Make a difference.
Join our team as the Healthy Environmental for All (HEAL) Community Engagement Manager! As the lead subject matter expert, you will help implement the state's environmental justice law, the HEAL Act, RCW 70A.02. You’ll also develop strategies and form recommendations on how best to integrate and implement environmental justice (EJ) principles into agency work with overburdened communities and vulnerable populations.
The HEAL Community Engagement Manager develops policies and procedures to guide community engagement on environmental justice work across the agency. This work requires direct community engagement and partnership building with communities; cross-sector and cross-governmental collaboration and coordination on the various obligations of the HEAL Act; and equity and environmental justice reviews of EPH rules, policies, and agency request legislation.
While this is considered a home-based position, significant time will be spent in community settings across the state.
