VP, Portfolio Strategy
At Common Future, we imagine a future where people, no matter their race or ethnicity, have power, choice, and ownership over the economy. Founded in 2001, we know that the ideas, models, and solutions that can restore community wealth already exist, they just require attention and investment. We work with hundreds of community leaders and funders through flexible initiatives that build inclusive economies. These initiatives are centered around shifting capital, uplifting local leaders, and advising the development of equitable economies. We are a black led, BIPOC majority, 40 person organization (and growing). Our culture values include centering equity, being the communities we serve, embracing experimentation, reimagining what’s broken, collectively solving problems, and modeling a new way of working. We strive to be an innovator that prioritizes the well-being of our employees. Read more about us on our Medium page.
The Community Manager is a key role in building, managing and engaging our ecosystem and network of key audiences that help our team reach our mission. Key audiences include local leaders on the ground, mentors and technical advisors, alumni of our programs, capital partners and scaling partners (pipeline organizations, peer organizations, entrepreneur support organizations). As our team launches new initiatives that build inclusive economies, the Community Manager will have the unique opportunity to play a key, cross-functional role across our teams in helping to source, include and engage the right participants and beneficiaries.
Committed to antiracism and dismantling white supremacy in work practices; practice in building power for and sharing power with community leaders; conviction that those closest to the problems know best.
