Project Manager, Finance Focused Strategies

The project

The Financed Focused Strategy Project intends to understand and translate civil society's privacy concerns to an investor audience. Its goal is to increase investor interest in, and support of, technology companies becoming more accountable and attentive to their privacy and human rights practices.

The key question the project is addressing is: How can civil society organizations make common cause with investors and in doing so utilize the influence they have with corporate boards and management? The project’s strategy is built on developing quantitative metrics for investors to assess and engage with companies and prompt improvements in privacy practice, identifying where attention to privacy and human rights may support long-term company value creation and benefit portfolio returns – for example, through increased revenue, reduced costs, improved forecasting, and/or the reduction of systematic or idiosyncratic portfolio risk.

This requires synthesizing information and sentiment from knowledgeable and impacted stakeholders to build a clear message that investors can implement into their securities selection and convey to their companies. The project has begun with identifying salient adverse impacts on the human rights to privacy in consultation with civil society experts.  The research team is now collecting micro and macro data and running analysis to identify where the strongest overlap with investor interests likely sits, within the concerns of the human rights community.

This project builds from research and strategy setting available here.

The Role

The Project Coordinator is needed to bring this project to the next stage. We need someone to lead the coordination and collaboration networks of investors and civil society experts, working alongside the Investor Alliance for Human Rights, an initiative of Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility (ICCR). The intention is to ensure value creation while integrating the rights of all stakeholders including technology users, consumers, workers and communities.

Note: The position is fully remote. It is a full-time position, but how you set your hours will be largely up to you.

The ideal candidate

The Project Manager is a strategic big-thinker who is also able to implement their ideas. They will develop and implement strategies to increase institutional investors’ attention to tech's impact on human rights. A strong candidate is one who can understand and connect the human rights community, researchers and data analysts, and the broader investor community.

This role requires:

  • A strong understanding and direct experience with the financial markets and, ideally, the institutional investor marketplace,
  • The ability to connect with, coordinate, and communicate to, a wide range of stakeholder types (human rights experts, tech experts, investors, academics, media, etc), and
  • A deep interest in how technology impacts society and human rights.

Compensation:

Depending on the person's skills, knowledge and past experience, the budget for this role ranges from $65k to $135k. We are also willing to consider a part-time or shared position, if the right skills fit is there.
