Community Manager, Weave: The Social Fabric Project, Aspen Institute, Washington, DC. Deadline: Open until filled.
Weave’s Community Manager helps lead one of three strategic pillars: Connecting and Supporting Weavers through peer support, learning, links to resources and opportunities for collaboration. Weave connect Weavers through an online community platform, in-person and virtual gatherings, our website, newsletter and social media. Weavers receive support, training, ideas and a sense of belonging and purpose through our work.
Weave seeks an experienced relationship manager who understands the demands of setting a content strategy, overseeing an online platform such as Jive or Hoopla, inspiring high engagement and adjusting tactics to meet the changing needs of a community. This position will deputize and support superusers to engage others as the community grows. The Community Manager oversees the Community Associate, several Community Facilitators (part-time super-users) and interns, as needed.
Weave: The Social Fabric Project was started by columnist David Brooks and the Aspen Institute in May of 2018 to counter a culture of hyper-individualism in the US that has left Americans divided, isolated and unhappy. This crisis of connection and decline in social trust has led to rising rates of addiction and suicide, persistent inequality and discrimination, and gridlocked politics. Yet in every community, some people have chosen to weave the social fabric by investing in relationships, making commitments to others and creating connection. These “Weavers” are all different. Some work at a suicide hotline, a mentoring program or in schools. Others run a coffee shop where everybody feels at home. Still others just gather neighbors to talk or stop to listen when they see someone distraught. They lead with love, creating countercultural islands where connection and community are more important than ego and self. You will find their stories at WeAreWeavers.org.
