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, 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.

 

The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts
For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work is focused on reducing the scope and severity of three major global environmental problems:

  • The use of fossil fuels and other energy sources that damage the environment and increase the  concentration of greenhouse gases in the planet’s atmosphere;
  • The erosion of large terrestrial wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity; and,
  • The destruction of the world’s marine environment.

Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia and Chile.  Pew has also become one of, if not the, largest group of marine policy professionals in the world, working to reduce the scope and severity of various activities that are having a detrimental impact on the health of the world’s oceans.  Each year many tons of fish and other marine life are removed from the world’s oceans due to harmful fishing practices and to the lack of appropriate regulatory controls that allow overfishing and habitat destruction to continue.

 

Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Pew’s work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life and the habitat on which it depends. Our work uses a systematic, rigorous approach through the application of the latest science-based conservation standards to establish catch limits and to put in place other measures to protect or restore populations of marine life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales.

 

Our current efforts in the Western Hemisphere are focused on implementing ecosystem-based fisheries management practices in U.S. waters, protecting marine wildlife and habitat in the Arctic Ocean, achieving clean energy and climate adaption policies at the federal level, and designating new wilderness protected areas, parks and wildlife refuges on land. 

 

Campaign Overview
Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy (“Ocean Legacy”) is a project of Pew which works to protect and conserve some of the Earth’s most important and unspoiled marine ecosystems through the establishment of very large, highly protected marine reserves.
 
In 2006, the Pew Charitable Trusts and several partners launched the Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy project in an effort to establish the world’s first generation of great marine parks. After a decade of working with indigenous groups, community leaders, government officials, scientists and other organizations, the project has aided in the creation of nine major marine reserves and has helped safeguard more than 2.4 million square miles (6.3 million square kilometers) of ocean. But even with these successes, less than 3 percent of the world’s ocean has strong protections. Recognizing that new science indicates we need to protect 30 percent of our oceans, Pew and the Bertarelli Foundation created a new partnership with the goal of increasing the number of fully protected marine reserves from nine to 15 by 2022. 

 

Position Overview

The Senior Officer is responsible for developing, maintaining and advancing high-level political strategy and developing political contacts. He or she will identify and execute political opportunities and partnerships with the goal of advancing and securing the campaign’s objectives. Ocean Legacy campaigns ultimately are decided by the highest level of government officials including heads of state, and the senior officer will be responsible for securing the necessary political support for success.  The Senior Officer reports to the Director, Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy and is based in Washington, DC.

 

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.

The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts
For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with close to 250 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the  scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity and the destruction of the marine environment.

 

Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia.  Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for future generations.  Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and ecology to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity.

 

In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat.  Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.

 

Chilean Patagonia
Chile’s Patagonia is one of the last remaining intact wilderness areas of the world, yet today it is both under-recognized and under-protected. Pew and its partners are working to change that by promoting this region’s unique value in the world and developing and implementing policies to secure the long term protection of this remarkable landscape. 

 

Chilean Patagonia is on the west coast of the southern cone of South America, where the continent tapers toward the Antarctic Ocean. While many of Chile’s natural lands all have important ecological values, Patagonia is special because of its high degree of intactness, endemism and exceptional land and sea interconnectedness.

 

Approximately 80 percent of this area remains unspoiled, therefore making it similar in ecological condition to Australia’s Outback and Canada’s Boreal, other places where Pew works. Although it is approximately one-fifth the size of the continental-scale Boreal in Canada and Outback, Chile’s Patagonia stretches over several hundred miles of important wilderness that features unique geography, oceanography and ecological productivity, including a lush temperate rainforest, glacier-carved valleys, windy grasslands, inland shorelines, and countless fjords and islands.


In partnership with a robust network of non-governmental organizations in Chile, Pew will work to improve and enhance the protection of this landscape through the country’s park and reserve system, while also promoting public-private partnerships for new conservation efforts.
 
Position Overview
This position will be responsible for providing program support to the Chilean Patagonia project. 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.

Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the public interests.

 

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.

 

The Philadelphia Program

Through the Philadelphia Program, Pew seeks to enhance civic life in its hometown. We partner with many local institutions in encouraging a thriving arts and cultural community, supporting the health and welfare of the region’s most vulnerable residents, informing policy discussions on important issues facing the city, and, more broadly, strengthening Philadelphia’s appeal to visitors and residents alike.

Position Overview
The officer will support Pew’s efforts to help decision makers and influential stakeholders in the Philadelphia region address key policy challenges by providing them with relevant data and research, and bringing to bear national expertise and examples of policy reforms that have been successful in other cities. The project will concentrate its efforts on areas (1) where Pew has built expertise in our local, state, and national projects; (2) that are recognized by influential constituencies in Philadelphia as important and timely; and (3) where research has shown there are effective policies or practices in other states and localities that could inform Philadelphia’s decisions.

 

This initiative will draw on the research and expertise of Pew’s Philadelphia research initiative, which was established to provide data and impartial analysis on issues critical to the city’s future, and the robust national networks of experts that exist within Pew’s D.C.-based state and local government programs. The core element of the project will be an ongoing series of convenings intended to allow relevant local policymakers and stakeholders to engage in candid dialogue with both subject matter authorities who have conducted extensive study on targeted issues and public officials who have innovated and implemented more effective approaches. Our goal for this project over the next two years is for policymakers to draw on the research and expertise provided by Pew to enact policies, adopt agency practices or make resource allocations in at least two issue areas that will be examined by the project.

 

The ideal candidate will have a strong policy background combined with the capacity to coordinate both internal and external logistics and be capable of designing, planning, and executing convening sessions. The candidate will be knowledgeable about the local policy and political landscape, and have the proven ability to facilitate policy conversations and discussions of research with key decision makers. In addition, the successful candidate will have the ability to communicate and work effectively with diverse individuals and organizations in the nonprofit, public and private sectors. Finally, the candidate will be able to work with research and policy teams at Pew to synthesize data and existing research and participate in conceiving and drafting original materials for both internal and external consumption.

The officer will report to the project director, Philadelphia Policy. 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.

Philadelphia Research Initiative
The Philadelphia Research Initiative produces timely, well-documented and highly readable reports and issue briefs on issues facing Philadelphia for the benefit of decision makers, the news media and the public at large. The Initiative conducts in-depth research in Philadelphia, using a range of methodologies, and looks beyond the city and region for relevant information from comparable locales. Some of the reports simply lay out the facts of a given issue. Others discuss research-based pros and cons of various policy options. On occasion, the Initiative works to answer research questions posed by local officials. In all cases, the Initiative and its staff stop short of advocacy for specific policies. The goal is to be a consistent and effective contributor to civic discourse in Philadelphia.  Examples of the Initiative's work are available at www.pewtrusts.org/philaresearch.

 

The Initiative's staff conducts research using a range of methodologies, including representative-sample polling, and looks beyond the city for relevant information from comparable cities. The research typically is based on public or proprietary data, peer-reviewed research methodologies, close consultation with subject-matter experts, and regular interaction with officials of local governments and organizations. Most of its reports just lay out the facts and findings on a given issue. Some go further to discuss the data-based pros and cons of various policy options. In either case, however, the Initiative does not advocate for specific solutions or favor any particular point of view. Its mission is to be an honest broker on the issues and effective contributor to civic discourse in Philadelphia and, where applicable, other cities.

 

The Initiative's work products consist of the following:

  • Major research reports that get to the bottom of complex and important issues, often making use of data-based comparative examples from other cities.
  • Research briefs on issues that require illumination or updating but not full-length reports.
  • Shorter “web analyses” that provide updates on issues, especially those covered by previous reports or briefs, and highlight new, city-related data.
  • An annual “State of the City" report that tracks key indicators about Philadelphia’s condition—from crime to employment to demographic change—over time and in relation to comparable cities.
  • Random-sample polling to measure Philadelphians’ attitudes about the city in general, policy issues in particular, elected leaders, city services, and residents’ own situations.
  • A monthly e-newsletter that reports on work that the project has published and intends to publish, developments related to past reports, and the work of other Pew programs.
  • Public presentation of research findings to civic groups, other research organizations, and governmental bodies or officials, including the City Council.
  • Pew-organized gatherings or events to highlight the Initiative's work and engage the public and policymakers in conversation about issues and policy options.

The Initiative’s work products are produced primarily by staff members working collegially and effectively within the team and across the larger Pew organization, as needed. When specialized expertise is required, the Initiative hires external consultants but continues to manage the product.

 

Position Overview
The Philadelphia Research Initiative is a Trusts-operated project that is part of Pew’s Research and Science portfolio. Examples of the Initiative's work are available at www.pewtrusts.org/philaresearch.
 
The Senior Associate, who is based in Pew’s Philadelphia office, reports to the Manager, Philadelphia Research Initiative. The Senior Associate’s job is to help conceptualize, design and implement research and analysis on key issues affecting the city of Philadelphia.

Project Description:
In the current fiscal environment, most state and county governments are facing tough budget choices and are lacking the resources needed to support traditional levels of public services. Increasingly, policymakers are seeking those combinations of programs and policies that will yield the greatest benefits in the most cost-effective way. The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative (Results First), a project of The Pew Charitable Trusts and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, works with selected governments to implement an innovative approach to evidence-based policymaking that helps them identify and invest in policies and programs that are proven to work.

 

This work is focused on helping partner state and county governments to inventory their program expenditures, customize a benefit-cost model originally developed by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy, and link this analysis to policy and budget processes so that leaders can use the results to inform their decisions.

 

Position Overview:
The Senior Associate, Technical Assistance, Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative (Results First), will provide intensive technical assistance to partner state and county governments in a variety of policy areas, including adult criminal justice, child welfare, health, juvenile justice, mental health, and substance abuse. The Senior Associate also will contribute to the design and execution of related technical resources, support the ongoing development of the Results First benefit-cost model, and collaborate closely with internal colleagues and external partners to advance project goals. This position, based in Pew’s Washington, DC office, will report to the Manager, Tool Development, and has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.

The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts:
For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with close to 250 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity and the destruction of the marine environment.

Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia. Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for future generations. Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and economics to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity.

In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat. Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.

 

Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas:
Although the high seas make up a majority of the world’s oceans, no institutional or formal legal framework currently exists to designate fully protected marine reserves beyond a country’s exclusive economic zone except in the Southern Ocean. These waters, covering an area larger than all of the world’s continents combined, exemplify the tragedy of the global commons—exploited by all, but protected by none. The value of fully protected marine reserves has been increasingly recognized by individual countries which have established reserves in their own exclusive economic zones as a means to protect and conserve marine biodiversity and ensure the health of marine ecosystems.

 

After the joint commitment by high level representatives from countries around the world during the Rio+20 conference , the United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2015 which established a two-year Preparatory Committee to launch negotiations toward a new international agreement to conserve biodiversity on the high seas. This Committee completed its work in July 2017 and recommended that the General Assembly take a decision on launching full treaty negotiations, anticipate to begin in 2018. This project will utilize Pew’s experience as a leader in the creation of science-based marine reserves and protected areas and international ocean policy to mount a global campaign that generates worldwide support for the negotiation of this agreement.

 

Position Overview:
The Officer, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas will assist in leading the implementation of a global campaign to develop a new international legal instrument enabling the establishment of marine protected areas and reserves on the high seas. This will include work in capitols around the world and at U.N. missions in New York. The campaign will work closely with other organizations, including playing a core role in the coalition of 29-plus conservation organizations that comprise the High Seas Alliance (HSA) so as to galvanize international support for the new agreement.

This position is based in Washington, DC, and will work closely with the International Conservation Unit and Government Relations teams and report to the Senior Manager, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas.

 

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.

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, 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.
