Careers - Common Counsel Foundation

Color Congress Initiative is hiring an Associate!

The Color Congress Initiative is a fiscally sponsored project of the Common Counsel  Foundation that aims to resource and support transformational collaboration and  field building among People of Color (POC) led and serving organizations in  documentary across the U.S. and territories. Our overarching goal is to support this  POC documentary field ecosystem so it can be an even greater force in shaping the  future of the field and a more powerful force for social change.

The Color Congress Initiative (CCI) is seeking to fill a full time associate-level position  to support the implementation of this emergent initiative. The Associate will work  with CCI’s two Co-Directors to support the implementation of a field-led program  that will address issues that POC-led and serving organizations in the nonfiction  space identify as priorities. S/he/they will be responsible for grantmaking, event  planning and other administrative logistics. This person will also help to support  online and in-person community building. This is not an entry level position; while  there are many administrative duties, the associate will be a thought partner in the  strategic implementation of the program and assignments. This will be a dynamic  role for a self-starter in an exciting new values-driven initiative with a number of  moving parts.

The Associate will report directly to one of the Co-Directors. This will be a remote  position with required travel (low to moderate and only when safe to do so).

This is a Full-time (40 hour a week) non-exempt position. The hourly rate ranges from $31.25 – $33.65 with no room to negotiate above this rate. We offer a  competitive benefits package which includes: medical, dental, vision and life  insurances, non-elective employer contributions to a 401 K retirement saving plan,  and generous PTO. Start date is November 15, 2021.

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, three references to  [email protected].
