Descripción

Princeton in Asia (PiA) is a non-profit organization affiliated with and located at Princeton University. Since 1898, PiA has fostered mutual appreciation and cross-cultural understanding by connecting service-minded graduates and partner organizations in Asia through immersive work experiences that transform perspectives, cultivate long-lasting relationships and benefit local and global communities. In the 2023-24 fellowship year, PiA facilitated 45 one- and two-year-long fellowships and 2 summer internships in 10 countries and regions of Asia, contributing to the important global focus areas of arts and culture; economic development; education; environmental sustainability; peace, justice, and access to information; public health; sports; and STEM. PiA is the oldest and largest program of its kind, drawing applicants from over 180 colleges and universities and boasting a vibrant community of 3400+ alumni across the world. PiA prides itself on offering talented young people transformative experiences involving cultural immersion and community-building.

We are hiring for the role of Fellow Affairs Manager. Reporting to the Director of Programs, the Fellow Affairs Manager will work closely and collaboratively with the entire Program team. 

Location: PiA is administered by a team of full-time staff based in Princeton, New Jersey. We love the people the PiA mission attracts, so we like to spend some days together in the office, though we also value flexibility and respect personal workstyles. This is a hybrid position with several days a week based in our Princeton, NJ office and others remote in your home office. The Fellow Affairs Manager will travel to Asia 1-2 times per year. After the first year, PiA may consider alternative locations for the Fellow Affairs Manager. 

Responsibilities: Reporting to the Director of Programs, the Fellow Affairs Manager is responsible for enhancing inclusion and belonging for program participants, and responding to program participants’ issues and concerns.

Here are the ways you’ll contribute to PiA’s impact:  

  1. Understand best practices and legal requirements in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, conflict resolution and mediation, and international exchange.
  2. Collaborate with senior leadership to develop and implement DEI policies and procedures to ensure alignment with best practices and legal requirements, integrate DEI principles into organizational decision-making, program development, and strategic planning, and advocate for systemic change and policy reforms to address structural barriers to equity and inclusion within the organization and its broader community.
  3. Offer guidance and support to staff and participants on DEI-related issues, including training programs, resources, and workshops.
  4. Manage monitoring and evaluation for all program components, which may include collecting, processing, and analyzing data, and making recommendations for program improvement based on this data. 
  5. Serve as a liaison with external partners in Asia to promote PiA’s policies, DEI goals, and initiatives to foster cross-cultural understanding.
  6. Address instances of discrimination, harassment, or bias and implement protocols for conflict resolution and mediation.
  7. Contribute to efforts to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and participant base, including outreach efforts to underrepresented communities.
  8. Co-design, manage, and implement ongoing programming on identity and belonging for program participants.
  9. Support participant recruitment and selection through application evaluation and interviews.
  10. Manage a small group of PiA Fellows and Interns, including pre-departure preparation and ongoing support during program participation.
  11. Assist the Program Team in setting the tone and vision for the program.
  12. International and some domestic travel are expected parts of the role, as is the ability to work on evenings and weekends, both those designated in advance and in the event of an urgent situation.
