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.

 

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.

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 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 Officer, who is based in Pew’s Philadelphia office, reports to the Director, Philadelphia Research Initiative. The Officer’s job is to help conceptualize, design and implement research and analysis on key issues affecting the city of Philadelphia.
 

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.

Environment
For the past two decades, 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 work is focused on reducing the scope and severity of three major global environmental problems:

  • Dramatic changes to the Earth’s climate brought about by the increasing 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.

Project Overview
At least one fifth of all fish taken from the sea are caught illegally or beyond the reach of regulators. This significantly threatens the health of the global ocean ecosystem and undermines the economies of countless fishing communities around the world. Fishing grounds in developing countries and on the high seas are especially vulnerable to exploitation by companies that engage in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. International crime in fisheries flourishes because flag states do not fulfill their legal obligations to control the fishing operations of their vessels, and port states do not have the tools or incentives to identify and prosecute these crimes in port.
 
There is no silver bullet capable of addressing IUU fishing. Many tools must be marshaled to close down the avenues for illegally caught and unregulated fish. The campaign is working to lay the foundations for a global system of enforcement to combat illegal fishing through the adoption and effective implementation of policy measures that enable the identification and tracking of industrial-scale fishing vessels, the development of practical tools to improve information-sharing among enforcement authorities, and the building of the necessary human and technical resources to sanction such vessels if they have engaged in illicit activities.

 

Position Overview
To accomplish this, the Ending Illegal Fishing Project (EIFP) will focus on securing the ratification and implementation of the UN Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing, ensuring Flag State obligations are better adhered to and to properly track and identify vessels involved in fishing activities.  The EIFP will also focus on putting in place ways for countries and international and regional fisheries management organizations to share information, increase transparency and accountability and ensure flag States meet their obligations to ensure high levels of compliance with agreed fisheries conservation and management measures, all of which are prerequisites for an effective Global System of Enforcement. This position will be responsible for managing these elements of the campaign and, more specifically, the delivery of our ambition to drive change in the performance of flag states in meeting their international obligations.
 
The position is located in our London office and will report to the Senior Manager, Global Campaign to End Illegal Fishing in Washington, DC.

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 states and local 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.

Results First is working intensively in selected states and counties (jurisdictions) in targeted policy areas to embed benefit-cost analysis and related tools into policy and budget decision-making. This work is focused on both helping governments customize and implement innovative tools and linking their analyses to their policy and budget processes so that leaders can use the results to inform difficult decisions.

 

Position Overview:
The senior associate, reporting to the manager, research, will play a key role in leading the development of research products and resources (including briefs, reports, and 50-state analyses) that help advance the field of evidence-based policymaking in state and local governments and brings research to help inform Results First’s work in states and localities.

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.
