About the organization

The Human Rights Campaign envisions a world where every member of the LGBTQ family has the freedom to live their truth without fear, and with equality under the law. We empower our 3 million members and supporters to mobilize against attacks on the most marginalized people in our community.


The Director of Public Education & Research for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation is a full-time position. This position will play a significant role in developing public education campaigns and resources aimed at better understanding the lives and challenges of LGBTQ people and will create a research agenda to support these efforts. Moreover, the director will be responsible for overseeing the expansion, collection, analysis and translation of social and statistical research that helps to advance organizational goals, drive critical public education campaigns, and inform existing programmatic and other HRC efforts.

Working in close collaboration with other Foundation program directors and other HRC teams, the Director of Public Education & Research will also oversee a team of two. The director will also partner with our development team to secure support for this work and focus on many issues, including reducing anti-transgender stigma, economic justice for LGBTQ people, and digital literacy.

This role will also be charged with developing high-level, strategic relationships with researchers and messaging experts and spearheading areas of collaboration between the Public Policy and Marketing and Communications teams. This position will be based in Washington, D.C.
