Do you want the coolest job in philanthropy?

As you probably know I am a big fan of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP). EPIP is where I developed my professional network in the field and now I am the chair of EPIP's national board. Our founding director, Rusty Stahl, will be stepping down in a few months and we are looking for someone amazing to increase the representation of young people in the field of philanthropy. If you are that person, get your resume in soon. If you are not that person, send this announcement to everyone in your network and help us find someone great.

Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) develops extraordinary new leaders to enhance organized philanthropy and its impact on communities. EPIP was founded in 2001 by a small group of young foundation professionals and individual donors who sought to work and learn with peers in order to transform philanthropy and confront generational issues, using a social justice lens.

EPIP seeks an Executive Director to lead the fulfillment of EPIP’s vision and mission in a truly creative, dynamic, and forward-thinking fashion. The Executive Director is the leader of the organization both publicly and inside the organization, and, as such, is at once a highly visible advocate for emerging professionals within the social sector and an effective project manager who ensures that the work of EPIP is done efficiently and well.
