Director of Network Resources


About Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy

Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) is a growing community of foundation professionals and other changemakers working to advance equity within and through philanthropy. Our mission is to empower emerging leaders and elevate philanthropic practice in order to build a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. EPIP has established itself as a leading network for diverse early- and mid-career philanthropic professionals, particularly those who identify as people of color, women, and/or LGBTQ. Our 16 member-led chapters span the country and provide peer-to-peer programs, networking opportunities, and support while serving as platforms for member leadership. National programs like our webinar series and our biannual conference connect members to additional supports, knowledge, and opportunities.

EPIP’s new strategic plan, adopted in 2017, outlines three core strategies to achieve our mission over the next four years:

EPIP is a fiscally sponsored project of Tides.


About The Role - Director of Network Resources

EPIP is facing a great challenge: We have an abundance of opportunities to advance our mission and build our organization -- more opportunities than our current team can seize.  EPIP’s current plans call for revenue growth of $770,000 in 2017 to $1.4 million in 2021 -- and that may not even be ambitious enough. As the Director of Network Resources, you will create long-term value for the organization by supporting and mobilizing EPIP’s vast network of leaders, exploring new revenue models, and enhancing existing monetization efforts in order to unleash new revenue for the organization that furthers our strategic direction.

We are starting from a position of strength as EPIP currently has one of the most diverse funding models among comparable organizations, benefiting from operating support grants, individual and institutional memberships (approximately 1,200 individual members and 55 member institutions), and conference sponsorships. Our current plans call for growth across the board, but with a strong emphasis on foundation grants and conference sponsorships.

Working closely with our Executive Director, Tamir Novotny, and in partnership with staff, board members, and EPIP members at large, you will identify opportunities, train and support our community in pursuing those opportunities (where appropriate, pursuing those opportunities personally), and build the organizational systems that allow for this work to blossom in alignment with our values. Where appropriate, you will also work with staff and others to explore new revenue generation activities and improve or innovate on our current revenue model.

Hiring Process

For this hire, EPIP is using ReWork’s process, which is designed to focus on relevant work skills and experience first while filtering out information that can allow for implicit bias. It de-identifies candidates, schools and past employers from in the early stages, removing these factors from view while zooming in on the work itself. This ensures that the candidate’s work is the primary informant of our decision making and makes opportunities like this one more accessible.

In practice, this means:

Our hiring process includes these steps:

We are committed to transparency throughout this process. We understand interviewing can be stressful and aim to minimize that stress and uncertainty. To give you a sense of timing, steps two through four above typically take four to six weeks.
