Executive Vice President of Programs & Strategy at the National Immigration Law Center http://hillzoo.com/washington-dc-employment/executive-vice-president-of-programs-strategy-at-the-national-immigration-law-center/2022/11/11/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 23:55:50 +0000 http://hillzoo.com/?p=8504 Founded in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is a leading non-profit organization (501(c)3) in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants and their loved ones. NILC’s mission is grounded in the belief that everyone living in the U.S. regardless of race, gender/gender identity, immigration status, or economic status — should have equal access to justice, resources, and educational and economic opportunities that enable them to achieve their full human potential. Together, NILC and the affiliated NILC Immigrant Justice Fund (IJF), a 501(c)4 organization, work to advocate more directly for federal immigration reform policies. NILC is committed to advancing its mission — which intersects race, immigration status, and class — through racial, economic, and gender justice and equity orientation.

NILC is at an exciting moment in its organizational trajectory, supporting our five-year strategic framework and scaling the organization and its work through influencing systems, policy advocacy at the federal and state levels, engaging in movement and power building, and narrative and culture strategies in addition to continuous improvements to our operational model. NILC is evolving its executive leadership structure to sustain healthy growth, systems, and culture and to live into greater shared leadership, role clarity, and accountability. Over the next 12-24 months, NILC is inviting an interim ED/President to steward the shift toward a permanent, evolved leadership team and infrastructure that will sustain and support the next chapter of growth for the organization and its impact. To that end, NILC invites nominations and applications for the position of Executive Vice President of Programs & Strategy (EVP), who will provide important, executive leadership both to NILC, the IJF, and the immigrant justice movement during a dynamic time by guiding internal and external alignment and integration of NILC’s strategic framework to program activities and goals.

The ideal candidate for EVP will be a seasoned manager and skilled communicator who thrives in a complex, multistakeholder environment and has demonstrated success developing, implementing, and externally representing a multipronged strategy for successful outcomes.

They will ideally bring political savvy and experience in advancing effective policy at both the state and federal levels as well as additional lived and professional experience relevant to NILC’s work. They will be an entrepreneurial, results-driven, relationship builder who is committed to NILC’s mission and values of racial justice & equity, valuing diversity, fostering partnerships & collaboration, encouraging respect & personal well-being, and striving for transparency, integrity, and honesty.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES AHEAD FOR THE EVP AT NILC

In collaboration with the organization’s President, program leaders, and subject matter experts, the EVP drives the planning and execution of NILC’s advocacy, policy, and legal strategies. Leveraging these and additional partnerships, this position will engender an organization-wide commitment to strategic clarity by building the organization’s programmatic capacity to the scale required to carry out the strategic impact as outlined in the strategic framework.

An experienced, inspirational, and decisive leader who knows how to leverage relationship and organizational influence to drive progress, the EVP will advance a robust strategy for immigrant justice that is people- and community-centered and grounded in intersectional rights, needs, and opportunities of immigrants and their loved ones. This role is external-facing and strategy oriented, driving the big picture strategy and prioritization of NILC’s program work alongside external relationship building using knowledge, skills, and expertise of the overall immigrant rights movement and political landscape. The successful candidate will refine and clarify organizational process and strategy—for themselves and for each programmatic function, ensuring that all stakeholders understand the details of an evolving strategic framework, the process through with their input is received and considered, and how their work connects to the organization’s vision and impact.

Together with a national network of government agencies and partners, BDT efficiently connects people today to programs that pay for food, healthcare, and more while helping to modernize benefits access for tomorrow. Centered on equity, BDT envisions a world that connects people to essential benefits and services while treating them with dignity and respect.

Since its founding in 2005, the organization has screened more than 1.2 million households for benefits and submitted more than 1.1 million benefit applications on behalf of families across the country, securing more than $9 billion in food, housing, healthcare and other assistance for families and individuals nationwide. BDT’s current theory of change leverages direct assistance to individuals to drive innovation in benefits access, provide credibility, engage and equip other sectors, and help government streamline access. The provision of direct assistance is part of what makes BDT unique among organizations seeking to create systems change.

BDT now seeks a Director of Policy to advance state and national policies to provide dignified and efficient benefits access with the goal of improving health, increasing economic mobility, and creating a more equitable society. The Director of Policy (Director) informs the organization’s overall strategy to scale impact and develops and oversees BDT’s federal and state policy roadmap, cultivates opportunities to provide technical assistance to the government, and secures funding. The Director also leads the Policy team that provides technical assistance, writes and promotes policy briefs and playbooks, and informs BDT’s products and services. Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer, the Director influences the field through thought leadership, engaging in the national dialogue about poverty, equity, and public benefits modernization, and shares what BDT has learned and can offer. The Director builds and strengthens relationships with policy leaders and key people in the field to promote the adoption of evidence-based policy and practice changes and identifies opportunities to test new scalable, human-centered, and equitable solutions.

BDT seeks candidates who are seasoned policy professionals with national systems level experience.

ABOUT BENEFITS DATA TRUST

BDT began in 2005 in Philadelphia focused solely on providing efficient and effective phone-based benefit application assistance at scale. It quickly hired a policy staff to support this direct assistance to families and individuals. Over time, BDT has developed into a national nonprofit that provides data-driven outreach and assistance to people in need and seeks to streamline benefit access nationwide through systems change.

At BDT, the team of outreach specialists, data scientists and policy analysts work every day to improve the health and financial security for families. Some spend time on the phone taking older adults, veterans, and single mothers through a benefits screening process. Some are software and data engineers who look for efficient ways to comb through data to determine how best to connect people to benefits they’re missing out on. Yet others work closely with public servants to improve government service delivery. Since its founding, the BDT team has facilitated nearly 800,000 benefit enrollments, securing more than $9 billion in food, housing, healthcare and other assistance for families and individuals nationwide. Since 2019, BDT has streamlined access to benefits for 3 million people through policy and practice changes. In 2021, BDT worked with 12 states to streamline access to benefits for eligible households and helped to secure an average of $2,465 in benefits per enrolled household.

BDT now works with states nationwide. The organization is working in at least 13 states currently and has ongoing operations in the 7 states with benefit centers. Having established itself as a social change agent and thought leader in the benefits access sector with a proven impact model, BDT is committed to solving the benefits access problem for good.
