Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies (Schusterman) strives for a future in which the United States and Israel live up to their ideals and achieve more just and inclusive societies. We work to advance racial, gender and economic equity in the U.S., as well as to foster a more joyful and diverse Jewish community. In Israel, we work toward a secure homeland for the Jewish people, a thriving democracy and an inclusive society that cares for its most vulnerable. We aim to drive and support long-term systemic change through investments in leaders, organizations and U.S. public policy.
Our culture is built on a foundation of principles that guide our attitudes, behaviors and interactions in the workplace. We look for people to join our team who are trustworthy, excellent, risk-takers – and who are committed to equity. Team members who are trustworthy look to build connections with others, are open to feedback and cultivate a culture of caring and respect. We strive for excellence by driving toward measurable results and consistently growing our knowledge and skills for maximum impact. We look to take risks by demonstrating curiosity and finding new, innovative ways of working. We strive to create a work environment rooted in equity where all members of our team feel a sense of belonging, are treated fairly and use their voices to effectively advance our mission.
The Senior Program Officer (SPO) will serve as the “connective tissue” within the GRE team, and between the GRE team, cross-functional organizational teams and external consultants. Through grantmaking and other support, GRE works to increase women’s and gender-expansive people’s: 1) political power and leadership; 2) knowledge, freedom and power to determine their reproductive lives; 3) economic power; and 4) safety and security from violence. The SPO will hold GRE’s work to intentionally strengthen both our team’s processes and a culture that reflects our values. They will advance GRE’s strategies by ensuring cross-initiative tools and supports – including capacity building and evaluation – are well-conceived, helpful and delivered with both efficiency and care. The SPO will join a team of six, and be based in Schusterman’s Washington, DC or New York, NY office.
