The Society of Family Planning (SFP) and SFP Research Fund envision a world where people have optimal reproductive health and rights. Among our accomplishments: nearly 800 scholars, researchers and educators are members of the SFP, we have supported the production of 16 well-regarded clinical practice guidelines, and we co-convene the premier scientific conference on family planning. The SFP is one of the few organizations committed to funding research on abortion and contraception, and in 2017, we awarded over $3,000,000 in grants. The SFP serves as the academic home to graduates of the Fellowship in Family Planning and we aim to achieve our vision by supporting research, education, advocacy, and professional development for an interdisciplinary group of top-notch scientists.

The SFP is seeking an outstanding Executive Director to lead this vibrant, innovative and committed organization into the future. Following a successful phase of initial expansion, the SFP is poised for its next stage of development. 

The SFP seeks an Executive Director who will implement the strategic vision of the Board of Directors, and is responsible for executing programs, the financial performance and viability of the SFP, organizational operations, and communications and partnerships. The Executive Director will be tasked with implementing our new strategic direction for 2018-2021, aligning our programmatic work to meet our mission, and supporting the overall health and wellness of the organization and its staff.

This is an ideal opportunity for a leader committed to advancing the field of family planning through science, education, and training.  We are looking for someone with a track record of leading a process of ongoing strategic planning, who ideally has demonstrable success working with a Board of Directors and previous experience in leadership roles in the field of family planning.

The SFP and SFP Research Fund is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive membership and staff and encourage applications from individuals from minority races, diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, and underrepresented geographic locations or academic institutions.
