Deputy Director, Direct Impact

New York, United States · Direct Impact · 09062018


Direct Impact is Echoing Green’s experiential board leadership program. Launched in 2015, Direct Impact provides comprehensive leadership and governance training to private sector professionals through an immersive and experiential program. The ‘traditional’ Direct Impact program is comprised of retreats, workshops, and site visits, together designed to prepare individuals to serve on the boards of Echoing Green Fellows, and to ultimately participate in meaningful cross-sector collaboration for a lifetime. Programming also includes workshops and trainings that reach a larger cross-sector audience. Echoing Green expects to launch an immersive six-day version of Direct Impact in the 2019, which the Deputy Director will manage and execute. The Deputy Director is responsible for leading the overall implementation and growth of the program. The Deputy Director will report to the Director of Catalyze Ecosystem, who created and launched the Direct Impact program. The Deputy Director will be responsible for taking Direct Impact to the “next level” and will be closely supported and coached by the Director of Catalyze Ecosystem in doing so. The Deputy Director will manage the Direct Impact coordinator.
