Vacancy: Program Coordinator

Title: Program Coordinator

Program: The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center

Duration: 12 months

Location: Lebanon


The Arab Foundation for Freedom’s and Equality (AFE) goal is to support the movement for sexual rights and protections across MENA. AFE broadens participation in sexual rights by investing heavily in grassroots civil society, building the capacity of nascent activists, groups and organizations, focusing on information sharing and security and protection.

About the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center:

Despite the proliferation of research, writing, and discussion on gender and sexuality, much of this work remains unknown or is more generally inaccessible to those who would benefit the most. In large, this is due to a lack of coordination and communication between activists and researchers, which then prevents said parties from benefiting from knowledge already produced—in particular work that has been produced in Arabic. Further still, because of the lack of communication, research and other materials on the same select topics are then constantly reproduced time and time again. The production (and preservation) of new and sophisticated research is essential to our understanding of sexuality and gendered identities and their regulation in order to build sound, evidence-based strategies for sexual and bodily rights and justice across the Arab world.


We are looking for a responsible, detail-oriented, and highly motivated individual who has experience in quantitative data analysis, coordinating projects, managing external and internal communications, and following-up with different stakeholders.
