Description

Fetzer Institute (4585) | Appointment of Program Officer

Help us contribute to a more loving world!

Are you someone with a big heart, a great mind, an ability to turn abstract ideas into on-the-ground action, and a passion for being an active member of a community that cares deeply about “inner work for outer action”? Are you someone whose worldview resonates with our mission: to help build the spiritual foundation for a loving world? If so, consider applying for the role of program officer at the Fetzer Institute.

Inspired by our founder John E. Fetzer, we encourage each other to discover new ways to explore our personal spiritual journeys as we work toward transformed communities and societies in which all people can flourish. Each member of our team, and each of our partners committed to this common vision, brings a unique spiritual and/or religious lens, but all of us are drawn into community by our shared sense of sacred connection to ourselves, each other and our planet. Together, we inspire and serve a global movement transforming the world into a more loving home for all. Our work today is in collaboration with inspiring partners as we all work to reveal, inspire, and serve this movement.

Fetzer Institute program officers conceptualize, plan, and execute program work, particularly partnerships and convenings, that advance the Institute’s priorities in spiritual and paradigm transformation. We are looking to hire up to four program officers, each with the ability to work effectively in an organization whose core values are love, authenticity, trust, and inclusion. We place a high value on relationships; work collaboratively and with an orientation to listening and learning; and maintain an openness and commitment to the Institute’s mission and guiding purpose. The successful candidates will bring related work experience and a degree in a related area, or perhaps a specialization in an associated field; excellent project management skills; concise and persuasive written and verbal communication skills; and the ability to facilitate dialogue and deep conversation among a wide range of audiences. Furthermore, we are seeking candidates with the ability to systematically and efficiently synthesize trends, large quantities of information, and divergent perspectives in order to discern broader patterns and deeper insights. As such, we are committed to increase the diversity of our team, including diversity of thought and political views.
