COMMUNITY SUPPORT CHAMPION
Sister cultivates teaching and tools for the Feminine Economy. We are the home of Feminist Business School and Embodied Business Consulting. We endeavor to transform our principles into business practices. We value integration, embodiment, pleasure, and purpose. Our long-term mission is the development of a feminist framework for entrepreneurship.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, engaged, and organized Community Support Champion to nurture relationships with our clientele, cultivate community in our FBS classrooms and online spaces, bolster the health of our internal community (the Sister team), and grow our global community of feminist entrepreneurs. This job is equal parts customer service, community organizing, teaching assistance, communications, and administrative support. You have a lot of hats and you are comfortable wearing them all.
You are a team-player, systems-thinker, cheerleader, and top-notch communicator. You help shape a company culture that is inclusive, responsive, responsible, playful, and supportive. You cultivate meaningful interactions and create a sense of belonging with our beloved clients, colleagues, press, prospective customers, and communities as we grow. You are able to connect with a wide range of personalities and are comfortable in email, online, written, phone, and in-person interactions. You create professional relationships with honesty, integrity, and healthy boundaries.
You have the patience and kindness to support students, clients, and the general public in getting their needs met within Sister, or direct them to another resource if they are not a good fit for our offerings. You can be assertive and firm, whenever necessary. You are adept at diffusing emotionally-charged conversations and de-escalating confrontations, especially in discourse around racism, sexism, classism and other forms of systemic violence.
You are responsible for managing all company communications. The general mailbox will become your purview as you filter and field inquiries. You will moderate classroom discussion threads on topics relating to feminist entrepreneurship, monitor our social media accounts, and maintain the online store. You will work with the Director to develop new strategies to deepen engagement with our current communities and convey our rich ideas and excitement for Sister to diverse audiences.
You have natural managerial skills and enjoy creating and maintaining internal systems that foster clear communication, trust, and consistency. You help Sister grow by creating a friendly, honest, and engaging environment that makes our work together richer, easier, and more fun.
A grounded, optimistic, and enthusiastic personality is a must. Strong writing ability, familiarity with feminist theory, and comfort adopting new technology platforms are also necessary. You are good at working with constraints, and coming up with creative solutions. You are fascinated with feminism and entrepreneurship, and excited to contribute to our vision. Your are eager to offer your knack for community building, excellent people skills, innate helpfulness, and your administrative aptitude to helping Sister flourish.
This position is 12 hours per week to start. Pay is $20-$25/hr DOE. The Community Support Champion works on-site in our Topanga Canyon office 2 weekdays, and from home 3 weekdays. Please note: this is a part-time employee position, not contract—you will have a fixed schedule. This position is expected to grow to 20 hours per week over the next year. We are looking for someone who wants to grow with it.
You are engaged with intersectional feminism. You are interested in gender/queer theory, and the feminine. You appreciate the renaissance of witchcraft and spirituality in currently happening fourth wave feminism. You are excited about our vision of feminist entrepreneurship and totally aligned with our mission.
INTUITIVE & DISCERNING
You are able to sense your needs and the needs of those around you. You trust your instincts and know how to discern, prioritize, and respond appropriately in complicated professional situations. You are self-directed and capable of managing your time and tasks without oversight.
You have regular wellness practices that nurture your physical, mental, spiritual, and creative health. You take accountability for your actions and your happiness. You rarely get sick but when you do, you take care of yourself and do not subject others to your germs.
