U.S. Racial Justice Director

The Organization

The David & Lucile Packard Foundation is a family foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children, families, and communities—and restoring and protecting our planet.

We work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world. Over our nearly 60-year history, we have worked with thousands of organizations and leaders in the U.S. and worldwide to advance progress in the critical areas of science, ocean and land conservation, climate change, women’s reproductive health and rights, and the well-being of children, families, and communities.

At a time of multiple, intertwined crises globally and here in the U.S., the Packard Foundation began in 2021 a long-planned review of our grantmaking strategies. The first step of our process was to rearticulate our vision and mission, reexamine our organizational values, and create a strategic framework that builds on and honors the Packard Foundation’s past while advancing justice and equity in all that we do.

The Opportunity

In June 2020, the Foundation established a five-year $100 million fund to address anti-Black racism and took the immediate step to provide a $20 million grant to the Solidaire Network’s Black Liberation Pooled Fund to support organizers and leaders in Black-led movement efforts. Since then, an additional $20 million have been invested in creative approaches to advance justice and equity, principally across the issues the Foundation supports.

Building on the momentum of this early work, the director will lead the U.S. Racial Justice initiative’s grantmaking — specifically, developing a strategy for and overseeing an initial $60 million in grantmaking to address anti-Black racism while also collaborating with colleagues to:

  • Identify and explore grantmaking opportunities that advance racial justice within the Just Societies goal area
  • Advise and participate in opportunities to advance racial justice across the Foundation’s other grantmaking; and
  • Lead the Justice and Equity collaborative to support Foundation-wide learning (to be developed).

Chief Strategy and Growth Officer

The Organization

The National Council’s vision is to make mental wellbeing, including recovery from substance use challenges, a reality for everyone. Despite overwhelming need, nearly 30 million people across the U.S. do not have access to comprehensive, high-quality, affordable mental health and substance use care when they need it. 

Founded in 1969, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing is a membership organization that drives policy and social change on behalf of nearly 3,200 mental health and substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery organizations and the more than 10 million children, adults and families they serve. We advocate for policies to ensure equitable access to high-quality services and supports. We build the capacity of mental health and substance use treatment organizations. And we promote greater understanding of mental wellbeing as a core component of comprehensive health and health care. Through our Mental Health First Aid program we have trained more than 2.8 million people in the U.S. to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use challenges. 

The National Council is growing rapidly to meet this moment; both our budget ($77M) and number of passionate staff (270+) have grown more than 50% since 2020. 

The Opportunity

The Chief Strategy and Growth Officer (CSGO), in this newly configured role, will play a critical role in the National Council’s achievement of its mission, vision and goals.

In collaboration with the strategic leadership team — Chief Executive Officer, Chief of Staff, Chief Program Officer, Chief of Operations and Transformation, Chief Diversity Officer and Chief People Officer — the CSGO will seek out opportunities that allow the National Council to shape and influence the future of Mental Health and Substance Use (MH/SU) and integrated care – and the field providing that care — in the United States. They will partner with leading practitioners in MH/SU, policymakers, researchers, advocates, public and private donors and others to increase awareness and funding for innovative and effective programs.

Vice President, Chief People Officer

The Organization

With a world-class 24/7 emergency and specialty hospital that treats more than 100,000 pets annually, animal care and adoption centers that place 4,000+ pets into adoptive homes every year, and effective lobbying & anti-cruelty investigation powers, the MSPCA-Angell is one of the most prominent veterinary and animal protection organizations in the world.  

These pioneering programs drive the MSPCA-Angell’s mission to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society—a mission it has faithfully carried out since its founding in 1868.

2023 marked the latest evolution of the organization’s mission: Its merger with the Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) catapulted the MSPCA to a leadership position in pet transport. Thousands of homeless pets—primarily from the South—have been relocated to New England in just the last three years, where they received top-flight veterinary care before being placed into adoptive homes. 

Currently, the organization comprises more than 750 professional staff members and a $112M operating budget.

The Opportunity

The Vice President, Chief People Officer (CPO), in this newly configured role, will be a true partner to the CEO and across the organization. The CPO will design and oversee an aligned and adaptive talent strategy, including recruitment, staff and leadership development, retention and engagement. They will embrace and promote a culture that emphasizes diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

This is an outstanding opportunity for a strategic and relationship-oriented leader with deep experience in talent management, employee engagement and culture development during times of organizational transformation.  With a proven track record supporting inclusive growth and change, while engaging both strategically and in a hands-on way, the CPO will support MSPCA-Angell’s innovative work across its multiple sites and programs.
