Career change? The San Francisco Foundation is recruiting for its 2017 - 2019 Multicultural Fellowship Program

Previous Fellows of the Multicultural Fellowship Program

O, NOW you're considering a career change. 

You live in the San Francisco Bay Area and want to pursue your "passion," not your paycheck. After marching in the Women's March you're inspired to do something that will "make a difference" in this world. You want out of your cubicle and you're seeking a project that will "change the world" into something more humane, more compassionate more tolerant. 

Does that describe you? First things first. 

Here's an opportunity to get your feet wet in the world of nonprofits that form the safety net of our society. The San Francisco Foundation is recruiting for its 2017 - 2019 Multicultural Fellowship Program, which hopes to cultivate the next generation of community leaders to reflect the diversity of the Bay Area and the importance of equity-driven leadership.

The Fellowship is a two-year, full-time program that aims to increase diversity in the philanthropic, nonprofit, and public sectors. As The San Francisco Foundation implements its ambitious strategy to advance racial and economic equity across the Bay Area, the Multicultural Fellowship Program is also evolving to align with that bold mission while maintaining its rich history of supporting emerging leaders. 

As integral staff of our Program Department, incoming Fellows will participate in the Foundation’s steps towards implementing our regional equity strategy.

Successful candidates are early-career professionals of diverse cultural backgrounds who show promise and passion to create significant equitable change. The Fellowship provides challenging work and professional development experiences, on-the-job training, and opportunities to enhance skills in grantmaking, convening, strategy development, research, and project management, all within the civic, political, and economic contexts of the Bay Area to support our equity agenda. 

Additionally, Fellows benefit from networking, mentoring, trainings, seminars, professional conferences, and interactions with a wide array of nonprofit, community, government, and philanthropic leaders.
The deadline to apply is Monday, April 3 at 5:30 p.m. PST.
