Media Democracy Fund seeks a bold, creative leader to join the team as the Director of Programs. This is an opportunity for an innovative leader to develop and shape strategy on some of the most pressing issues of our time: digital equity, tech accountability and addressing disinformation targeting communities of color.
Media Democracy Fund (MDF), a project within New Venture Fund (NVF), is a catalyst for an open, secure, and equitable internet. MDF brings together diverse voices to design inclusive and responsible solutions and empower public interest advocates to create an environment where digital technologies and the internet have a long-term, positive impact on society.
Reporting to MDF’s Executive Director, the new Director of Programs will lead key MDF programs, sharpen existing strategies, develop new initiatives, and deepen institutional knowledge to maximize the impact of MDF’s work. The Director of Programs is also expected to be a leader within the fields and sectors in which MDF operates, enhancing MDF grantmaking efforts through partnerships with network and movement organizations as a facilitator, collaborator, convener, innovator, and bridge-builder. The Director of Programs is responsible for a substantive portion of MDF’s overall programming and mission-driven activities, as well as oversight and management of assigned staff. This is a full-time position that will include significant travel when public health conditions permit.
