Senior Manager, Distribution and Product Marketing (Social Impact)

Full Job Description

About the Markle Foundation:

The Markle Foundationchallenges itself and diverse partners to deploy their varied expertise to identify solutions to critical public problems and achieve systemic change. Today, as millions are unemployed and advanced technology and automation change the very nature of work, Markle’s current priority is advancing solutions that will enable workers in America to move into good jobs in the digital economy.

About the Rework America Alliance:

In response to the devastating impact of the pandemic, Markle launched the Rework America Alliancea nationwide collaboration of employers, non-profits, educators, government entities, and public and private organizations. The Alliance is working with a wide array of partners to open opportunities for millions of unemployed and low wage workers to move into good jobs, particularly people of color who have been disproportionately impacted by the current economic crisis. Partners include National Urban League, NAACP, Unidos US, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Google, IBM, Microsoft, McKinsey & Company, North America’s Building Trades Unions, Workday and other leading businesses, labor unions, training, and workforce organizations. (The full list of members can be found on our website.)

The Rework America Alliance builds on Markle’s previous work in this field. In 2013, Markle launched itsRework Americainitiative to help workers have greater market power and a stronger voice in decisions that impact their lives. The Rework America Task Force was focused on how to create more good jobs and how to prepare people for them, publishing the Norton press book America’s Moment in 2015.

This work inspired the development of Markle’s Skillfulinitiative in 2016 in Colorado - which expanded to Indiana in 2018. Skillful has now transitioned into Markle’s Rework America Alliance. Skillful is contributing resources to the Alliance as it aims to help unemployed people across the country return to the workforce in better jobs with greater career potential.
