Founded in 1983, Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) is the oldest and largest AIDS Service Organization in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and is seeking a communications consultant for the Black Communities Consultant, to help CAP establish affirming policies, systems and program delivery, and provide training on affirming practices to all staff.
The Black Communities Consultant will help CAP improve its performance in the following areas:
. The organizations mission is to prevent HIV infections, support and empower people living with or affected by HIV, and eliminate HIV-related stigma and health disparities.
CAP is committed to health and social equity for people of all races and ethnicities. People of color, particularly Hispanics/Latinos, African Americans and African refugees, are disproportionately impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in our community.
CAP is committed to:
- Conducting culturally appropriate outreach and prevention services and testing people of color at or above the rate that they experience HIV in our community.
- Providing culturally appropriate housing and supportive services to people of color who access our services.
- Ensuring that low-income people of color who are HIV positive access CAP’s housing and supportive services at the rate they experience poverty in our community.
The Black Communities Consultant will help CAP establish affirming policies, systems and program delivery, and provide training on affirming practices to all staff. Specifically, the Black Communities Consultant will help CAP improve its performance in the following areas:
- Staff Diversity: Establish recruitment, hiring and operational practices that are attractive, inclusive and affirming of black applicants, staff and volunteers, including CAP’s Board of Directors.
- Staff Capacity: Increase CAP staff’s knowledge, understanding and abilities necessary to affirmatively interact with black colleagues and serve black clients by providing training and capacity building assistance.
- Community Relations: Establish and maintain meaningful engagement with key stakeholders and partners in the local black community.
- Client Services: Understand the service needs and how to reach and effectively serve the diversity of the black community and the black LGBTQ and MSM community in our local region.
- Data Collection and Analysis: Ensure that CAP is collecting and analyzing the right information to evaluate services in the black community and to inform program development and changes.
- Marketing and Communications: Ensure racial equity is reflected in CAP communications (e.g. collateral, website, media, etc.).
- Sustainability: Outline a 3 year plan that identifies short, medium and long-term goals with measurable benchmarks that will guide CAP in furthering and maintaining a racially affirming organizational culture and equitable client services.
