Sexual violence against children and adolescents (SVAC) is one
of the largest silent pandemics of our time. It is a problem that
festers in homes, online, and in communities in every country on
Earth. To end this silent pandemic, a NEW global networked
movement of survivors and allies is being created to drive
advocacy and campaigns as a powerful voice for transformative
Working with the direction of global survivors and allied
partners, this newly forming movement will demand an end to the
pandemic of sexual violence through advocacy for bold public policy
solutions and campaigns to shift societal norms, eradicate survivor
stigma and break the conspiracy of silence that enables sexual
violence to continue. Our movement is mobilizing
survivors and allies that are globally connected, nationally
coordinated, and locally grounded.
The Movement Executive Coordinator works with and supports three
key stakeholder and governance groups:
- Movement Action Team (MAT): This team of
movement staff and consultants (a.k.a. Secretariat) will drive the
day-to-day work of the global movement.
- Global Survivors Advocacy Group (SAG): This
group includes 15 survivor advocacy leaders from around the world;
it defines the vision and priorities for the movement.
- Global Steering Group (GSG): This group will
include representatives from the SAG and also large, global
organizations; it is a decision-making body and it will determine
priority campaigns and advocacy efforts.
The Movement Executive Coordinator’s direct supervisor will be
the Chairperson of the GSG. Initial members of the GSG are
selected representatives from The Army of Survivors, ECPAT
International, End Violence Lab at the University of Edinburgh,
Girls Not Brides, Together for Girls, We Protect Global Alliance,
World Vision International and representatives from the Global
Survivors Advocacy Group.
The Movement Executive Coordinator will coordinate and oversee
the movement’s inception, development and expansion, being both a
leader and a facilitator of this movement. As a senior leader, this
accomplished senior campaigner will have extensive experience in
advocacy and supporting collaborative international movements and
campaigns, with diverse groups and stakeholders, across a number of
continents. This movement is global in nature and is open to
the coordinator to be based in any location.
This global movement has received a funding commitment for its
initial 4 years, which is a rare and unique opportunity for a
start-up. A $10.3 Million grant has been secured from the Oak
Foundation that will flow through Together for
Girls from 2021-2025. As part of this effort,
the Movement Executive Coordinator will manage a campaign budget of
approximately $1.9 Million once allocated. The movement is looking
for other funding partners to expand investments as it establishes
and grows its strategy.
As the leader of a newly formed expanding movement, the Movement
Executive Coordinator will be a seasoned entrepreneurial leader,
who will support the development of the strategy. They will hire,
supervise, and empower key staff and consultants that will operate
on a Movement Action Team (MAT) to achieve the goals of the
movement. Experience working on ending sexual violence
against children and adolescents (ESVAC) prevention, healing, and
justice, would be interesting but not required. More so
