Upstream is a national nonprofit working to expand economic opportunity and mobility by increasing access to contraception and thus reducing unplanned pregnancy. Working in partnership with states, Upstream provides health centers with training and technical assistance to ensure all women are able to obtain the birth control method of their choice, in a single visit if they choose, at low or no cost.
Upstream is growing rapidly and is on track to achieve nationwide impact. After launching our first statewide initiative in Delaware in 2014, we have since launched projects in Washington state, Massachusetts, and North Carolina. We recently launched our fifth state project in Rhode Island, in close partnership with Governor Raimondo’s administration. By 2023 Upstream will have partnered with health centers that serve over one million women of reproductive age annually across these five states.
Upstream is funded primarily through philanthropic individuals and foundations and does not accept funding from pharmaceutical companies. Upstream’s budget has grown from $1.7 million just four years ago to approximately $51 million in 2021. Upstream’s work has also garnered attention from a variety of leading publications including The New York Times , Washington Post, The Atlantic, CNN, Vox, Forbes, and Marie Claire.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and passionate Sr. HR professional to help build the programs and culture that will continually shape our Upstream community for success.
As a consultative partner to our employees and leaders, we need an HR leader that has proven experience in using progressive HR approaches to drive engagement and improving organizational effectiveness. This role reports directly to the Chief People Officer and is a strategic thought partner on all People Initiatives for Upstream.

In this role you will consult with leaders on talent and organizational design challenges; engage in organization role development and manage projects from design through execution.
