Bright Pink is successful because of the individual commitment and contributions made by each of our employees. We strive to create a workplace that fosters and develops the skills, abilities, and dedication of each team member. See below for all of our current opportunities.
Bright Pink is a national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women while providing support for high-risk individuals. There are 52 million women in the United States between the ages of 18-45 who have not been diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer. Bright Pink aims to strategically reach these women and educate, equip and empower each of them to be proactive advocates for their breast and ovarian health, to detect cancer early or prevent it altogether. Simultaneously, we provide a spectrum of support services, in particular for young women who are at high or elevated risk of breast and ovarian cancer because of a strong family history of these cancers or a genetic predisposition to them. Ultimately, we are on a mission to mobilize all women to take action and change their health behavior to be their best and brightest selves.
Bright Pink programs fit into one of two categories: education and support.
Brighten Up™ Educational Workshop, a signature program that educates and inspires young women to be proactive advocates for their health. Facilitated by one of our 50+ volunteer Bright Pink Education Ambassadors around the country, these 20-minute presentations, delivered at workplaces, churches, community centers and other gathering places, ground participants in the basics of breast and ovarian health, introduce them to early detection techniques, and equip them with life-saving knowledge.
Through our Emerging Medical Professional Program, Bright Pink is taking a unique and innovative approach to educating the next generation of women’s health care providers about the latest research and recommendations regarding breast and ovarian health, written by our Chief Medical Officer and vetted by our network of medical advisors. Rolling out nationally this fall, the program will bring the Bright Pink perspective on risk stratification and risk management to over 20 top-tier residency programs in 2014 alone.
Bright Pink’s Experiential Outreach program provides activity-based support forums for high-risk women around the country. Facilitated by one of our volunteer Bright Pink Support Ambassadors and centered around ever-changing activities like a yoga or knitting, these monthly support groups provide high-risk women with invaluable connections with other women living with and through similar challenges and experiences.
The PinkPal program is our one-to-one peer support program for high-risk women and providing an opportunity for more personalized mentoring support than our Outreach groups. PinkPal participants are matched with each other by our licensed clinical psychologist and, once matched, connect with each other in-person, over the phone or via email.
The Program Coordinator will support the planning and execution of all of our programs, with a particular focus on the execution of activities related to our Brighten Up Educational Workshop and Bright Pink University, our Brighten Up speaker training sessions.
