Accion is a global nonprofit committed to creating a financially inclusive world, with a pioneering legacy in microfinance and fintech impact investing. We catalyze financial service providers to deliver high-quality, affordable solutions at scale for the three billion people who are left out of — or poorly served by — the financial sector. For nearly 60 years, Accion has helped tens of millions of people through our work with more than 160 partners in 55 countries. More at http://www.accion.org.
Here at the Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI), we work to advance inclusive financial services for the billions of people who currently lack the financial tools needed to improve their lives and prosper. We leverage partnerships to conduct rigorous research and test promising solutions, and then advocate for evidence-based change. CFI was founded by Accion in 2008 to serve as an independent think tank on inclusive finance.
Why you should consider working with us:
The Senior Director, Learning and Strategic Communications will be CFI’s lead on the anticipated USAID Green Recovery Investment Platform (GRIP) project focusing on enhancing learning and capacity to address climate change through green investments. This position is contingent upon award. The GRIP project, to be awarded in the Spring of 2022, will be USAID’s signature program in support of the U.S. Government commitments to a green COVID-19 economic recovery. GRIP will help USAID to attract, reduce real and perceived risks from, and mobilize private and public finance and private sector actions to meet immediate, urgent adaptation and mitigation needs while building the enabling environment to support net-zero commitments and encourage alternatives to investments that exacerbate existing structural inequities.
The GRIP project has three objectives; this position leads Objective 3.
GRIP project leadership and management
Knowledge management and content curation
Harnessing learning from GRIP M&E systems and across the industry
Influence strategy and campaign development
USAID staff and industry learning
