LeaderSpring is looking for two exceptional people to join us as Development Manager and Operations Manager.
The Development Manager will manage LeaderSpring’s overall fundraising efforts and be a contributing member to our senior management team. The perfect candidate will be energized by interacting with funders and donors and skilled at managing the many moving pieces of our fundraising program.
The Operations Manager will manage our finance, human resources, communications, and administrative functions (with support from our fiscal sponsor) and also be a contributing member to our senior management team. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who gets satisfaction out of creating and managing systems that keep LeaderSpring running smoothly.
We are seeking candidates for both roles with at least 3-5 years of experience. Does this sound like you? Do you know someone who would be a great fit? Check out the full job descriptions (see links above) and apply! We offer competitive salary packages plus very generous benefits, including 100% paid health insurance for full-time employees and dependents.
Thank you so much to all who attended LeaderSpring's Annual Event, Unleashing Promise and Potential: Leadership from the Inside Out! On November 5th, San Francisco Bay Area's best and brightest leaders came together for LeaderSpring's annual luncheon to explore untapped possibilities for our leadership. We were thrilled to see a vibrant mix of long-time supporters and new faces. To help take stock of the provocative comments that our panelists and moderator shared, here is an excerpt from one of our amazing panelists, Kauhik Roy's remarks:
"I think a part of nonprofit leadership, which doesn't get enough attention, is the importance of authenticity and vulnerability. To paraphrase a line from Shakespeare, "If you're true to yourself, you CAN'T be false to anyone else." But that means you have to know yourself. This is a life-long journey. I think it is very important for people to see that you are on that journey, with its many mistakes and pitfalls, especially for folks as mission-driven as those in the non-profit world."
Thank you to all who attended LeaderSpring's Annual Alumni Forum! On May 14th, LeaderSpring Alumni and Fellows convened for a day of deep learning among peers, and a circle of 4 elders--highly accomplished, equity-driven leaders. Along with sharing their own stories, they engaged us in a thought-provoking, generative discussion on the kind of leadership these times call of us, individually and collectively. Special thanks to Deborah Alvarez-Rodriguez, Lynette Jung Lee, Arnold Perkins and Patricia St. Onge.
