Entrepreneurs face unequal challenges even before getting in an investor's door. Data illustrates disparities in the social innovation sector.
Social Impact Jobs Oct 2012
Buzz in the impact investing field hit a high note with the SOCAP gathering last week in San Francisco. With it came announcements like the Omidyar Network, The Rockefeller Foundation, the USAID collaborating to promote new impact investing efforts undertaken by GIIN. I have also noticed more job opportunities in related fields, like this incredible position at GLG, applying investment principles and business strategy to social impact outcomes.
We are proud to be part of the impact investment movement, so much so that our Director of Finance is taking on a lead role in our impact investing initiatives at Echoing Green. Hence, we are seeking a new Director of Finance. In an attempt of shameless promotion, this role is wonderful for that special someone who has solid nonprofit finance experience, entrepreneurial flair, loves systems and processes, and wants to work with a high growth nonprofit. If that's you, we'd love to hear from you.
And that's not all. The following jobs were sent my way and I know someone in our community could be the perfect candidate. Explore. Reach out. And let us know what happens.
