The Director of Climate Programs will explore all available opportunities to achieve the organization’s strategic objectives, focusing on how best we can reduce emissions at the regional and local levels.

Plan and meet deadlines. Maintain a flexible work schedule to meet the demands established by management. Demonstrate initiative and work as a team player.

    Have a flexible and positive attitude. Approach work with the spirit of “yes,” and adapt quickly to change.

    Frequent local travel including occasional overnight or out-of-state travel will be required for meetings with partners, donors, reporters/editorial boards, and for conferences. Must be available for occasional evening and weekend work.

    Qualifications
