In 2010, the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), a grassroots advocacy organization, launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, with a goal of knowing how to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. NBCC’s blueprint for Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® is a strategic plan of action for knowing how to prevent the development and spread of breast cancer. Since 1991, NBCC has been at the vanguard of the breast cancer movement – elevating breast cancer to an issue of national significance, leveraging billions of federal dollars for research and care, and empowering tens of thousands of breast cancer survivors to become effective advocates for themselves, and for all those at risk of breast cancer.
ABOUT THE POSITION:
As NBCC approaches its critical Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, the Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and External Affairs will work with leaders across the organization and movement to ensure NBCC achieves its goal of knowing how to end breast cancer. In partnership with the President, the VP Strategic Initiatives and External Affairs will play a leading role in planning for the deadline and designing NBCC’s strategy to end breast cancer long-term. This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is passionate about ending breast cancer to help shape the vision, strategy, and external presence of a premier national breast cancer movement.
