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 best interests of the people. We partner with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations and concerned citizens who share our interest in fact-based solutions and goal-driven investments to improve society.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Australia, Brussels and London, and with additional staff in other regions of the United States and around the globe, 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.
Strategy is a program department within Pew whose goal is to inform critical institutional and program decision making, strengthen the design and implementation of Pew’s work, and generate knowledge that advances Pew’s program objectives. We pursue this goal by (1) enhancing the organization’s efforts to generate ideas for new initiatives and larger bodies of work; (2) applying a wide range of planning approaches that help turn ideas into effective action; (3) using evaluation to improve program performance and inform decision making, (4) ensuring that staff have access to information that meets their needs to design, implement, and manage high performing strategies, initiatives, and campaigns, and (5) collaborating with colleagues in preparing a wide range of planning and other types of documents for consideration by Pew’s board of directors.
The program planning and agenda unit is part of the strategy portfolio within Pew’s program division. The program agenda team provides content support, scheduling, and communications oversight for program board documents (totaling approximately 230 documents prepared for the board in fiscal 2018) in collaboration with staff across the program portfolios, the executive office, and operations and cross-cutting departments.
The coordinator reports to the director and supports the process of preparing and producing agenda documents for the Trusts’ board meetings. Key responsibilities include: template set-up, population of content, and formatting and tracking of document status and related communications to participants in the process. The position requires excellent organizational and verbal communications skills and attention to detail. It is based in Pew’s Washington, DC, office.
Minimal domestic travel anticipated for conferences and meetings.
We offer a competitive salary and benefit program, including: comprehensive, affordable health care through medical, dental, and vision coverage; financial security with life and disability insurance; opportunities to save using health savings and flexible spending accounts; retirement benefits to help prepare for the future; and work/life benefits to maintain a good balance.
