ABOUT THE POSITION
The Surdna Foundation—a national, social justice, family foundation based in New York City—seeks a Program Associate for its Inclusive Economies Program. The Program Associate will report directly to the Program Director for the Inclusive Economies Program on a three-person team that also includes the Program Officer for Inclusive Economies.
The Inclusive Economies Program is working to foster the creation of an inclusive and equitable economy in which people of color can maximize their potential as leaders, creators, and innovators across sectors. The program seeks to usher in a new economy – a new era of economic growth that is just and equitable – by focusing our grantmaking on efforts that (1) support the development and scaling of businesses owned by people of color, and (2) increase accountability and community voice in economic development planning, policy, and practice. To achieve these goals, Inclusive Economies will invest in two complementary program strategies that are centered on people and systems change: Business Start Up and Growth and Equitable Economic Development.
Salary commensurate with experience; the minimum starting salary for this position based on the Surdna Foundation’s established salary bands is $60,000 annually
