As TCI enters this next chapter after the departure of its founding President & CEO, it seeks an exceptional individual to lead the organization to achieve even greater levels of strategic influence, impact, and innovation.

The President & CEO will be responsible for continuing to successfully carry out TCI’s mission, strategic vision, and financial objectives.  The President & CEO will bring transparency and visionary leadership to all areas of TCI, providing oversight of the organization’s operations, culture, values, talent and financial performance.

Reporting to the Board of Directors and leading a dynamic staff, the President will spearhead the development and implementation of strategies to ensure the operational and cultural health of TCI as it evolves to enable even greater impact.

TCI’s 14+ person team consists of widely recognized experts and rising stars with unique, deep expertise and knowledge of Virginia public policy and advocacy.

The TCI President & CEO will embody TCI’s strong commitment to racial and social justice as outlined in the organization’s overview.  The successful candidate  will enhance operations and promote the organization, accelerating its impact, resource development and name recognition.  This leader will also be a highly capable manager, demonstrating investment in and maintaining a presence with each of TCI’s teams.

In collaboration with the Board and staff, the President & CEO will lead TCI into its next chapter, ensuring the organization’s external presence and internal structures are aligned with its mission and vision for justice and equity for all Virginians, no exceptions.

This is a remarkable opportunity for an exceptional leader to join a pioneering organization and lead a group of passionate and talented professionals in transforming Virginia public policy to be more equitable and just.  


KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Serve as an inspirational, innovative, and visionary leader for TCI, balancing a collaborative, relational spirit with strong fiscal acumen and discipline to ensure sustainability and continued impact for the organization. 
  • In collaboration with the Board of Directors and the staff, enhance and drive the overall strategic plan and organizational priorities to thoughtfully maximize capacity and resources to reach organizational goals. 
  • Strategically develop and maintain relationships with funding organizations, individual donors, and other revenues necessary to support TCI’s mission. 
  • Promote the organization’s social justice aspirations, encouraging awareness and inspiring others to join in the mission of uprooting systemic racism and inequality in Virginia.
  • Provide inspirational, supportive and empowering leadership for a diverse range of extraordinarily passionate, committed, and skilled staff members; foster a culture of openness, transparency, and collaboration.
  • Apply a focus on thoughtful and intentional organizational development with a commitment to growth and development for team members at all levels; demonstrate attentiveness, availability, and willingness to invest in staff development and cohesion.
  • Ensure the implementation of measures that advance the commitment to equity and inclusion. 
  • Serve as a compelling and persuasive spokesperson for TCI by effectively representing its mission, goals, and services to the Board, staff, media, and both current and prospective partners and supporters.
  • Inspire trust and confidence by developing and strengthening new and existing partnerships with key stakeholders and constituencies.
  • The TCI staff has asked for voluntary recognition of a staff union.  The current management and Board of Directors is negotiating a process to govern that voluntary recognition.  The next President will likely need to negotiate a first contract with a newly certified union. TCI has previously adopted the position of the United Nations ILO Declaration of Human Rights that it is a fundamental human right of all workers to join or form a union.
