Barr Seeks Director, Initiative on Racial Wealth Equity

In this new role, the Director will support and guide both the launch and day-to-day operations of the new Racial Wealth Equity initiative, in close collaboration with local leaders.

The Barr Foundation seeks a Director to support and guide both the launch and day-to-day operations of its new Racial Wealth Equity initiative. This is the first full-time role dedicated to the Racial Wealth Equity initiative. This initiative was developed in close collaboration with emerging and established program and policy leaders active throughout Greater Boston. Continued deep engagement of grantees and other field experts to provide feedback on current initiative activities and influence the evolution of the initiative will be a priority for the Foundation over the life of the initiative. As a new special initiative, the Director will report to the Foundation's president. This reporting structure may evolve as the initiative takes greater shape and becomes more integrated with other work at Barr.

In collaboration with leaders in the field, the Director will develop and execute new iterations of grantmaking, communications, grantee engagement, and coalition-building strategies to advance Barr’s racial wealth equity work over the next five to ten years.
