The David and Lucile Packard Foundation is where the Program Analyst will work. The Packard Foundation was established in 1964. David and Lucile Packard believed that along with universities, national institutions, community groups, youth agencies, family planning centers, and hospitals, foundations constitute a great American tradition that complements government efforts to focus on society’s needs. The foundation’s mission is to work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world. Through a recent strategic planning process, the foundation identified three overarching, interdependent goals to guide the Foundation’s work: Protect and Restore Our Natural World, Invest in Families and Communities, and Build Just Societies.

Foundation to fresh ideas, new skills, and diverse perspectives. The fellow will join a cohort of five other fellows at the Foundation working on conservation & science, families and communities, reproductive health, and civil society and leadership.
