    How to Apply

    We are an Oregon-based nonpartisan nonprofit that designs and coordinates cutting-edge deliberative democracy programs across the US and beyond. We work primarily with local governments to bring new kinds of public engagement to their communities.

    We are a uniquely democratic organization – we manage our work collaboratively, on a sociocratic model. We value inclusion, representation, creativity, constructive communication, flexibility, continuous improvement, and an ability to work across differences. Our team is currently made up of four co-directors: two Program Directors, an Operations Director, and an Education Director.

    Healthy Democracy’s Program Directors manage our program development and implementation – and conduct ongoing outreach to cultivate new programs. This position co-leads program innovation, cultivates new project partnerships, and, in general, builds the movement for lottery-deliberation by communicating programmatic impacts to diverse audiences. During active projects, Program Directors design and deliver HD’s complex deliberative democracy programs. As with all staff positions at HD, this position shares in executive duties, including strategic planning and administration.

    The Program Director role at Healthy Democracy is a shared role held in common by at least two employees. Some responsibilities listed in this job description are fully shared, while others are collaboratively delegated to an individual Program Director based on each Director’s skills, experience, and interests – and subject to periodic reevaluation.

    The shared nature of this role allows for a high level of collaborative leadership, personal camaraderie, and professional growth for the individuals involved, while also providing the organization with a high level of adaptability and resilience. Professional redundancy isn’t the only goal; we seek a Program Director with a variety of passions and skills that complement those of their colleagues. Great HD Program Directors have come in many varieties, from many backgrounds – and that diversity is essential to creating programs for folks from every walk of life. Your unique qualities are your best asset.

    As for any small nonprofit, we are always on the lookout for folks with multifaceted backgrounds, interests, and skills, who will complement other members of staff. If you have additional skills that go beyond what’s listed in this description, please tell us about them! Over the years, HD has benefitted from Program Directors who have backgrounds in communications, web design, law, nonprofit management, and political organizing – just to name a few. These are conversation starters, not qualifications. They can only help your application.

    Please send a cover letter and resume to hiring@healthydemocracy.org. Applications will close at 11:59PM on April 21, 2024. The selected applicant will start ASAP.
