The Pop Culture Collaborative seeks its first Learning & Insights Strategist, a thought leader who can generate and share evidence of popular culture’s power to shape narratives/ culture and advance social justice. This new position will lead the development and execution of formal, intentionally-designed learning strategies for philanthropy, the pop culture field, and the Collaborative itself.
The Learning & Insights Strategist will work closely with the Executive Director and the Strategy Director, with shared support from the Program Associate and Executive Coordinator. The Strategist will select and manage a robust set of consultants and producers to ensure successful execution of the work. The Collaborative, a small, start-up philanthropic fund, works virtually.
The Pop Culture Collaborative is a multi-million-dollar philanthropic resource and funder learning community working to transform the narrative landscape around people of color, immigrants, refugees, Muslims, and Native people in America—especially those who are women, queer, trans, and/or disabled—through strategic partnerships between social justice movements and the entertainment, advertising, and media industries. We believe there is an opportunity—and that philanthropy has a responsibility—to build a thriving field capable of shaping popular culture to express the full complexity of Americans, and make a just and pluralistic future in which everyone belongs feel desirable, achievable, and inevitable.
With the vision and backing of a bold set of philanthropic investors (our own donor “managing partners” and others), in 2016 the Collaborative began building a five-year grantmaking fund to advance this vital work – and accelerate the impact of artists, social justice advocates, culture change strategists, tech innovators, academics, and others to affect change through entertainment and narratives in mass media.
