The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and invigorate civic life.
We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.
Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the public interests.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Brussels and London and staff in other regions of the United States as well as Australia, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.
Many decisions made outside the health sector—in transportation, education, housing, social and economic policy, natural resource development regulation, and others—have implications for Americans’ health that often go unrecognized in the policy making process. The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, is a national initiative designed to incorporate health considerations in decisions made in other sectors using tools for evidence-based policy making with a goal of improving health equity. The project works with community-based organizations, academic institutions, government agencies, and policymakers to build health into decisions, using approaches such as health impact assessment (HIA) and Health in All Policies (HiAP). The project partners with foundations to funds HIA and HiAP grants; provides training and technical assistance; and conducts research and policy analysis.
The project director will lead all aspects of strategy and implementation of the Health Impact Project. The position, based in Pew’s Washington, D.C., office, will report to the senior director, health programs. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.
It is anticipated that the director will travel regularly, including visits to states and stakeholders involved in policy work and to policy and academic conferences.
