Updates from NoVo

NoVo is hiring a Director of Organizational Development and Leadership

02 October 2017

Since NoVo’s creation in 2006, our grants and initiatives have grown significantly in complexity and scale, and we anticipate continued evolution in the years to come.  Over this first decade, we have paid close attention to creating and maintaining an organizational culture that reflects our values of racial equity, feminism, inclusion, risk-taking, innovation and learning.  As we grow, we are aware of, and energized by, the challenge of deepening how we live into those values.

Specifically, we are committed to bringing a strategic approach to:

— adapting our processes and systems as our work deepens and our organization evolves;

— ensuring a values-aligned lens to all of our operations, including racial and gender justice;

— supporting staff to thrive and develop professionally both individually and as teams;

— learning together and sharing lessons across our programs;

— recruiting and carefully integrating new staff leaders who will push us and our work forward; and

— providing best in class policies and benefits that reflect our feminist values.

We know that this will not only reap rewards for our staff tenure, productivity and program excellence, but, over time, could also influence practice among other foundations, and help inform how we invest in our grantees.

This is the exciting work that will be championed and led by our first Director of OD and Leadership.   

Based in our New York office, this new full-time position is a senior leadership role, reporting directly to the Executive Director, serving on NoVo’s senior management team, and having a strong voice in shaping how we operate and structurally organize.
