Salary: $137,838 to $155,838 Apply by: January 5, 2024
The Economic Opportunity Institute (EOI) is seeking a new Executive Director. This individual will lead an organization dedicated to making tangible and concrete progress in changing how Washington’s economy and public policies work in people’s daily lives. Our goal is to make the state a better place to live, work, raise a family, do business, and be part of a thriving and healthy community.
Who We’re Looking For:
The person in this position will lead organization-wide strategic projects that will shape both how EOI works and the policy initiatives it undertakes. It is an ideal role for someone who is a highly relational team-builder and a skilled supervisor. It’s also a perfect fit for someone with a deep understanding of and commitment to racial, gender, and economic equity and who is a confident and experienced fundraiser.
Ideally, our new Executive Director would also be familiar with Washington’s state public policy ecosystem.
In the 25 years since its founding, EOI has championed countless public policies, all with the stated goal of improving our state. With the support of many partners and supporters, we’ve also notched multiple victories benefitting millions of Washington residents. Those wins include policies in the areas of paid family medical leave, healthcare, equal pay and overtime protections, paid sick and safe days, progressive revenue/tax reform, retirement security, minimum wage increases, and early childhood education.
What We Need:
Now, the organization is ready to re-examine its work – and build upon it. If a leadership role in an organization helping influence public policy for the benefit of working people and families residing in Washington sounds exciting, consider learning more about this opportunity.
