Vacancy: Co-Chief Facilitator (Community Focus)
Catalyst 2030 – A Global Movement of Social Change Innovators
Catalyst 2030 comprises social innovators and enterprises, NGOs, intermediaries and funders and other social change innovators, collaborating in this urgent moment to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We live in a unique era of human progress. Extreme poverty, malnutrition, violence, and infectious disease have dropped, while life expectancy, literacy rates, and electricity access have soared. Yet, severe inequalities in income, health, education, and representation continue to disadvantage billions of people around the world. Meanwhile, humanity’s growing ecological footprint is threatening many of the natural systems we all depend on—such as climate, oceans, land, biodiversity, and fresh water—which are nearing irreversible tipping points. These crises often intersect, creating conditions ripe for instability and conflict.
We may be the last generation that can act to reverse these trends. Catalyst 2030 believes that collective action and bold, new strategies are needed to address the crises of our time. Joining forces with communities, governments, businesses, and others, Catalyst 2030 members are working toward changing systems at all levels. Cumulatively – and often with limited resources – members have already impacted the lives of millions. Together we envision the realisation of equity and a better life for all.
One Family Foundation and Catalyst 2030 actively promote equality, diversity and inclusion. We consider the experience of all candidates, irrespective of age, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation, disability, gender, gender identity or gender reassignment.
This position is remote and can be carried out from most regions that have at least a six hour overlap with CET working hours.
Catalyst 2030 is seeking a Co-Chief Facilitator
Catalyst 2030 has transformed from its beginnings as a start-up, nimble entrepreneurial enterprise to a fast growing movement. Splitting the critical functions of Catalyst 2030 into two main categories, both working in coordination, is a natural response to the functioning of the organisation, and a natural indicator that two types of leaders are needed to ensure the roles are successfully and effectively carried out. We hope this transition can create effective co-leadership and structures to support this transformation in how organisation works – and how the world works.
The Co-Chief Community Facilitator is an experienced senior social innovator/entrepreneur who deeply understands the values and ethos of the movement and is closely associated with the movement. This best fit for the role is likely to be a social entrepreneur/innovator transitioning out of her/his own organisation within the membership network, a leader in her/his area of expertise.
