ABOUT THE POSITION
Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP) was founded in 1990 in direct response to the lack of strategic investments in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Its mission is to expand and mobilize resources for AAPI communities to build a more just and equitable society. As a national organization with eleven chapters around the country, our dynamic membership includes more than 2,000 members representing more than 100 foundations and corporate grantmaking institutions as well as individuals from philanthropic support organizations, giving circles and AAPI-serving nonprofit organizations throughout the United States.
Working collaboratively with the growing team, the Communications Director leads strategic communications efforts aligned with AAPIP’s vision, mission and values and builds the organization’s overall capacity to fully claim its unique role with a clear and consistent leadership voice in philanthropy. Reporting to the Vice President of Programs and working closely with the President, the Communication Director’s internal leadership roles include developing and stewarding the communications culture and structure to bring AAPIP’s strategic framework to life. This position serves as a first point of contact for news outlets and media and requires strong interpersonal skills, judgment and savvy. Experienced project management for proactive communications and responsiveness to the exigencies of unexpected events is required to succeed in this role. The Communications Director will have highly developed project management skills, including an ability to perform effectively under pressure, facing multiple time-sensitive priorities, all while maintaining the highest level of personal and professional integrity and standards.
