Message from Board President
Dear Rainbow Community,
It is with both sadness and appreciation that I must announce that Jack Rednour-Bruckman will be resigning as the Executive Director of Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County.
Jack joined Rainbow briefly at the beginning of 2019 as a Board Member, became the consulting Interim Director in April, and took over the Executive Director role officially on May 1st of this year. They had committed to lead the organization until at least October 1, after a year of challenging transitions and change for the organization. While deciding to renew their agreement, Jack was offered a dynamic position to engage in much needed political advocacy in Southern California and ultimately decided to embark on this new phase for their career and social justice work. The whole board and staff wish them well in this future endeavor!
In a short time, Jack rallied, with staff and board support, to execute a successful Pride celebration in June, has facilitated the implementation of Rainbow’s new strategic plan, assured the continuation of major grants and contracts, and helped to improve and stabilize operations and organizational processes.
Jack leaves Rainbow in a very strong place for continued growth, and we sincerely thank them for their leadership. Their last day will be Friday, October 18 th .
During the hiring process for a new Executive Director , our staff leadership will oversee operations, continue meeting grant and contract obligations, and most importantly service client and community needs during this next phase. The board and key staff members are already engaged in the process to permanently fill the position as soon as possible. We are confident that, with support from the Board of Directors, the staff will make this a smooth transition for our clients, partners, and supporters.
If you have any questions about the transition or hiring process, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Board President at email@example.com .
