Are you passionate about farming, rural communities, and social justice? Would you like the opportunity to help create a fair, just, and resilient food and farm system by leading one of the premier people’s organizations in the Upper Midwest? The Land Stewardship Project is seeking an executive director to lead us as we launch our 40th year of “keeping the land and people together.”
We are seeking an experienced leader who is deeply committed to building power in rural areas and has a proven interest in environmental stewardship of the land. The candidate for this position should also be dedicated to economic, racial, and gender justice and equity. They should have a proven track record of successfully leading justice and equity initiatives and have the savvy to build unity where issues of race, political polarization, and income inequality divide and isolate rural people. As our current farm crisis is destroying rural communities and small- and mid-sized farms all over our country, we seek someone who can align our program areas and expertise in a way that expands what we’re doing well, but also addresses the serious challenges our members and communities face.
The application deadline is Monday, Nov. 8, 2021.
