We work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world. Over our nearly 60-year history, we have worked with thousands of organizations and leaders in the U.S. and worldwide to advance progress in the critical areas of science, ocean and land conservation, climate change, women’s reproductive health and rights, and the well-being of children, families, and communities. At a time of multiple, intertwined crises globally and here in the U.S., the Packard Foundation began in 2021 a long-planned review of our grantmaking strategies. The first step of our process was to rearticulate our vision and mission, reexamine our organizational values, and create a strategic framework that builds on and honors the Packard Foundation’s past while advancing justice and equity in all that we do.
ABOUT THE POSITION
The Program Associate (PA) is the lead contact for our grantees when it comes to ensuring the grantmaking cycle and process is understood, effective, and streamlined. Through partnership with the grantees, an understanding of their needs, and strong knowledge of our internal processes, the Program Associate works with internal and external partners to contribute to Initiative and Foundation goals.
This role will be responsible for leading, developing, and implementing the operations for two of our grantmaking portfolios within the Global Reproductive Health Initiative (Global RH) – South Asia and Global. They will partner closely with the Initiative’s Deputy Director, research analysts, and a team of regional advisors in New Delhi, India to ensure effective implementation of our strategy and a positive experience for our grantees. The goal of the Global RH Initiative is to increase equitable access to quality reproductive health care such that quality reproductive health information and services are accessible and affordable to all who need them. We focus on supporting grantees’ work on essential services such as comprehensive abortion, voluntary contraception, and adolescent sexual and reproductive health. To do this, we work strategically across the global system to center the needs of women and young people and foster supportive policy, innovation, learning, and connections that will drive change. We believe that the ability of all people to realize their reproductive health and rights is vital to achieving gender equity. Anchoring this vision are the values for how we work as a team and in supporting our grantee partners – with humility, creativity, and care.
