ORGANIZATION SUMMARY: Praxis International, Inc. is a nonprofit research and training organization that works toward the elimination of violence in the lives of women and children. We work with local, statewide, and national reform initiatives to bridge the gap between what people need and what institutions provide. Since 1996, we have worked with advocacy organizations, intervention agencies, criminal justice agencies and inter-agency collaborations to create a clear and cooperative agenda for social change in their communities. Praxis developed the Institutional Analysis (formerly Praxis Safety and Accountability Audit) as a method of examining institutional practices and their impact on women’s and children’s lives, and have worked with numerous communities to conduct audits of their institutional responses to violence against women, and child abuse cases. For the past 13 years we have implemented training and technical assistance projects for grantees of the Office on Violence Against Women, U. S. Department of Justice.
POSITION SUMMARY: The Program and Training Specialist will work closely with the Program Director to develop programming and training content and materials, and to deliver training sessions at in-person events and via audio- and video-conference sessions, for communities working to end all forms of violence against women.
POSITION REQUIREMENTS: We are looking for an excellent thinker, speaker and writer, with advocacy experience, who can develop and deliver programs and training on advocacy and intervention strategies to end all forms of violence against women. The ideal candidate is an experienced trainer with substantial advocacy experience working to end violence against women or related social injustices; substantial training experience and skills, and strong writing skills. Experience working toward social change in marginalized communities is a plus. Experience in the violence against women field is preferred but not required. Out-of-state travel is required.
This is a full-time, salaried position with an annual salary of $50,000-$60,000, dependent upon qualifications, with benefits (holiday/vacation/sick leave, health/dental/disability insurance, and retirement contributions).
