Fenway Health Seeks Dedicated, Diverse Community Leaders For Five Key Roles

This is a historic moment for Fenway Health. As we approach our 50th year, we are proud of the legacy we have built together, our long track record of achievement, and our deep commitment to advancing the health and well-being of our communities. While extraordinary gains have been made in LGBTQIA+ care over the last several decades, we must continue to advocate for health care equity and culturally compassionate care for all, regardless of their ability to pay. Now, we are searching for five new leaders to help guide that critical work into the future.

To aid in this search, Fenway has engaged two search firms to conduct searches prospective candidates. These search firms were vetted specifically related to their track record on racial equity within their own firms and in their search process, and the filling of these positions will be an opportunity to further diversify our senior level staff. Throughout this entire search process, we are centering our commitment to racial equity and social justice; candidates for each role must have a demonstrated history of leadership through an anti-racist framework and a dedication to uplifting the voices of BIPOC people. We have an extraordinary opportunity to make our Leadership Team more reflective of the communities we serve, and we are excited to start that journey.

Our five open leadership positions are as follows; please click on each job title for a full description of the roles and responsibilities, as well as to submit nominations or resumes:
