President, Equal Measure

The Organization

Established in 1988 as the OMG Center for Collaborative Learning—and becoming a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization in the early 1990s—Equal Measure has evolved into a leading professional services consulting firm working at the forefront of field innovation to strengthen partners’ ability to design, implement, evaluate, and communicate the program, policy, and systems change they seek. Equal Measure is one of the top recipients of nonprofit and philanthropic infrastructure grants, and one of the few recipients that serve partners across the mission-driven sector.  As a trusted partner and “critical friend” to its clients, Equal Measure provides design, evaluation, capacity building, technical assistance, and communications services, combining insights from mixed-method and interdisciplinary approaches, and grounded in the practicalities and reality of social change.

Position Overview

We help our clients shift systems, policies, and practices to make communities stronger, healthier, more equitable, and more inclusive.

Equal Measure, a nationally renowned nonprofit contributing to powerful systems and social transformation across the nonprofit and philanthropic sector, invites applications and nominations for its next President. Equal Measure’s leadership across the field inspires clients and partners to take action to build capacity, advance cutting-edge trends, and identify new solutions to achieve greater community and social impact.

At this important transition point in the firm’s 32-year history, Equal Measure is exceptionally strong and vibrant, with a steady growth trajectory and a flourishing and stable mission-aligned culture and team. Following the successful tenure of Meg Long, the outgoing President, Equal Measure seeks a new leader to build on the firm’s sound strategic plan, outstanding and diverse team and board, steady financial position, and robust pipeline of business.

Through high-quality thought leadership, Equal Measure’s new President will continue and strengthen Equal Measure’s position in the field as a partner to the social and mission-driven sector. Equal Measure’s thought leadership and work will continue to address and help remove structural barriers to equality rooted in racial, ethnic, and gender inequities, and bring the firm’s voice to crucial conversations that will shape the field in the coming decade.

Equal Measure is based in Philadelphia, PA, and supports clients and partners across the country. It is composed of a talented interdisciplinary staff of 26, a diverse and engaged board with multi-sector experience, and has an annual budget of close to $6 million.
