We are looking for an office administrator to support our staff and board in our work of bringing people together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds--in person, online, and on the page. The person in this position is responsible for general office duties, in addition to offering financial, personnel, and technical support. As needed, the office administrator supports staff requests for general assistance. This position requires a broad-based and thorough understanding of the activities, vision, and work of Oregon Humanities.
Each year, Oregon Humanities offers hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state, trains and supports dozens of discussion leaders, and awards 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.
Oregon Humanities values equity, justice, empathy, and respect as key attributes of vital, flourishing communities. We encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups.
