EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

ChangeLab Solutions, a leading national organization that helps to create healthier communities for all through innovative laws and policies, seeks a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Since its founding in 1997, ChangeLab Solutions has played a major role in changing public health practice from primarily focusing on patient education and clinical care delivery to a dynamic and inter-sectoral approach to policy, systems, and environmental change. ChangeLab Solutions has driven major successes across a range of critical public health issues, including its development of anti-tobacco policies which helped California save $134 billion in health care costs, and their widespread adoption has contributed to a 25% drop in tobacco-related deaths.

Under the leadership of Marice Ashe, ChangeLab Solutions’ Founder and Chief Executive Officer, the organization has contributed major innovations to public health practice and is experiencing a period of tremendous growth and opportunity. The organization is now at a pivotal moment, poised to welcome a new CEO who will usher in an exciting new era and advance national leadership that builds the field of law and policy in addressing the social determinants of health and creating equity. The new CEO will bring a proven record of success driving law and policy change to promote the social determinants of health; nuanced understanding of health equity and the drivers that determine the health of communities; and strong organizational leadership experience to lead ChangeLab Solutions into its next phase of work.
