Economic Architecture - Entrepreneurial Leader
Ashoka envisions a world in which everyone is a changemaker: a world where all citizens are powerful and contribute to change in positive ways. Ashoka identifies and supports the world's leading social entrepreneurs, learns from the patterns in their innovations, and mobilizes a global community that embraces these new frameworks to build an "everyone a changemaker world."
One such emerging framework: Economic Architecture, is dedicated to the premise that we can and should (re)design our markets to serve the public good. And when we do, we have the potential to tap into the drive, ambition, and ingenuity of market participants to solve the problems that are impacting people’s lives.
The Entrepreneurial Leader will be a core member of the team building the Economic Architecture initiative. The role requires an entrepreneur committed to innovating for the public good. The ideal candidate will have strong conceptual, organizational and writing skills, and experience developing and implementing strategies that meet project/program-related goals and objectives.
This is an opportunity to play a pivotal role in building an initiative to address major market failures domestically and internationally.
