This person will recruit and manage a team of volunteers who will serve as coordinators of the content areas , plus other volunteers who will work with those coordinators to keep the content relevant, diverse, and timely to the discussions of the field at large and appropriate to the annual GLL theme. Each of these coordinators will be required to solicit content  from other members/non-members so as to populate these areas of our website.

Coordinator, Limelight Interviews

    • Limelight interviews are written or video interviews with women and allies in the field who have interesting stories or inspiration to share. The coordinator will design a format that makes us unique from the other interviews available in our field and will ensure we provide new interviews on a regular basis. The coordinator will conduct the necessary outreach to potential interview sources and seek diverse voices and stories within the field. Reports to the Director, Vibrant Content (member focus).

The coordinator will conduct the necessary outreach to potential honorees and seek diverse voices, honors, and good work done in the field.  Reports to the Director, Vibrant Content (member focus).

Coordinator, In the Vault

This is meant to be impactful by creating a safe space to discuss important  issues integral to our work and seek knowledgeable support. This coordinator will develop the space and the mechanism for receiving and responding to questions. This person will also manage responses to submitted questions (either from a team of responders or from League leaders at large) and ensure regular content is provided.

Director, LINK Local programs

    • Similar to and working closely with the Director of LINK Regional Programs, this person will focus on building League Information and Networking (LINK) events outside of regional events and conferences.  The Director, local programs will identify and engage LINK leaders to host informal gatherings that embody and advance the League’s mission, vision and values.  Open to members and non-members alike, LINK events require certain elements but have a flexible structure to allow for unique and dynamic local gatherings.  Increasing the number, variety and quality of local LINK events is central to this position.
