Kresge is committed to scaling innovative, collaborative, cross-sector and multidisciplinary approaches to address today’s greatest social challenges facing urban underserved communities.  In recent years, Kresge has worked to embed strategic learning within each program and practice area in an effort to share learnings across the foundation as well as externally throughout the social sector.

 

At a critical point in the foundation’s build out of its learning and evaluation function, Kresge now seeks a Strategic Learning and Evaluation Officer (SLEO) to serve as a thought partner to internal program and practice teams and lead activities that support a culture of learning and continuous growth, connect data and insights with decision-making, and improve overall effectiveness. Reporting to and working closely with the Director of Strategic Learning and Evaluation, the SLEO will also cultivate ongoing multi-disciplinary strategic learning efforts and training that foster and embed evaluative thinking across the foundation and will bolster Kresge’s efforts to disseminate the foundation’s learnings across the field. Additionally, s/he will steward relationships with external consultants and will collaborate with Program Operations and Information Management staff to support accountability, learning, and decision-making, drawing on the full suite of data and analytics tools available.

 

The ideal candidate will bring five to seven years of experience in community development, community change, urban planning, or a related field with a strong understanding of both qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods and practices. S/he will bring deep experience designing theories of change and logic models along with proven facilitation skills. Additionally, the SLEO will be a dynamic influencer with highly effective interpersonal and relational skills and the ability to provide nuanced support to team members on issues that may be challenges or points of opportunity. A compelling storyteller, the SLEO will demonstrate a natural inclination for learning motivated by the internal drive to shed light on complex issues. Finally, the SLEO will demonstrate commitment to Kresge’s vision and values and be dedicated to advancing equity with the belief that learning and evaluation is in service to the communities the foundation seeks to support.
