The new Executive Director will provide strategic vision and leadership that centers equity in Preterm’s approach to patient-centered care; manage a complex, clinical services organization including high-level oversight of healthcare services, financials, operations, administration, and programs as well as a talented staff of 60; lead strategic new fundraising efforts to deepen existing funding relationships; deepen and expand Preterm’s community engagement strategies; and serve as a front-facing voice in state-wide and national dialogue about abortion and reproductive health. Ideal candidates for the Executive Director will bring an unwavering commitment to abortion access and the intersections of reproductive and racial equity, and a demonstrated understanding of and commitment to best practices for patient-centered care and clinical innovation. S/he/they will have at least twelve years of progressive leadership experience in a clinical services or healthcare setting, nonprofit organization, or other relevant context, and will bring a collaborative, collegial, and inclusive style and a proven track record and commitment to mentoring and coaching staff and building internal leadership with the ability to connect and inspire across stakeholders.
