About the Opportunity

CGI is looking to bring on a writer who can clearly and effectively communicate our goals, approaches, and successes through a variety of formats (including talking points, invitations, session descriptions, briefing documents, etc.). The ideal candidate will be an excellent writer, with a strong track record in producing a diverse array of dynamic and eye-catching materials on a range of topics.

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convenes global and emerging leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. CGI works with partners to drive action through its unique model. Rather than directly implementing projects, CGI facilitates action by helping members connect, collaborate, and develop Commitments to Action — new, specific, and measurable plans that address global challenges.
