Ingersoll Gender Center is one of our nation’s oldest organizations by and for transgender and gender non-conforming communities. As we look towards our 41st year of working in our communities we are excited to continue building our work and expand our impact in 2018. We are excited to announce that we are hiring a full-time Healthcare Access Coordinator to take on important pieces of our current work and expand our healthcare access work in new areas.
We strive to be intentional in our hiring processes; each time we’re able to expand our staff we see it as an opportunity to interrupt the cycles of economic injustice that bar our communities from accessing employment, building skills and investing in the leadership development of our own communities. With that in mind we prioritize applicants that have first hand experience in navigating the oppressive systems that trans people face.
Think you may be the amazing human we’re looking for? Take a look down below at what you can expect from our workspace and team, the experiences we’re looking for, the responsibilities of the role, compensation and benefits and how to apply. Any questions can be directed to email@example.com - no phone calls please.
What you can expect from our work space and team:
- Our current space is in the Gay City building at 517 E Pike. You must use stairs to access our space but there is a lift available should you need assistance. You will have your own desk and computer but will work in an open office setting.
- We are an unapologetically trans led organization. There is no one way to be trans and we work with and support trans folks of all different genders, sexual orientations, races, ages, abilities, etc. We are looking for folks who will add to our rich understanding of trans identities and challenge privileged perspectives on gender and trans identity.
- While we have ambitious goals and a serious focus on implementing our mission to achieve our vision we encourage proactive self care - sometimes that looks like office dance parties or lunch time neighborhood food adventures. We expect folks to actively work to get their needs met and communicate when they need support.
Desired Experiences and Skills:
- A demonstrated commitment to our mission, vision and values.
- Experience in and/or working with transgender and gender nonconforming communities.
- Ability to speak, read, and write in English; strong candidates may have additional languages skills.

- Experience in participating in coalitions and community collaborations.
- First hand experience in managing volunteers and promoting leadership development.

- Experience collaborating with healthcare providers on community projects a plus but not required.
