Interim Executive Director, Puget Sound Sage
Posted by NPL Connects on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 12:00 PM PST
Puget Sound Sage is a dynamic and mindful multi-racial and worker centered think and act tank. We develop our policy priorities by grounding our policies in community-based research and vetting potential policy opportunities with people of color and worker led and serving organizations. From this process, we have advocated for and passed some of our region’s most exciting policies that promote climate justice, good jobs, equitable development, and leadership development in low-wage and people of color communities. Over the past 12+ years, Puget Sound Sage has grown from a one-person advocacy organization to a fully staffed, dynamic organization with a $1.8 million dollar budget and over fifteen staff. We are in strong financial position, we have talented self-starting staff, powerfully positioned board members, and strong community partnerships.
We are seeking a steward leader to serve as Interim Executive Director beginning in January 2020 with an anticipated end date of December 2020. The Interim Executive Director will work with the board, staff and our partners to execute the transition process, lead the search for a permanent Executive Director, work with the staff and board to steward donor relationships, and provide support in preparing the board and staff for strategic planning in 2021 by running an organizational assessment. Given that the Interim ED will be responsible for overseeing the permanent ED search, we are explicitly seeking applicants for Interim ED who are not interested in holding the permanent ED role.
