Executive Director of National Programs - Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM)
Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM)
About the organization
Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a roughly ten year old, rapidly growing organization, works to create realistic pathways for students from low-income and historically marginalized communities to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers. While many efforts in STEM focus on achieving minimum competency or granting basic exposure, we instead focus on advanced math from an early age. Our work has been featured in the New York Times and the Atlantic. For more insight into our work and programming, view our annual report or browse our website.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
BEAM’s inaugural Executive Director of National Programs will have the exciting and impactful opportunity to lead the implementation and scaling of an ambitious new STEM initiative for students from marginalized communities across the US that both cultivates a love of math, and builds a community around a love of math. The incoming ED will design, shape, pilot, and scale a program that we believe will chart new pathways to rewarding, well-paying STEM careers for students from all kinds of backgrounds and communities.
THE ROLE OF THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Executive Director of National Programs reports to the CEO and is responsible for the strategy, vision, and execution of BEAM National. Working with a team that includes existing BEAM staff with expertise in this work, and with the flexibility and budget to hire additional staff as needed, the ED will lead the design and piloting of different program components, building to a larger launch and scale of the program.
This role is ideal for someone with strong operational skills, and who can implement a process for growing a project with design for long-term success. Our ideal candidate has experience in an early-stage organization and can operate at a high level while developing the needed processes, tools, and infrastructure.
