Executive Director at End Rape On Campus

 

ABOUT END RAPE ON CAMPUS

Since its founding in 2013, End Rape on Campus (EROC) has worked to end campus sexual violence. In service of its vision, a world in which each individual has an educational experience free from violence, the organization provides direct support to survivors and their communities; promotes prevention through education; and supports policy reform at the campus, local, state, and federal level.

Established by students for students, with a particular focus on ensuring survivors of sexual assault on college campuses have access to the protections of Title IX and the Clery Act, EROC has emerged as a prominent voice and leader in a growing movement to eradicate sexual violence. Through creative  initiatives such as Hands Off IX and the Campus Accountability Map, EROC has advocated both for and with survivors; and cemented its reputation for bold tactics and effective action during a period of dramatic change in the relevant cultural landscape.

EROC is now looking for its next Executive Director (ED) to bring this dynamic enterprise through its next era of growth and impact by developing EROC’s organization and culture, fostering and building new partnerships, and providing visionary and strategic leadership to the organization and the field.

The position will be based at EROC’s office in Washington, D.C.

 

ABOUT THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ROLE

The Board of Directors seeks a seasoned executive with a national reputation for leadership in the social justice arena to become EROC’s next ED.  This individual will be an exceptional strategist and manager, and a highly effective representative of EROC and its mission. Internally, the ED will oversee and ensure a high standard of performance and professional development across each of EROC’s core areas of operations: development, policy, programming, communications and operational systems. Externally, the ED will represent and promote EROC’s high-profile brand and reputation with integrity, vigour, and style.  The ED will be a talented fund raiser and persuasive spokesperson on behalf of the organization, its programs and initiatives.   

The ED will be passionate about leveraging her or his professional expertise to drive positive change and advance the national conversation around sexual violence prevention, policy, and survivor support.  While the ED will be expected to maintain and strengthen EROC’s leadership in coalition with other entities in the sexual violence arena, the Board is especially interested in candidates with background and experience in other types of social justice organizations and movements, such as restorative justice, workers’ rights, or race or gender equity.
