Direct Report to Yael Rosenstock, Associate Director

CERRU is a diversity education center that provides nonviolent communication tools to bridge social differences and create a more equitable society. We use dialogue and undoing bias techniques to bring people together to discuss their views and listen to one another. Dialogue is a conversation in which people who have various and often conflicting beliefs, values, and perspectives listen mindfully to each other and ask questions to elicit more information rather than focus on making their point. They experience how to include differences, negotiate their social identities, find common ground, move forward with their own personal growth, and work with others to effect positive social change.CERRU is seeking individuals who share our values to further the journey towards equity.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

CERRU is committed to continuing our dedication to diversity in our spaces and encourages applications from people of all gender identities, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, ability statuses, ages, socioeconomic statuses, and so forth.
