FULL-TIME STAFF POSITIONS
Managing Director Peace and Security Collaborative
ReThink's Peace and Security team works with the nation’s leading organizations on many of the most complex and challenging issues of security in a globalized world. At present, we are engaged with U.S. policy toward Iran, efforts to secure nuclear material around the globe, trimming excessive Pentagon spending, diplomatic engagement with North Korea, and reducing the still-enormous global nuclear arsenal. In the Trump era, we are working to question the assumptions of the nuclear age that give one man the sole and unchecked authority to launch a nuclear war and driving for greater transparency and stronger legal oversight of the use of lethal drones.
In the past we have also addressed issues such as the war in Afghanistan and the International Arms Trade. Our work is grounded in the belief that the US can, and should, play a constructive role in addressing these challenges and that both America and the world are made more secure by engaged diplomacy, international cooperation to address global threats, and efforts to reduce worldwide military spending and demilitarize foreign policy.
The Managing Director, in coordination with the Co-Founder and Senior Campaign Strategist, serves as the primary point of contact, and lead manager of our work within this sector. The Managing Director will work to strengthen both the individual media capacity of participating organizations and the strategic communications capacity of the sector as a whole. This includes overseeing initiatives to develop shared media and messaging strategies, providing media and spokesperson training, building media outreach and rapid response capacity, providing groups with analysis of all of the leading reporters in this field, and supporting multi-organizational communications initiatives and campaigns.
