About Promise54

Our Inspiration

Racial injustice, inequity, and the systems designed to perpetuate them have defined our nation’s history. In the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling, the Supreme Court stated “…it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed
in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education. Such an opportunity…is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms.”

We believe the spirit of this decision was a promise to decouple race from access and, more broadly, to break the predictive links between identity and outcomes overall. We also believe that as a society, we have yet to deliver on that promise; nearly
seven decades later, institutionalized oppression, micro-aggressions, discrimination, inequity, and violence still obstruct the path to self-determination and a life trajectory full of choices for people from involuntarily marginalized communities. So, in 2017 and with the Brown ruling in mind, we founded Promise54 determined to help deliver on the promise of equity.

Specifically, we partner with social impact organizations working to address society’s most complex challenges, which often disproportionately impact historically marginalized groups. Our research indicates that too often within these organizations, the dissonance between stated values and lived staff experience results in cultures, policies, and practices, which reinforce the very inequities that organizations are working to end. This, in turn, creates additional pain and hinders impact.

We envision a day when social impact organizations can create a more just world because they have diverse teams of people thriving in roles that activate their unique gifts and talents; foster inclusive and antiracist cultures; and have equitable practices, policies, and structures. With this vision in mind, we are 20 or more passionate individuals who leverage our collective advising, coaching, systems design, and facilitation experiences and expertise to help create the conditions for people to thrive and do their best work.

About the Opportunity

The role of the AP of Marketing and Communications (“APMC”) at Promise54 is new, reflecting the growth of our team, our work, and our aspirations for the Promise54 brand. While at its core, this is a strategic brand management and development role, we are also seeking experience and expertise implementing marketing, communications, and social media strategies to grow an early-stage brand. The APMC will evaluate, enhance, and amplify a meaningful brand identity for Promise54 by collaborating with the CEO, Partner team, and Promise54 staff to set and guide the strategy for all marketing, communications, social media, and collateral to consistently reflect the organization’s values.
