Bloomberg Philanthropies works to create catalytic change across five areas of focus: arts and culture, education, the environment, government innovation, and public health. Our mission is to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people. Our approach is rooted in Mike Bloomberg's unique experience and success across the field of business, government, and philanthropy.
The Government Innovation programs build the capacity of local governments to solve problems effectively. Its initiatives – ranging from large-scale international innovation competitions to domestic efforts that help mayors hone their management skills and better use data in decision-making – equip local leaders with practical tools and approaches they can use to address local challenges. We currently invest in more than 200 municipal governments worldwide through grants, technical assistance, and participation programs. Our work environment is collegial, hard driving, and committed to outstanding results.
The Program Manager will play an important role in managing two programs in particular: the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative and the What Works Cities initiative. The Program Manager’s specific portfolio may change as our program composition evolves.
The Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative is a collaboration among Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Business School, and Bloomberg Philanthropies. Its mission is to inspire and strengthen city leaders, as well as equip them with the tools to lead high-performing, innovative cities. To date, the program has trained, inspired and connected 120 mayors from across the world, 240 senior leaders, and hundreds of additional city staff who participate in a variety of offerings for participating cities.
What Works Cities helps local governments improve residents' lives by using data and evidence effectively to tackle pressing challenges. We connect cities with the nation’s top experts in using data and evidence, introduce them to promising and proven strategies for tackling tough problems, and create a network to help them learn from each other. Together, these supports lead to better managed cities and better outcomes for residents.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
