The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) is a nonprofit, transdisciplinary organization of clinicians, advocates and health care organizations united in a common mission to improve the health of America’s underserved populations and to enhance the development and support of the health care clinicians serving these populations.

ACU developed its JEDI Initiative to serve as a resource for its individual and organizational members and other health care stakeholders working toward JEDI. In addition to providing educational resources and trainings, ACU’s JEDI Initiative assists organizations with assessments, strategic plans, staff training plans, and general technical assistance for JEDI efforts.

The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved is seeking a JEDI Training Specialist to help develop educational content, conduct trainings, and provide overall support for ACU’s JEDI Initiative.

ACU believes that underrepresented and minoritized communities must be centered in the work we do. We strongly encourage applications from people of color, people identifying as LGBTQIA, and disabled persons, as well as those who experience the intersection of belonging to multiple historically underrepresented groups.
