and on Capitol Hill.

POSITION SUMMARY

The Program Coordinator will provide administrative and programmatic support to the Community Solutions for Health Equity (CSHE) team.  Launched in 2019, CSHE seeks to make local health care systems more responsive to the needs of the community by elevating the voices of the people who hold the solutions. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this grant program provides grassroots organizations with resources needed to uplift their ability to organize members, build partnerships with other constituencies, and develop effective communication. By sharing their stories, experiences and priorities, people of color and those who are underrepresented can play a critical role in co-developing responsive policies and practices that drive transformative change within the health system.

The Program Coordinator will have the ability to work independently on projects and must be able to work under pressure at times to handle a wide variety of activities (e.g., funding proposals/reports, policy and press related documents) and confidential matters with discretion. The successful candidate is someone who can assess priorities on the go, “manage up,” communicate directly, respond to time sensitive needs with poise, and work efficiently and effectively in a team atmosphere.

This position is included in a collective bargaining unit represented by a staff union, Community Catalyst United, and specific employment terms may be subject to a future Collective Bargaining Agreement

 

SUPERVISION

The Program Coordinator is supervised by the CSHE Project Manager, with support from the Program Director of Community Solutions for Health Equity.
