Become a part of The Equiticity Racial Equity Movement. 

Equiticity is a racial equity movement operationalizing racial equity by harnessing our collective power through research, advocacy, programs, Community Mobility Rituals, and social enterprises to improve the lives of Black, Brown, and Indigenous people in our society.

Equiticity is more than an organization, we are a movement working to wholesale transform our society and create liveable neighborhoods and cities for racially marginalized communities. We are delivering both innovative programming and transformative policies at the local, regional, and national levels to achieve our vision and realize our mission.

Equiticity is a place to explore inherent potential, crush perceived boundaries, and achieve what others consider impossible. Our movement is looking for people who are ready to grow, think, collaborate, dream, create, and lead. Our culture thrives by embracing creativity, innovation, and imagination. Our team seeks leaders, visionaries, and boundary pushers. At Equiticity, we value each person bringing their authentic self and their sharpened skills, along with their passion for challenging the status quo in our society.

Position Overview

This newly-created position will be responsible for envisioning, developing, executing, managing, and evaluating a comprehensive fundraising and development strategy for the organization.
