Skoll World Forum
The system is rigged and the solution isn’t just to create more programs for people harmed by these unfair systems. The solution is to reimagine these systems to make our country fairer and more equitable for everyone—which means ensuring that the places where we work, live, play and pray tap into people’s universal drive for wellbeing, instead of undermining wellbeing for some and enabling it for others. That’s what we do.
The Full Frame Initiative (FFI) is a social change nonprofit working toward a country where everyone has a fair shot at wellbeing—the needs and experiences essential for health and hope. We partner with pioneering public systems, communities and nonprofits across the country to fundamentally transform the structures and beliefs that perpetuate inequality. We are bold, focused, creative and committed learners, willing to use our passion, humor and hope to fuel change. FFI is a virtual organization with employees located across the country.

How to Apply
FFI is interested in building a high-performing, diverse team. In order to do that we approach hiring a little differently. Rather than analyzing resumes in an attempt to determine potential for success, instead we have built a recruitment process that actively removes unconscious bias. So rather than drafting yet another cover letter, instead, we ask you to begin your application by responding to the question prompts in the application.
- If you are in need of any accommodations during the application or recruitment process please let us know in your application or by contacting our Senior Manager of Talent, Samantha Moelter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please note that your responses to the short question prompts are reviewed individually. In order to allow a more thorough analysis by our hiring team, please do not reference an earlier response when answering a later question as the questions will not be reviewed in conjunction.
- Please do not include linked resources such as websites, social media or publications, as they will not be reviewed by the hiring team.
- While resumes are requested at the time of application, they will not be reviewed by the hiring team until candidates are invited to the interview phase of the process, so you will not want to reference your resume in your responses.
