Employment

We are currently hiring for three positions: #100Days100Dinners Program Evaluator, #100Days100Dinners Part-Time Program Coordinator, and Bystander Intervention Part-Time Program Coordinator.

Program Evaluator – #100Days100Dinners – Contract Position

Hollaback!, The Faith Matters Network, and The Dinner Party are seeking a program evaluator to assess the success of their collaboration –  #100Days100Dinners – between now and March 2018. #100Days100Dinners aims to do nothing short of repairing the breach in our interpersonal relationships across political, ideological, and identity differences, leading to more civil civic discourse and engagement.

Starting January 20, 2017, #100days100dinners has been inviting people to convene potluck dinners in big cities, small towns, suburbs, and countrysides to create spaces dedicated to civic literacy and engagement, strengthening our social ties with one another. Hosts are invited to hold conversations in one of two tracks. The first, Be and Belong, is a chance for targeted folks accustomed to the daily stress of work, organizing, protesting, and living with marginalization to sit down and to share a time of rest and refueling. Recognizing that strong, dependable relationships, self-healing, and support for another are critical as we enter a time of more extreme struggle, we wish to offer those most affected by the recent rise in hate crimes — people of color, LGBTQ+ folks, Muslims, immigrants, Latinxs, and people with disabilities — a pause and a refuge. The second, Where Do We Go from Here?, is designed as a chance to sit down with folks of different political beliefs, ideologies, and identities, who wish to understand the stories beneath the stereotypes, and who are willing to grant welcome in exchange for receiving it.

Over the next year, we will facilitate over 750 dinners across the United States, and we are seeking a program evaluator to design a research program that can rigorously examine the gatherings’ impact on participants’:

  • feelings of physical and emotional well-being,
  • mindset and feelings of agency,
  • empathy toward others both within and outside their own communities and identities, and
  • rates of volunteerism & long-term community engagement.

Candidates who are interested in conducting this research as part of a research or academic institution are strongly preferred, and interest in publishing the results is a plus.

This position will be paid by a grant contract, and the funding allocation for research is capped at $5,000 for the duration of the contract. The position will be managed by Hollaback!. Hollaback! is an equal opportunity employer. People of color, women, LGBTQ+ people, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please email a PDF resume to [email protected] (as an attachment) and include the cover letter in the body of the email. The cover letter should underscore your experience conducting research similar to this, and how you might approach evaluating our metrics above.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. No phone calls please.
