Executive Director Job Opportunity

The Economic Opportunity Institute (EOI) is seeking a new Executive Director to 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 – making the state a better place to live, work, raise a family, do business, and be part of a thriving and healthy community.

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, has a deep understanding of and commitment to racial, gender, and economic equity, is a confident and experienced fundraiser, and (ideally) is familiar with Washington’s state public policy ecosystem.

In the 25 years since its founding, EOI has championed numerous public policies – and with the support of many partners and supporters – notched multiple victories benefitting millions of Washington residents 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.

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!
