The Better Life Lab at New America is a small team of researchers and storytellers working in solidarity with the movement for work-life justice. We focus on intersectional gender equity, elevating the value of care, and rewiring social policy and workplace culture to work for today’s families. The Lab is looking for an early-career professional to support the work of its team in Washington, DC as an Operations Associate.
The team works collaboratively to maximize its impact on workplace culture, social policy, and gender equality, employing a variety of innovative tactics and iterating on them based on analysis of their efficacy. Collegiality, self-motivation, creativity, and energy are key to thriving in this flexible work environment.
The Operations Associate will play an important administrative and supportive role, tracking budgets, monitoring grant deadlines, researching grant opportunities, assisting with grant writing, and providing research support as needed. The Associate must be highly organized and detail oriented, and should take pride in providing a team what it needs to help it be more effective and efficient in its work to change American culture around work and caregiving. The Associate will also have database management responsibilities.
