About Chicago Foundation for Women
Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW) invests in women and girls as catalysts, building strong communities for all. CFW funds organizations working to solve the biggest problems facing women and girls: economic insecurity, violence, and lack of access to health care and information. In addition to grantmaking, CFW invests in developing women leaders and advocates, and brings together diverse coalitions to collaborate, share resources and develop solutions. Since its founding in 1985, CFW has invested over $40 million in organizations supporting women, girls, trans, and gender non-binary people across the Chicago metropolitan region.
About the Opportunity
The Human Resources (HR) Manager contributes to the success of Chicago Foundation for Women by providing a full range of professional-level HR operations, support, and change management for the organization. In addition, the HR Manager will provide support to select members of CFW’s grantee community, providing coaching and hands-on assistance when appropriate. The HR Manager will help both CFW and grantee partners embed a deeper gender and racial equity framework within their respective HR functions.
The ideal candidate will be a strategic and thoughtful problem solver, an adaptable change-agent and collaborator, and a respectful coach-like leader. The Human Resources Manager will have the unique opportunity to build the HR function and along with the management team, assist in providing people strategies and solutions for the organization in a time of rapid change during the pandemic and in the post-pandemic environment. The Human Resources Manager reports to the Foundation’s President.
