Executive Director, Responsible Endowments Collective (NY)

DEADLINE: December 20, 2013

The Responsible Endowments Coalition (REC) seeks a full time Executive Director. This position is a unique opportunity to lead an established and growing organization committed to creating social change through investment decisions.

REC works for social change and corporate accountability through university endowments. Colleges and universities control over $400 billion in capital and lay claim to strong social missions, yet few have embraced responsible investments. By introducing students, alumni, faculty and staff to the tools of active ownership and providing a national network for collective action, REC fills a unique niche in the corporate responsibility movement. Working with their institutions to invest responsibly and proactively, students and other university members have the power to support corporate reform in areas such as human rights, environmental justice, and equal opportunity, and to encourage accountability to the communities in which they live and learn by supporting community development and participation.
