About Every Texan
The greatest resource in the state of Texas is its people. Yet, too many Texans can’t access the conditions they need to thrive — good health care, education, and jobs. Many of the people who make Texas so incredible can’t fully contribute to its prosperity. They experience unfairly limited access to the conditions that enable Texans to thrive.
Based in Austin, Texas, Every Texan is an organization pursuing social justice through public policy. Every Texan envisions a Texas where people of all backgrounds can fulfill their potential and contribute to the Texas community.
Every Texan is known for its combination of credible and deep subject matter expertise with accessible information and data to support both policymakers and other advocates, with a focus on healthcare, food security, education, jobs and financial security, and budget and taxes.
As Every Texan enters this next chapter, it seeks an exceptional Executive Director (“ED”) to lead the organization to achieve even greater levels of strategic influence, impact, and innovation – knowing that these external indicators derive from a healthy organization with talented staff, strong partnerships, and a solid reputation in the field.
The ED will be responsible for carrying out Every Texan’s consistent achievement of its mission, strategic vision, and financial objectives. The ED will bring transparency and visionary leadership to all areas of Every Texan, providing oversight of the organization’s operations, culture, values, talent and financial performance.
This is a remarkable opportunity for an exceptional leader to join a pioneering organization and lead a group of passionate and talented stakeholders in transforming access to equity and opportunity across Texas, at a time when racial tensions and social inequality have led to challenges and pervasive fears that mirror decades past.
The ED of Every Texan will be at the forefront of the fight to ensure that equity becomes a core part of Texas’ ethos.
