Job Title: Issue Mobilization Manager
Supervisor: Director of Institutional Partnerships and Issue Mobilization

Travel Requirements: Approximately 20% of time may be dedicated to in-state travel, with occasional out of state travel for training or business.
KHF has recently adopted a new strategic framework that will require KHF and its partners to work more collaboratively and strategically than ever before. Significant financial resources will be deployed to encourage innovation and collective focus on specific, key issues facing Kansas. For example, KHF’s first “issue mobilization fund” likely will focus on hunger and food insecurity. Future issue mobilization funds could focus on mental health access, Black infant mortality or economic mobility.
Never has KHF used significant financial resources to mobilize our partners to work in concert, focused on the same health challenge and with expectations of major progress on these key civic issues.
The issue mobilization manager will be a key player in this effort.
This opportunity is for an outgoing, self-starter with experience and passion for bringing together organizations and individuals to tackle adaptive challenges facing Kansas communities. The ideal candidate:
