Announces Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fellowship

The Eugene & Agnes E. Meyer Foundation has announced that will select its first Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fellow in 2019.

The fellowship is a two-year, full-time paid position in the foundation’s office in Washington, D.C. The fellow will work closely with the senior director for strategy and equity and the senior director for program and community to help advance the foundation’s work in racial equity through research, trainings, and capacity building.

Among other things, the fellow will contribute to the development of a regional racial equity indicator tool; assist in the planning and facilitation of external meetings, training sessions, convenings, and special events as well as internal team building, culture building, and education activities to support the development of an anti-racist culture; support the planning and implementation of cohort-based capacity-building programs and convenings to advance racial equity and systems-approaches in the nonprofit field; conduct, analyze, and synthesize research on best practices and approaches in advancing racial equity; and provide project management, administrative assistance, and general support, as needed.

The fellowship begins in fall 2019 and concludes in fall 2021 and will culminate in a second-year capstone project of mutual interest to the foundation and the fellow.

Applicants must have a minimum of five years of work experience in any field, have a demonstrated personal commitment to racial equity, be curious about philanthropy and how foundations operate, and like working in a fast-paced environment as part of a team. There is no requirement to be currently enrolled in a degree awarding program. The fellow also must be available to work from the foundation’s office in Washington, D.C., for the duration of the fellowship.

The fellow will be paid an annual salary of $60,000 and will be eligible for health care, prescription, vision, and dental insurance, a 403(b) retirement plan, and a generous leave policy.

Individuals interested in applying are encouraged to complete the online Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fellowship application by September 3, 2019. The form will ask applicants to respond to three prompts: 1) describe your experience advocating for people of color and racial equity/justice; 2) tell us why you’re interested in learning about and/or contributing to the field of philanthropy; and 3) tell us about the key skills, abilities, experiences, and perspectives you would bring to the fellowship.
