  • Passion for social justice
  • Excellent team player; high willingness to go the extra mile
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Currently studying or recently completed graduate (PhD) degree (or equivalent) with considerable coursework in health care/policy, health equity, social determinants of health; qualitative research, statistics, economics, finance

About Us:

Public Equity Group works with partners poised to make a demonstrable difference on the “big issues of the day,” and in the lives of disadvantaged populations. In particular, we look for clients with the following qualities:

  • Deep equity/justice commitment and compatible organization values
  • High potential for national or global impact, scale, and/or replication
  • Strong leadership (strategic thinking, management, implementation)
  • High organization capacity to implement (staff and board quality; planning, monitoring, operations, and systems quality)

Public Equity Group is mobilized to help emerging and established social change organizations develop and implement high-impact strategies, best-practice management approaches, and model programs and campaigns that drive change on the ground, in the field, and around the globe.

We engage in compassionate and accessible — but rigorous — data-driven strategy and implementation, often culminating in summary business or strategic plans detailing the client’s 3-5+ year goals, programmatic priorities, and organization.

We forge deep, long-term relationships with leaders and organizations at the forefront of their respective fields, supporting their evolution, and celebrating their successes via case studies, media, and more — long after the engagement has ended. By doing this, we aim to strengthen and empower our partners, helping them to build demonstrably better models for change and spur dramatic progress in key areas of concern, ultimately driving improvements in the quality of life of vulnerable populations in the United States and elsewhere.
