ABOUT THE POSITION
The Programs and Knowledge Director leads the execution of PEAK Grantmaking’s events and sector convenings so that they elevate effective, efficient, and equitable philanthropic practices, advance our Principles for Peak Grantmaking, and ensure that our programming and resources encourage funders to adopt improved grantmaking practices and advocate for sector transformation.
This role combines two important functions: (1) developing PEAK’s knowledge base of the current and changing state of practice in the field and (2) leading and executing opportunities and resources that advance equity and our theory of change. The role requires the key skills of content creation, effective speaking and facilitation, developing educational content along with curating content complementary to our work, and deeply listening to members as resources for content creation. Along with the President and CEO, this role helps raise the profile and visibility of PEAK Grantmaking’s work in effective practices and implements evaluation and measurement of the practices that are changed as a result of our advocacy and educational efforts.
The Director manages the Programs Team and must have expertise in diversity, equity, social justice, and inclusion principles, association learning, consultant and vendor management, and the delivery of educational programming. The Director works collaboratively across internal teams, with volunteer advisory groups, and with external partners to elevate the importance of an equity lens in advancing equitable grantmaking practices that are values-aligned.
