POSTED Mar 13 2017
Inequality Media Specialist
Reports to: Program Director of the IPS Program on Inequality and the Common Good
FTE: Full-Time, Two Year Commitment (with possibility of extension contingent on funding)
IPS is a progressive internationalist think tank dedicated to building a more equitable, ecologically sustainable, and peaceful society. In partnership with dynamic social movements, we work to turn transformative policy ideas into action. As Washington's first progressive multi-issue think tank, IPS has served as a policy and research resource for visionary social justice movements for over five decades — from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s through the environmental, women's, anti-corporate and other movements to the anti-war and global justice movements of the 21st century.
The New England office of IPS, located in Boston, hosts the Institute's Program on Inequality and the Common Good, an initiative that focuses on the dangers growing economic inequality poses for our democracy, economy, and civic life. The Program maintains a robust online presence centered around the inequality.org website and a weekly email newsletter, develops educational tools for strategic social justice constituencies, and supports short- and long-term public policy campaigns aimed at reducing inequality.
IPS-New England seeks to hire an experienced professional for the position of Inequality Media Specialist. This position will build on existing IPS communications assets and deepen the reach and quality of our work on the "inequality beat." This full-time, full-benefitted salaried position will operate out of our Boston office in Jamaica Plain and report to the Program Director of the IPS Program on Inequality and the Common Good. We are seeking a two-year commitment, with the possibility of extension contingent on funding.
Preferred, but not required
