Open Positions at PLAN
About the PLAN Team:
We are a 10-year-old organization with full-time staff members across the US. We come from academic backgrounds such as Public Policy, Marketing, Sustainability, Philosophy, and more. We have passions within and beyond waste, like food security research, social justice conference organizing, design thinking strategy, sustainable fashion and non-violent direct action, just to name a few. We are southern belles, dumpster divers, queers, and crafters working toward the common goal of a just and sustainable world.
PLAN’s Commitment to and Expectation of New Hires:
We work to maintain a collaborative leadership structure by developing and continuously revising our self-governance system, establishing co-directorship, and holding semi-annual full staff retreats. We adhere to a Safer Space Policy and Community Agreements and work together to develop policies that push us to be better such as an Ethical Partnership Policy and a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Mandate.
Please note that The Post Landfill Action Network (PLAN) is an equal opportunity employer with a commitment to engaging the skills and leadership of people of color, low-income persons, LGBTQIA+ people, and people with disabilities. People from these and other historically marginalized backgrounds and communities are strongly encouraged to apply to work with us!
