Project & Partnership Steward


Reporting to the Director of Innovation and Design Strategy, the Project & Partnership Steward will support weaving programs and service offerings across the Movement Infrastructure and Innovation Team by bringing a high level of operational excellence through creative, strategic, and effective project management.  This role joins a team with Project Advisors, the Director of Fiscal Sponsorship, the Director of Innovation and Design Strategy, and the Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer to help make the work of movement building more easeful, more impactful, more transformative, and more joyful by providing fiscal sponsorship infrastructure, strategic thought partnership and leadership, capacity building, and network weaving. The Project & Partnership Steward will collaborate with the MIIC Team, across MSC departments, and with external partners to ensure our project based strategies are designed with elegance and implemented with care. The steward will play a primary role in supporting contracts and collaborations with external partners, and managing our onboarding and offboarding process with fiscal sponsorship partners. 


Founded in 2001, Movement Strategy Center over the last two decades has been a social and environmental justice incubator, serving as a movement hub for both housing visionaries and emergent networks, and providing core intermediary functions to advance ecosystem-wide  impact: resourcing a robust and maturing ecosystem of leaders, networks, and projects, and offering core infrastructure support through fiscal sponsorship and philanthropic services. In recent years, MSC’s in-house incubation efforts have focused on cross-sector movement  building to cultivate the power necessary to accelerate a just transition from a world of  domination, extraction, and violence, where the few live at the expense of the many – to a world  of interdependence, liberation, and resilience, where the many govern for the benefit of all. MSC centers on Black, Indigenous, and people of color intergenerational systems leaders and networks that are committed to transformation and boldly leaning into the future and whose  communities are most impacted by extraction, domination, and violence. 

MSC understands that transformative movements change the way we think, our structures and  systems, the way we live, and even who we are. We recognize that we are whole people, and  whole communities, and because the issues and problems we face are interconnected, our  systemic solutions and movements must be interconnected as well. The way we achieve our  goals and with whom are just as important as our outcomes.
