The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) has launched the CHCF Health Equity Fellowship Program. The mission of this two-year fellowship is to identify, develop, and support emerging Black, Indigenous, and People of Color leaders who have the capacity to become local and regional catalysts for health equity across California. For the pilot cohort, CHCF is hiring two fellows who live in California to work in one of the two project areas that are aligned with CHCF’s strategies for supporting health equity: Impact Investing and Homelessness & Health Care. Priority candidates include those who have professional or lived experience in any of the focus regions — Central Valley, Inland Empire, and Los Angeles — and/or those with experience serving Californians via safety-net programs. Fellows will be full-time, fully benefited, exempt employees of CHCF. Over the two-year fellowship, they will be trained to assume the position of program officer and receive professional and leadership development support. The annual salary will be $120,000.
Applications for the two-year fellowship are due June 28, 2021.
