Position Description

The Evaluation Officer will work with the Director of Evaluation and Program staff to develop and implement high quality, credible evaluations and measurement that will help understand strategic progress and inform strategic learning and adaptations. This role will initially focus on supporting the Racial Justice and the Economic Justice Programs with their evaluations.

The Economic Justice Program (EJP) seeks to transform our economic systems, cultural norms, and beliefs so we can build an economy where all Americans can meet their basic needs, realize their aspirations, and live in dignity. The EJP strategy invests in building a durable, multiracial economic justice movement to address the underlying forces fueling economic inequality: unrivaled corporate power and financialization of the economy, declining worker power and growth of low-quality jobs, and the political and cultural ideologies that serve to condone and rationalize a neo-liberal economic system that leaves millions of Americans desperately struggling to get by in the wake of soaring income inequality.

The Racial Justice Program (RJP) seeks to confront and dismantle entrenched racism and related systems of oppression and build a racially just society in which Black people, in all their diversity, experience liberation, safety, and dignity. The RJP is committed to amplifying the expertise and agency of the people most impacted by racial injustice while cultivating social systems and conditions in which historically marginalized people will thrive. Because white supremacy and structural racism crosscut struggles led by marginalized groups, the RJP believes that focusing on anti-Black racism benefits and empowers a broad community of oppressed people, cultivates intersectional solidarity, and improves conditions for all.
