Senior Associate, Climate Fellowship

New York, New York, United States · Programs

Description

OVERVIEW

Echoing Green seeks a passionate and detail-oriented project manager and relationship builder with 7+ years of relevant experience.  The Senior Associate, Climate Fellowship, will work to launch and support the new Echoing Green Climate Fellowship on a team that also supports our existing Global and Black Male Achievement Fellowships. 

ABOUT THE POSITION 

Every year, Echoing Green identifies approximately 40 incredible, ambitious, exciting potential leaders and then offers them two years of funding and support.  This year we have launched a new program to support emerging leaders with innovative ideas to tackle the climate crisis.  Echoing Green intends to be agnostic regarding various mitigation and adaptation responses – but seeks leaders for whom our model of seed funding and leadership development could be transformative.

Several Senior Associates are the direct liaisons to a portfolio of Echoing Green Fellows.  Each Senior Associate also helps lead on team-wide priorities including our annual application process, regular conferences, etc.  The team is supported by two Program Assistants. 

The ideal candidate, then, is eager to operate and execute, and also impassioned about generating new ideas to align fellow programs with Echoing Green’s broader social change agenda.
