FUSE Executive Fellow

Nationwide

https://jobs.crelate.com/portal/fusecorps/job/pzrcmmxhpxgdpy3yowfgx3hrph

 

The FUSE Executive Fellowship is an opportunity to develop and implement unique solutions to a community’s most pressing challenges. For 12 months, FUSE Executive Fellows work within local government to bring innovative approaches to a specific project. Each fellowship is designed to leverage private-sector experience to deliver results that have lasting impact.

 

Working with cities throughout the country, FUSE Executive Fellows work particularly on structural and system changes that will reduce disparities and accelerate economic recovery by focusing on issues that will have the greatest long-term impact for local residents. Focus areas include living wage jobs, affordable housing, access to healthcare, education/childcare, and justice reform.

 

FUSE Executive Fellows are placed at the executive level of local government working with senior leaders of departments and agencies. Prospective responsibilities may include thorough data analytics and research, developing enhanced operations and financial models, building change management and strategic planning processes, and/or building broad coalitions to support project implementation efforts.

 

Previous FUSE Executive Fellows have tackled a range of community challenges. Examples of their work include building an information system to protect renters from displacement in Oakland, criminal justice reform in St. Louis and Washington DC, and implementing a strategy to support immigrants in Los Angeles.

 

FUSE Executive Fellows receive ample learning opportunities throughout their fellowship drawing from the best practices of leading for-profit, public and social sector organizations. They also receive hands-on support from a host champion within the local government, as well as an executive coach and the larger FUSE community of staff, alumni and advisors.

 

PROJECT CONTEXT

 

America continues to confront a pandemic that has devastating economic consequences. The crisis has especially impacted communities of color, exposing long standing systemic inequities in our country. COVID-19 recovery will likely be slow, requiring innovative local leaders focused on addressing the pandemic’s lingering impact.

 

Come make a positive impact in your community. Join FUSE's Spring 2021 cohort, which begins on Monday, April 26. Apply now to be considered for one of our opportunities in Atlanta (GA), Austin (TX), Birmingham (AL), Durham (NC), Houston (TX), Los Angeles (CA), Milwaukee (WI), Pittsburgh (PA), and Washington D.C.
