Senior Media and Communications Manager at the Kapor Center for Social Impact Job Listing at Koya Leadership Partners in Oakland, CA
The Kapor Center for Social Impact is currently a fast-morphing community of three organizations: the Mitchell Kapor Foundation (mkf.org), Kapor Capital (kaporcapital.com), and Kapor Enterprises. We are working to better align the tech-driven social impact mission and goals of these three organizations under a unified “Kapor Center” umbrella. The Kapor Center for Social Impact is relentlessly pursuing creative strategies that will leverage tech for positive social change. We are particularly interested in social impact for communities that have historically been on the periphery of access to opportunity, participation and influence in education, politics, economics and health.
We are seeking a special—perhaps unique, even—communications professional to fill a critical need on our team. We know you are out there: equal parts proud tech geek, journalist/writer, online contributor and social change agent.
Your job will be to help us devise and implement a strategy that will increase our presence in media (social, traditional, and otherwise) and articulate our position on the critical need to diversify the field of information technology.
Given that we are positioned at the intersection of technology and social justice, we are interested in working with a professional who has an expertise in planning and implementing tech-driven strategies and activities that will enable us to share – and ultimately influence – social impact efforts and movements.
