The Senior Director will be responsible for synchronizing the team’s state- based efforts with a federal strategy to advance organization-wide programmatic priorities. With an authentic appreciation for the value of ‘states leading the way,’ an effective leader in this role will bring a proven understanding of the importance of advancing solutions that can be attractive to a variety of policymakers and will be able to apply learnings from one state’s progress to other states and on the federal level.
