Colorado Vaccine Equity Program and Outreach Manager
Immunize Colorado and the Colorado Vaccine Equity Taskforce (CVET) are currently hiring a Colorado Vaccine Equity Outreach Manager. The Manager will oversee a new statewide grant-funded community of practice initiative to provide shared learning and strategies to more than 30 community-based organizations focused on addressing the disproportionate impact of COVID on vulnerable communities and ensuring access and acceptance of COVID vaccines. This will be done in partnership and with input from members of the Colorado Vaccine Equity Taskforce. The Outreach Manager will be responsible for leveraging the voice and expertise of the Taskforce members to develop and implement a statewide strategic plan to uplift COVID vaccine outreach and engagement programs. The Manager will utilize research data, needs assessments and stakeholder engagement strategies to advance high impact goals and objectives to improve access to and acceptance of COVID vaccines in highly impacted communities.
Interested candidates should have knowledge about communities highly impacted by COVID-19 and have experience providing culturally competent and trusted information and/or services in community settings. Candidates who have direct experience with COVID-19 response and relief policy and/or activities at the community level (particularly in developing community-level education and outreach campaigns, coordinating vaccine trust building efforts and fostering low-barrier opportunities for immunization) will be preferred.
The Outreach Manager will manage Immunize Colorado’s programs and contribute to the strategic impact of the organization. The Outreach Manager may also have some supervisory duties.
Immunize Colorado and the Taskforce will serve as backbone organizations for this statewide project, and this position will be responsible for managing all aspects of the project including the education strategies and messages, community engagement methods and monitoring and reporting on the impact of the interventions.
