EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR - MASS HUMANITIES
Mass Humanities is seeking an Executive Director to spearhead public humanities engagement with educational, cultural, government, business, and nonprofit leaders throughout the Commonwealth. The ideal candidate will be a passionate advocate for the humanities and their relevance to contemporary life, a highly persuasive public communicator, and a proven leader and organizational manager.
Mass Humanities uses history, literature, philosophy, and other humanities disciplines to enhance civic life and enrich public discourse across Massachusetts. Established in 1974 as the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Mass Humanities is an independent programming and grant-making organization that receives support from NEH, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and private sources.
In these days of global transition, the humanities are often undervalued yet increasingly vital to resolving our common predicaments and strengthening discourse among diverse communities. At the same time, the means by which the public engages with the humanities is dramatically changing. Mass Humanities seeks an Executive Director who embraces these challenges, can build on its solid and award-winning history, and will lead the organization and represent its values confidently into the future.
Mass Humanities (formally known as the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities and Public Policy Inc.) is governed by a volunteer board of 25 directors, including six Governor-appointees, who reflect the social and geographic diversity of Massachusetts. There is a staff of 10 highly skilled individuals and an annual budget of approximately $2 million. For more information, please visit our website: www.masshumanities.org.
As the chief executive, the Executive Director is delegated the authority by the board to lead Mass Humanities in the following key areas:
Vision, mission and strategies
Management and Operations
Experience and Attributes Desired
