The Oregon Humanities team is a group of idealistic, collaborative, creative people who are committed to bringing Oregonians together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. Each year, we offer hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state, train and support dozens of discussion leaders, and award tens of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations that, like us, believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning, and struggling together. In our magazine and on our website, we publish essays, photographs, films, and audio recordings that explore the thoughts, perspectives, and experiences of Oregonians, especially those who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.
We are looking for a Programs Assistant to join and support the evolving work of our Program Team. Current programs include Connect in Place, Humanity in Perspective, Grants, Consider This, reflective discussion facilitation training, and various other partnered programs. The Program Assistant role is an entry level position. We’re looking for someone who can be flexible and responsive to the evolution of our programming needs, who enjoys taking initiative, balancing multiple tasks, and has great organizational and communication skills for both collaboration and independent work.
