We have a commitment to Opal being an eating disorder treatment center that does not feed the systems of oppression that breed eating disorders. Therefore, we are seeking to hire individuals that are wanting to make systemic changes in alignment with Opal’s values. Specifically, we are desiring a new Clinical Leader to join our team, who would analyze our programming and structures with a lens of race equity and anti-oppression. Opal is being re-created so that new leaders will have power to make programmatic and organizational changes. We believe, through this change, the treatment at Opal could meet the needs of clients from a variety of backgrounds and social identities more effectively. In addition, we are making other internal changes to change the work culture at Opal to also be a place where staff with different lived experiences and social identities can be supported, elevated and centered. We know that the white-centered leadership that got us here will not be able to make the transformational change needed to ensure eating disorder treatment is offered at Opal for all.
