  • Highly organized: Project management and prioritization are your love languages. You are a multitasker at the core, looking for ways to build simultaneously while being efficient. You recognize the importance of keeping the big picture top of mind, but manage the details eloquently.

You celebrate diversity and encourage others to lead with integrity and empathy. 
  • Data Enthusiast: Gathering and interpreting data is one of your strengths and is pivotal in building initiatives and problem solving 

Qualifications: 

  • 4+ years of Community event experience, including in-person and virtual events, managing event platforms, building event strategies, processes, and event logistics (planning and execution)

  • Project and/or program management experience
  • Vendor partnership & management

Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great addition, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point we’re getting at, it doesn’t hurt to take a chance and apply!

We are an inclusive employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
