The Executive Director (ED) brings energetic leadership to move this mission forward, with deep commitment to social justice and racial equity in the food system and beyond. The ED provides cohesive and seamless organizational leadership, management and oversight of programs, administration and fundraising. The ED supports a healthy, engaged workplace culture that includes exploring and implementing creative models of shared leadership and staff development.
The new ED’s leadership style should be positive, energetic, balanced, humble, transparent, inspiring and collaborative. The ED should be able to skillfully engage with diverse constituencies, show cultural competency and an openness to on-going learning. The ED will understand and navigate a range of power dynamics well, including those rooted in racial or gender privilege and global inequalities. The ED should have an ability to deftly navigate working with local and international coalitions and networks made up of many different types of organizations.
