Desired Skills & Experience:
Seeking Answers for Women The Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus invests in and conducts groundbreaking research in women’s health and sex differences with a focus on cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Given that research on women’s health was largely not included in studies until the 1990s and has been historically underfunded, the CWHR is dedicated to funding the next generation of women’s health research and mentoring young scientists while educating the community at large. The CWHR is the only research-focused organization in the nation to look at women’s health and sex differences across the life span, from neo-natal through the end of life. The female body is not a variation of its male counterpart. Women have a different genetic makeup, including chromosomes and hormones, which contributes to differences in symptoms of disease and the course of disease. Responses to treatments and medications also vary between women and men. However, current diagnoses, treatments, and medications are primarily based on years of research conducted mostly on men. In collaboration with other national research organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, the CWHR is helping to change that paradigm. The CHWR’s mission is threefold. We fund research for both seasoned and young researchers, while augmenting their research and grant-attaining skills through a more personalized, mentored research experience. In addition, we engage and educate the community, health care providers, and policy-makers on women’s health across the lifespan. We are a collaborative and interdisciplinary team of 52 MDs and researchers with 22 distinct areas of study. We have a unique advisory structure with our engaged Community Advisory Board comprised of active and talented community laypeople, as well as an external Scientific Council, comprised of eminent scientists, who provide guidance for our scientific agenda. Additionally, we have a Medicine Cabinet who provides guidance as to how science and medicine intersect with the business community at large. The CWHR has an annual operating budget of nearly $1.2 million and a small committed staff; we now seek a new Deputy Director to join this vital effort. Position Overview The key responsibilities of the Deputy Director position include: • Partner with the Center Director to manage the growth and development of the Center as outlined in the six key elements of the recently completed strategic plan including the development of sustainable funding. • Manage the Center’s employees and its organizational infrastructure to support and advance its goals. • Develop, oversee, and implement an integrated program of outreach to establish the Center as a leading voice promoting awareness and change in women’s health. Qualifications Qualified candidates for the Deputy Director position will have experience in these areas: Outreach • Passion for the work of the Center and a strong interest in furthering the work of the organization locally, regionally, and nationally. • Enthusiasm for helping organizations grow and move into new levels of achievement and effectiveness. • Outstanding written and oral communication and presentation skills. • Proven ability to reach diverse communities and organizations and to explain complex subjects to varying audiences and stakeholders. Fundraising • Proven ability to raise funds to support a nonprofit enterprise, a willingness to engage donors directly, and the knowledge of how to build effective relationships with funders especially those in the corporate and foundation sectors. Organizational & Operational Leadership • Strategic and operations management skills with knowledge of how to develop, implement, and adjust strategic plans. • Highly organized professional with some experience in working in complex organizations with multiple levels of infrastructure. • Strong financial skills with ability to understand and analyze financial statements and to ensure accurate financial reporting of an organization’s activities. • Proven ability to develop and actively use metrics to track organizational performance and progress towards specific strategic goals. • Strong staff management and development skills and ability to motivate staff to achieve excellence. • Interest in teaching others and providing mentoring support to junior staff and faculty members. Organization Governance • Proven ability to partner with advisory or governing boards and to keep a board up to date on the issues facing an organization. Other • Experience in healthcare and/or nonprofit management is preferred but not required. • Graduate degree is preferred but applicants with a bachelor’s degree and professional experience equivalent to a graduate degree will be considered. • Willingness to live in and be an active member of the Denver metro community; some travel will be required from time to time. The Center for Women’s Health Research has a unique team of collaborative, collegial, committed professionals who make a difference every day. The incoming Deputy Director has the opportunity to partner with the Center Director and our advisory groups to leverage the Center’s varied resources to both educate the community and to advance scientific research. The Deputy Director will keep internal operations running smoothly while engaging multiple constituents and new stakeholders in understanding the nature of this groundbreaking work. How to Apply Qualified applicants who are energized by this unique opportunity are encouraged to apply for this leadership role by sending their resume, cover letter, and salary requirements to Carolyn McCormick of Peak HR Consulting, LLC at Carolyn.mccormick@peakhrconsulting.com. Additional information about the Center for Women’s Health Research and this position can be found at www.cwhr.org. The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus and the Center for Women’s Health Research are committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse student body, faculty and administrative staff. The university strives to promote a culture of inclusiveness, respect, communication and understanding. We encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities and all veterans. The University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.
