At KCSARC, we not only value diversity – we celebrate it:  We are committed to creating a team as diverse as the communities we live in, and we believe that the more inclusive we are, the better our team will be.  We are rooted in a foundation of anti-racism and equity, which must be demonstrated in word and action.  As a proud equal opportunity employer, we welcome candidates of all races, ethnicities, genders, abilities, identities, religions and ages with diverse viewpoints and experiences. We encourage veterans, LGBTQ+ and multilingual candidates to apply, along with candidates who have an EAD (Employment Authorization Document), regardless of immigration status.

Solid history, a track record of success, and innovation: The agency opened its doors in 1976, so we have a significant tenure in the field of sexual assault and a track record of successful program implementation, systems change, and direct service to clients. But we’re not a static service provider – we continue to innovate with programming such as prevention education in schools and the communities we serve, Dando Voz to reach Spanish-speaking survivors, and Project360, addressing the intersection of sexual violence and youth homelessness.

Tackle some big issues: When you work at KCSARC, you are part of a challenging and rewarding experience. We address the important issues around sexual assault, as well as some of the most critical problems facing our community right now. Many of these, such as sex trafficking and homelessness, have links to sexual violence.

As an agency, we’re committed to supporting fundraising success: Our Chief Executive Officer, 75-member staff, and 20-member Board of Directors are engaged as ambassadors. Our Board and CEO have significant fundraising involvement.

Participate in the joyful – yes, joyful! – aspects of what we do: Our work at KCSARC is hopeful and life-affirming. While there is no question that sexual assault is a serious subject, we empower victims and their families, and help them move ahead with their lives.

No better team to have by your side: KCSARC staff are positive, upbeat, talented, and passionate professionals who take pride in their work and in the role KCSARC plays in the community. The agency has a commitment to fostering workforce diversity and to encouraging innovative thinking, making for a dynamic, interesting group of people all focused on a single issue.
