We are looking for a Program Manager to join our team who is committed to improving health and safety and reducing inequities through a focus on prevention. This position will include responsibility for leadership, oversight, supervision, and implementation of projects; advancing practice and policy; and shared responsibilities within the organization. The primary focus area of this position will be on advancing our health equity work, including current projects; developing a growing portfolio of projects; and strengthening a health equity focus across the organization’s topical and functional work areas.
Prevention Institute’s approach to health equity focuses on understanding how root factors such as racism, poverty and other forms of oppression play out -- particularly at the community level -- and identifying strategies that support improved health and safety outcomes in low-income communities and communities of color. Our work focuses on making the case for an emphasis on health equity, developing practical tools and materials that communities can utilize, and building skills and capacity to address inequities in health.
