Knowledge Team Africa PositionLocation:
Arlington, VABrief Description:
) is the world’s largest association of social entrepreneurs — men and women who are creating new institutions and system-changing solutions for the world’s most urgent social problems. Since 1980, Ashoka has pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship, electing and connecting more than 2,000 individuals with system-changing ideas in over 70 countries.
Fellows themselves are at the core of Ashoka and, thus, the Venture Program that coordinates the rigorous Fellow selection process is central to the work we do. So too is the work of building the global community of Ashoka Fellows (what we call “Fellowship”) and supporting them. The Knowledge Team is a group of four regionally-focused intrepreneurs who work with both the Venture and Fellowship teams as liaisons to our staff in the field. We are looking for a Knowledge Team member to link with our Africa programs and join colleagues currently focused on the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Application Information:
