Job Title: Director of Communications
Application Deadline: 5 February 2022
We are an independent nonprofit organisation based in Berlin dedicated to advancing equality and justice for all by combating intersecting forms of structural inequality and discrimination in Europe. We envision a world free of systemic oppression in which each individual has access to resources, voice, power and safety. Such a world will only emerge if we address structural, institutional and historical barriers that have led to marginalization, invisibilization and lack of access and opportunity for minority groups including women, People of Color and Black people, religious minorities, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQI+ community and working class people. At CIJ, we are committed to making visible and gradually dismantling the global hierarchies which continue to place some groups above others, to allow the equitable, fair and non-oppressive treatment of all people.
In 2022 our efforts are focused on bridging the gap between social justice movements and mainstream political debates by curating a stage on which the public discourse on discrimination, oppression and intersectionality can foster systemic change and move away from sterile debates which maintain the status quo. At CIJ, we discuss how we can dismantle oppression, not whether oppression exists.
We are looking for someone who can translate the content of our work in an accessible and appealing way through social media, articles, and various other platforms. Our culture attracts proactive change makers who exhibit integrity, courage, willingness to challenge the status quo and an open heart.
If this resonates with you, we’d be happy to hear from you!
