The Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy consists of two schools, the School of Public Policy and Management and the School of Information Systems and Management, and offers an academic experience unlike any other. Heinz College prepares students with a unique ability to conduct careful and objective analysis of meaningful data, to understand and demonstrate the power of information technology, and to lead and implement change in managerial and policy contexts.
The country faces a global pandemic, climate change, systemic racism and a generational economic downturn. At the same time, innovation in artificial intelligence, robotics, and other technologies can play a critical role in addressing these and other societal challenges. To do so, technological change must be driven through new public policy, partnerships and research.
Established in 2018, The Block Center for Technology and Society at Carnegie Mellon University focuses on how emerging technologies will alter the future of work, how AI and analytics can be harnessed for social good, and how innovation in these spaces can be more inclusive and generate targeted, relevant solutions that reduce inequality and improve quality of life.
The impacts of our work and the rapid growth of The Center leads us to seek a dynamic Program Manager. This essential role, reporting to the Executive Director, is to oversee much of the management and operations that support our mission while providing critical leadership for our continued growth.
