Maestra is an executive-level program that supports Vice Presidents, Presidents, CEOs, Executive Directors, and Trustees of philanthropic institutions in deepening, adopting, and accelerating their organizational and individual alignment and practice of Just Transition. Through peer learning and opportunities to engage movement groups and practitioners active in just transition application, Maestra program participants explore strategies for redistributing control, power, and resources in their philanthropic practice and institutions.
The Maestra Program Director is responsible for leading the development and implementation of the Maestra program and building out Justice Funders’ programming and field engagement opportunities as part of our Cross-Program Collaboration and Integration Team. Leading the Maestra program includes: (1) Leading programming that supports philanthropic leadership in applying the Resonance Framework—a guide that supports accelerating Just Transition by reducing philanthropic institutions’ extractive practices and increasing regenerative practices; (2) develop Maestra alumni programming; (3) Establishing and nurturing relationships and building with movements creating a regenerative economy; and, (4) Amplifying efforts of regenerative movements and redistributive practices in philanthropy across the broader field of philanthropy.
Due to concentrations of existing or potential institutional partners, we have a preference for the Maestra Program Director to be based in or near the Boston or New York areas, however, we also invite applications from other locations. This position will primarily work remotely, however, we anticipate that this position will involve travel once it becomes is safe to do so again in the future. The Maestra Program Director will report to Justice Funders’ Deputy Director and work very closely with other staff on the team.
