About the Organization - 100Kin10
To solve the world's most pressing problems, we need all of tomorrow’s problem-solvers to be equipped with STEM knowledge, skills, and inspiration. And tomorrow’s problem-solvers need excellent STEM teachers today to guide them. 100Kin10 unites the nation’s top academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies, and government agencies to prepare 100,000 new STEM teachers for classrooms around the country by 2021. To do this, we have built a new type of networked-impact effort that rethinks how organizations collaborate, learn from one another, and together identify and tackle challenges that none could successfully address on its own. On target to meet our ambitious 100Kin10 goal this year, we are launching a massive and participatory unCommission to identify goals for the future of the STEM education field, focused on the experiences and opportunities of students of color. One of these goals will become our next moonshot, continuing our decades-long effort to address the underlying reasons for the STEM teacher shortage.
About the Role - Chief External Relations Officer
As 100Kin10 prepares to embark on its second decade, we are seeking an exceptional relationship builder who will drive our fundraising and strategic partnerships to ensure we meet a new set of audacious goals.
The Chief External Relations Officer is a newly created role at 100Kin10. This position reports to the Executive Director and will sit on the management team which sets the strategic direction of the organization. This person will lead our work developing and maintaining relationships with key constituents outside of the organization. Specific responsibilities include:
The Chief External Relations Officer will manage a full time operations manager who will support the external relations work and will manage the organization’s budget. Much of this work has previously lived with the Executive Director with support from the management team. This person will also sit on 100Kin10’s Management Team and thus play an important role in organizational decisions and direction.
Our total budget in years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic was ~4.4mm and our total budget in 2021 is ~3.5mm, largely reflecting decreases in expenses related to travel, convening, and rent. Our budget will likely return to pre-COVID levels over the next 6-18 months. Our current funders are primarily grantmaking and corporate institutions.
This role requires a broad range of skills including depth of knowledge of fundraising best practices, nuanced external relationship development and management, strategy development and implementation, strategic communications, and multi-stakeholder coordination.
The person who fills this role can be based anywhere geographically but will, post-COVID, likely need to be present for team retreats every 4-8 weeks, most likely held in the New York City region. There is also likely some travel in 2022 and beyond for core work obligations, pending the return of safe air travel. In addition, we are open to hiring a phenomenal candidate who is looking to work 60-80% of full time. In the event that a candidate is hired at less than full time, we will work in partnership with them to adjust the job description accordingly. Anyone working 20 hours or more would be eligible for benefits.
Your responsibilities include:
The Chief External Relations Officer will possess the following competencies:
12+ years of overall professional experience in a role that includes:
