This values-driven leader has a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and the ability to serve as an exemplar for an organization's values and foster an inclusive, high-trust, and respectful workplace.
The Executive Director will be thoroughly committed to the vision of building and supporting responsible business practices, especially for early-stage start-ups, to shape the future direction of the technology sector. The preferred candidate will already have visibility, an established network, knowledge of technology policies and standards, and a track record of coalition-building among other successful business leaders.
The expected base salary range for this position is $200,000 - 240,000, depending on experience; in addition to salary, RIL will offer full health, dental and vision benefits.
