We are looking for committed individuals who are passionate about driving impact.
We are hiring for the following positions:
San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA
The Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) is the coalition of the Bay Area’s governmental public health departments. Our unique collaboration of public health officials, senior managers and staff was formed to transform public health practice in order to eliminate health inequities.

BARHII’s Development Manager/Director will work closely with BARHII’s Executive Director to manage our annual fundraising operations. The successful applicant will co- design our annual development plan, supervise the grants calendar, complete significant grant writing, submit proposals, and complete all contracting when grants are awarded. The successful applicant will have significant experience in grant writing and exceptional project management skills.
BARHII is a stable organization with a strategic focus on sustainability. BARHII raises approximately $2 million annually through a healthy mix of foundation grants, membership dues, and earned revenues.

Impact Manager, Climate Resilience and Environmental Justice
San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA
The Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) seeks a Health Equity Impact Manager to lead our climate resilience and environmental justice work.
The Bay Area has experienced a wave of climate-driven disasters in recent years, including the most destructive wildfire season in California history, which occurred during an unprecedented heatwave and led to extensive power shut-offs. That’s on top of COVID-19 and a decade-long housing crisis.
These co-occurring disasters magnify the displacement and dislocation of communities and sap the ability of institutions to respond effectively. The impacts are particularly severe for communities that experience health inequities—the systemic and unjust disparities in health outcomes that exist by race, income, neighborhood, language, immigration status, and other factors.
BARHII’s climate change program catalyzes transformations in our public policies and investments, fostering new models for disaster response and resilience planning that can reverse long-standing health inequities, particularly for BIPOC communities.
We work with community-based organizations, public health departments, science experts, local and state decisionmakers, and others to make the Bay Area a model for equitable resilience action. For example, we’re shaping the public debate about the importance of equity leadership roles in local government emergency response and using our equitable resilience planning guidebook to inform region-wide efforts to address rising seas.
With California poised to make historic investments in resilience and a growing interest among government agencies to address racial, economic, and health inequities, we now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a more resilient, healthy region for all. Join us!
