About the Organization
The mission of Mosaic is to amplify the power of the environmental field by strengthening movement infrastructure—the connections and shared resources all social movements need to succeed. Launched in 2019 as the result of a two-year design process with diverse activists and organizations, Mosaic is led by a rotating Governance Assembly of leaders from environmental, philanthropic, and justice organizations and supported by a small staff.
Innovative in its focus and participatory grantmaking approach, Mosaic aims to make transformative investments that build the power of the environmental field by addressing “how” we win. With ideas sourced from the field, the Governance Assembly makes grants to support capacity building through leadership development, communications, shared resources, and fostering relationships within the environmental and justice communities.
About the Role
The Deputy Director will share initiative-wide responsibility and lead core operational functions to implement Mosaic’s cutting edge and innovative model. The Deputy Director will work closely with the Director and the Governance Assembly to set strategy, make grants, and lead the learning and evaluation process around Mosaic’s efforts. This role will include management of one team member with the potential for future additional direct reports.
This role requires an outcome-oriented self-starter who believes in Mosaic’s mission of engaging the full field—from the frontlines to the “Big Greens”— to create the alignment, shared tools, and scale needed to win environmental victories during this critical decade. We strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of skills, experiences, and ideas.
