Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ (PPIL) history is grounded in providing access to, and delivery of, reproductive healthcare.

The President & CEO will provide executive management of board relations, program delivery, resource development (including fundraising), external collaboration, finance and budgeting, and governmental affairs. He or she will manage and administer a $30 million organization, help with the launch of a capital campaign which will result in four new health centers, think strategically about how to balance mission and sustainability, raise resources in support of the mission, and serve as a leader for women’s rights to reproductive choice and care in the Midwest.

Experience in healthcare is preferable, though not a requirement. The successful candidate will exhibit an understanding of the local and national healthcare environment and provide thought leadership as to how PPIL can capitalize on the ongoing changes for the benefit of both the organization’s financial success and the healthcare needs of its patients.
