Founded in 2017, SheIS and its Collective Members came together to harness the power of sport because they saw sports as a microcosm of society - how we see and treat people in this space translates to how we see and treat people across society. As the conversation around women's equality became increasingly prevalent, the SheIS Collective knew that the sports industry held the power to help shape the conversation, but only if they could break down the current silos and work together to create change. Today, these efforts are beginning to scale and SheIS is leading the way towards evening the playing field for young girls and women everywhere! Our VISTA will create a long-term impact that will affect every crevice of the business. SheIS currently has two new programs that will develop and evolve over the next 5 years. A VISTA focused on establishing a system that monitors the involvement of each partner will help us establish the long-term sustainability of our programs. The main objectives for this project include 1) Strategizing, developing, and implementing a member onboarding tracking system that will allow us to better partner with collective members. 2) Managing the community outreach, which will include strategizing and implementing content and communication of programming on websites and social media channels. 3) Building connections with the SheIS Nation. Our VISTA will work closely with our leadership team researching and helping develop projects and funding opportunities for the organization. SheIS offers a remote working environment with passionate people striving to use the power of women’s sport to make change. We are looking for a VISTA who loves sports, and how women play and work in this space. Our VISTA has an entrepreneurial mind and heart and can demonstrate an ability to multitask, work proactively, and think outside of the box all while meeting deadlines.
