Senior Vice President of Operations

  • The Climate Reality Project
  • Washington, DC

This position has been filled.

Our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society.

We believe real change comes from the ground up. We know that a small-but-committed critical mass of activists can not only transform society but change the world. That’s why we recruit, train, and mobilize people to become powerful activists, providing the skills, campaigns, and resources to push for aggressive climate action and high-level policies that accelerate a just transition to clean energy.

Our signature activist program, the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, has trained over 42,000 change makers worldwide since 2006. The result is a global network of activists leading the fight for climate solutions through our 10 branch offices – Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, and South Africa and a partnership in China – and 140 chapters across the US.

Alongside these efforts, our dynamic communications initiatives connect climate and behavioral science with the emotional power of compelling stories, raising awareness, and inspiring action in online audiences everywhere.
