Executive Director

A recent study shows that men apply for a job or promotion when they meet only 60% of the qualifications, but women and other marginalized groups apply only if they meet 100% of them. So, if you think you’d be a great fit, but don’t necessarily meet every single requirement on one of our job openings, please still apply. We’d love to consider your application!

We seek diversity of background and opinion, as we think these attributes improve the performance of our company and are the right thing to do for our communities.
