Full Job Description :-
NextFifty Initiative was formed in 2016 as a Colorado-based, private foundation funding efforts to improve the lives of older adults and their caregivers. Because we want every person to thrive in their second 50 years, we work closely with community leaders, experts in the field of aging, and front-line professionals to support programs and projects that positively impact aging and longevity. We educate, share best practices, and support innovation that will transform aging for generations to come.
We recognize that inequities in our society (and there are many) cause harm to communities and individuals, including the older people we’re here to serve. For that reason, we’re committed to building an inclusive, equitable, and diverse organization and actively working to eliminate the systems and barriers—including those in our own organization—that perpetuate inequities. We’re not there yet, so we’re working hard to create a transparent, inclusive, trust-based culture of belonging that empowers staff, board members, grantees, and other stakeholders to learn, grow, and make a greater impact for all.
At NextFifty Initiative, we value accountability, collaboration, equity, innovation, leadership, and learning. We think a fun, positive workplace culture leads to great work, so we aim to create an environment where you’ll feel supported, valued, and recognized for your unique skills, talents, experiences, and perspectives. If you’re someone who can bring diverse perspectives and identities to our team—and who also feels strongly about the values of equity and inclusion—please consider joining us.
