Overview

Emerson Collective is an organization designed to develop opportunities and solutions in education, environment, immigration, and health equity through philanthropy, creativity and investments. Established and led by Laurene Powell Jobs, Emerson Collective brings together entrepreneurs and academics, artists, community leaders, and more to build solutions that spur measurable, lasting change. We work collectively to make the greatest difference possible. 

As with the whole of Emerson Collective, what matters most is that we work with people who are not only the very best at what they do, but also the kindest.

The Opportunity

Emerson Collective Immigration's Regional Migration work seeks to advance humane, practical migration policies that respect the dignity of migrants and acknowledges the variety of forces - including climate change - influencing decisions to migrate. We recognize that irregular migration poses challenges to sending, transit, and receiving countries, and we seek to promote and help implement regional and sub-regional frameworks for managing migration that expand safe, legal migration pathways and help stabilize and integrate migrant populations in major Latin American host countries.

The Director of Migrant Host Community Stabilization will lead Emerson’s engagement with multilateral development banks (MDBs), the private sector, government officials engaged in development financing, development agencies, and other key stakeholders to advance new investment mechanisms for promoting resilience, adaptation, and stabilization in Latin America.

This role will report to the Director, Regional Migration & Program Lead, Latin America and is based in Latin America (with options for remote work arrangements in the region) or Washington, DC, with frequent travel required.

  • Convene key stakeholders to develop ideas and strategies to help unlock financial mechanisms that enhance financing for middle-income countries hosting significant migrant populations.
  • Work with relevant stakeholders in the US Government, including the Treasury Department and Congress through the Appropriations process.
  • Develop and implement strategies to link regional migration stabilization efforts with climate migration financing initiatives, including investments in community climate resilience and adaptation, as appropriate.
  • Help identify, assess, and strengthen stabilization projects on the ground throughout the hemisphere that can serve as pilots for investment and showcase the merits of financing stabilization and integration.
  • Help galvanize support towards stabilization efforts and establish alliances with key donors and allies that are or could be operating in this space.

Qualifications, Skills, and Requirements

  • 10+ years’ experience working on development financing, including at least 5 years working in the Americas with regional, subregional, and national development financing institutions.
