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 people of color for our new job openings. At this time, our highest priority is recruiting a Black individual for a clinical leadership position. We are redesigning our leadership structure so that Black, Indigenous, and other leaders of color at Opal will have power to make programmatic and organizational changes. We believe through this change the treatment at Opal could meet the needs of clients of color more effectively. In addition, we are making other internal changes to change the work culture at Opal to also be a place where staff of color 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.
Note: if you are Black, Indigenous or a Person of Color and you do not see the “right” job here for you but you are interested in working at Opal, please email email@example.com with your interest and career ideas.
We are now hiring:
We do not offer mental health or dietetic internships at this time.
