We are looking for a communications assistant to help us in our work of bringing people together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds--in person, online, and on the page. The communications assistant will work on following: print and digital content, including Oregon Humanities magazine, enewsletter, and website; collateral production; media and public outreach; social media; events; and special projects and administrative work as needed.

Each year, Oregon Humanities offers hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state, train and support dozens of discussion leaders, and award tens of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations that, like us, believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning, and struggling together. In our magazine and on our website, we publish essays, photographs, films, and audio recordings that explore the thoughts, perspectives, and experiences of Oregonians, especially those who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.

Oregon Humanities values equity, justice, empathy, and respect as key attributes of vital, flourishing communities. We encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups, whose professional and personal experiences will help us work toward our vision of an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.



Oregon Humanities offers paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays, and makes contributions to employee medical and dental insurance, 403(B) retirement plan, and life-insurance plan.
