Statement by Keely Monroe, Board Chair for The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS):
“The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) is searching for a new President & CEO. Chitra Panjabi, our current President & CEO, will be leaving DC and the organization at the end of September to be closer to her family. We are grateful for Chitra’s leadership over the past two years which has helped strengthen the organization and Board, revitalize our financial position, and expand our programs. We’ve continued our work at the federal level, and greatly expanded our state policy, outreach, and communications efforts with the addition of new staff.
With Chitra’s departure we have an opportunity to hire a leader who can continue our expansion and growth, and build our intersectional vision for our work, the field, and beyond. SIECUS today is a national policy and advocacy organization that uses policy strategy and development, advocacy and education, and strategic communications to advance the adoption and provision of comprehensive sexuality education across the country. SIECUS’ vision is to create an equitable nation where all people receive comprehensive sexuality education and quality sexual and reproductive health services affirming their identities, thereby ensuring their lifelong health and well-being. Working in partnership at the national, state, and local levels, we seek to ensure that people’s diverse, lived experiences inform our policy and advocacy approach.
The Board of Directors is working with a Search Committee to find a new leader with the vision, knowledge, and experience to grow and deepen SIECUS’ work. Please help us find our next extraordinary leader by widely circulating the President & CEO job announcement.”
SIECUS affirms that sexuality is a fundamental part of being human, one that is worthy of dignity and respect. We advocate for the right of all people to accurate information, comprehensive education about sexuality, and sexual health services. SIECUS works to create a world that ensures social justice and sexual rights.
