New York, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
The New York-based Tyler Clementi Foundation, established in 2011 as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, has launched a national search for its next Executive Director. Established by the family of Tyler Clementi, a student at Rutgers who died by suicide following a high-profile cyber-bullying incident, the foundation promotes safe, inclusive and respectful social environments for vulnerable youth, LGBT youth and their allies in homes, schools, campuses, communities of faith and the digital world.
The foundation is funded by private and corporate donations and additional income-generating speaking engagements. Its programs include bullying prevention, supporting anti-harassment legislation, and a speaker series targeting faith, education and workplace communities. The Foundation also promotes educational research and programming through collaborative partnerships, including the Tyler Clementi Center at Rutgers and Teachers College, Columbia University.
The foundation is governed by a 12-person Board of Directors that includes members of the Clementi Family, as well as business and civic leaders. It is unique with its three-part focus on anti-bullying, LGBTQ equality and suicide prevention, promoting conversations before crisis with youth and families.
The Executive Director will be based in New York and will be responsible for working with the Board of Directors to take the Foundation to its next growth stage, identifying new strategic partnerships, directing advocacy efforts, managing all communications and creating new funding streams to sustain and build upon its current programs.
The Tyler Clementi Foundation is being assisted in its search by WBB+McCormack, a joint venture between McCormack & Associates, the nation’s first LGBTQ retained search firm, established in 1993, and New York-based Wesley, Brown & Bartle, a minority-owned firm with over 40 years of diversity recruiting experience.
