About HEART:

Founded in 2010, HEART is a national organization that is building power with survivors, communities, and institutions in Muslim communities to increase sexual health literacy and prevent sexual violence. By offering accurate sexual health and sexual violence prevention education, advocacy, research, and training, HEART mobilizes people to become agents of change in their own communities and further connects them to a network to sustain their empowerment. Our vision is ambitious: to build a world where all people, including Muslims, are free of sexual violence and thrive in the communities they live, work, and pray in.

With ongoing programming in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Washington, DC, HEART has experienced rapid growth in the past few years. What began as a local, volunteer-run organization has blossomed into a national movement-focused organization with five paid staff members and a larger network of trainers, volunteers, and educators. What makes our team unique is that we are led for and by directly impacted people that represent the communities we serve: we are Muslims, survivors, caregivers, queer and trans, differently abled, people of color working at the intersection of Islam, reproductive justice, and anti-sexual assault advocacy.

Over the years, our in-person programming has reached more than 12,000 people nationally, and over 150,000 people virtually through our videos, toolkits, and publications. Our programming has been the source of healing, support, belonging, and leadership development for many in Muslim communities, especially those living on the margins, including survivors  of sexual violence, LGBTQIA+ people, and those who have experienced pregnancy loss.

About the opportunity:

As we enter our second decade, we are looking for an experienced and driven leader who can partner with the founding executive director as the organization moves to a shared leadership model, to scale and expand our work with strategy and intentionality while keeping a commitment to a racial equity lens at the center. 

Currently a team of three full-time and two part-time staff, with a $615,000 annual budget, the co-executive director will grow the organization both externally in its movement building and presence in Muslim communities, as well as internally in building a sustainable, liberated workplace. The co-executive director will serve as a public-facing thought leader, fundraiser, and trusted partner.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Organizational Strategy & Development
  • Financing & Fundraising
  • Alliance & Coalition Building
  • Representation & Crisis Communication
  • Staff Management
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Execution & Scaling of Programs and Strategy

This is a full-time position with a flexible work environment and schedule. Some evenings, weekends, and travel will be required. HEART encourages a healthy work-life harmony for its entire team and therefore has a 35-40 hour work week. The ideal candidate will have 5-10 years of professional experience. However, exceptional candidates who may not meet all qualifications are also encouraged to apply.
