Common Ground is looking for an Executive Director to lead us into a new, post-Covid phase that prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion both within the organization and in the services we provide our community. We are in the process of updating our by-laws, and also rebuilding our board after the pandemic prompted major turnover; we're looking for guidance in how to recruit and select the best possible candidate.
Common Ground is currently being led by a small board of directors comprised of practitioners and supporters of CGHA's work, but none of us has expertise in nonprofit management. We need a leader who can manage operations, supervise the organization, and center our mission of addressing health inequity. A qualified ED will insure that Common Ground can continue, and free up board members to focus on fundraising, outreach, and other priorities.
To provide complementary healthcare services--yoga, acupuncture, meditation, massage--on a pay-what-you-can basis to the entire community; to promote, through outreach, access to these services for underserved populations including the Black, Latinx, and immigrant communities, LGBTQ+ people, disabled and nontraditional yoga bodies, and a diversity of backgrounds and experiences.
