Trainer - Education Sector
The Management Center
About the organization
Our mission is to help social change leaders learn how to build and run organizations effectively, equitably, and sustainably so that they can deliver exceptional results towards their missions. Founded in 2006, we’re now a 50+ person, $10 million organization. We've helped shape the practices of hundreds of influential organizations and thousands of individual managers, with a particular focus on social justice and educational equity organizations. Our clients work on critical issues, like advocating for educational equity, promoting immigration reform, fighting for racial, economic and gender justice, and protecting voting rights. We aim to help them by making their organizations as effective as possible, by providing coaching, training, and resources for the broader field.
We work hard to deliver services that help our clients actually implement our advice, which has enabled us to grow by word of mouth. Our trainings are engaging, practical, and often fun!
All trainers (full-time, part-time, or adjunct) will help impact both individuals and organizations by:
•Delivering our existing training program to diverse groups of managers across the country, primarily via two-day trainings (both in person and virtually) that we offer both publicly and for client organizations
•Helping meet the increasing demand for trainings of groups led by and for people who identify as Black, Indigenous, or other people of color
Trainers who are on staff (full-time and part-time) will also:
•Engage with potential clients who approach us to design training packages that meet their needs, and occasionally reaching out to possible new training partners
•Give input on the revision of our curricula and design of other products as we grow.
•Collaborate with others on the training team and in TMC as a whole, as we work to deepen our antiracist practices, strengthen our services, assess our impact, and learn and grow together.
Our training curricula focus on the elements of effective, equitable, and sustainable management, including delegating effectively, setting goals and measuring progress against them, hiring a talented and diverse team, giving feedback and developing staff members, addressing performance issues, and creating a culture of belonging.
The primary gauge of your success will be the extent to which the trainees are ready to implement better, more equitable management practices, and feel the training experience was useful.
You are, or have served as, a senior leader with significant management experience in either education organizations/school systems (think Assistant Superintendent, Manager of Principals, Executive Director, member of the C-suite, etc.), or in progressive nonprofits (think Executive Director, CEO, Vice President, C-suite, etc.).
To be successful in this job, you will have a deep knowledge of how to manage and lead equitably in social justice or educational equity organizations, and a wealth of your own stories and experiences to draw on to illustrate the concepts. You will also excel in these areas:
• Teaching, both virtually and in person, in a way that leads participants to implement what you teach. You’ll be able to strategically deploy lecture and experiential learning techniques, and your facilitation is engaging and drives learning for everyone in the room.
• Having a deep knowledge of equitable management practices and opinions about the best path forward in a variety of situations. You’ll be able to apply your knowledge to be helpful and solve participants’ thorniest management challenges, often untangling the problem quickly and offering advice on-the-spot in front of a room full of people.
