About the role
This post provides an opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to participate in a new project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation entitled Recognition and Reparation in Philanthropy, working with the Project Leader Dr Aaron Graham.

This project will bring together a small group of representatives from the worlds of academia and philanthropy for a convening at The Bellagio Center in April 2023 for discussions to develop the tools and methods for such institutions to acknowledge and address the contested periods in their histories and how they intersect with their current programmes.
The Research Associate will work with the Project Leader to facilitate this proess by developing the framework and materials for discussion, will assist in running the convening, and will produce outputs to help disseminate its findings to the wider community.
Interview date: Thursday, 5th January 2023
