The Yale Center for Environmental Justice (YCEJ) at the Yale School of the Environment (YSE) is seeking an inaugural Executive Director to lead the Center. The Executive Director will develop a strategic direction and organizational development in alignment with YCEJ’s commitment to strengthening institutional capacity to build power with frontline communities leading change. The successful candidate will have a network capable of catalyzing partnerships and shape Yale’s expanding interdisciplinary research, teaching, and practice in environmental justice. The Executive Director position also includes a strong teaching component. The Executive Director will grow and steward the Center’s budget, hire personnel, and put YCEJ’s vision for a collaborative and inclusive Center into practice.
True to its mission to educate and inspire interdisciplinary leaders through pioneering business solutions to systemic environmental problems, CBEY wants to further grow its online programming, including but not limited to growing the current course offering of the FDCE program in the areas of Energy Justice and Clean Energy Development.
The Program Manager will be an expert in either Energy Justice or Clean Energy Development, and will collaborate with a team of focused staff and faculty at CBEY as well as at the Yale Center for Environmental Justice (YCEJ), coordinate with other Yale groups to produce content, and serve as a key liaison for Yale faculty and external experts on clean energy topics.
