The State of Vermont is committed to building on local, state, and national efforts to advance equity and social justice, and recognizes the important role government holds in removing structural barriers and increasing meaningful inclusion and representation. In 2018, State of Vermont created the Racial Equity Advisory Panel (“the Panel”) and the role of Executive Director of Racial Equity (“the Director”). The Panel and the Director are charged with ensuring that equity goals and objectives are incorporated throughout the State’s operations and providing strategic and policy guidance on equity issues.
We are seeking an engaging Racial Equity Education & Outreach Associate with a passion for inspiring others and representing the mission and values of Vermont’s equity work. The ideal candidate has excellent interpersonal skills and is committed to serving all of Vermont’s residents, visitors, and partners. The Associate reports to the Director and is part of the Office of Racial Equity (“the Office”), which is housed in the Agency of Administration.
The Racial Equity Education & Outreach Associate is a public-facing role that interacts with residents, visitors, press, and other sectors of government. The position focuses primarily on building training curricula, liaising with communities around the state, and supporting the Director with general administrative assistance. The Associate will help state and local leaders apply an equity lens to their work through education and close communication. Particular areas of focus relevant to Vermont include population growth, school policy and curriculum, environmental justice, workforce development, immigration, and economic development in rural or underserved communities. Due to the statewide scope of this work, the incumbent will need access to reliable transportation to travel frequently to locations around the state.
