Job Description

Equis is a set of organizations (including Equis Research, Equis Institute, and EquisLabs) working to create a better understanding of Latinos, innovate new approaches to reach and engage them, and invest in the leadership and infrastructure for long-term change and increased engagement.
Since 2019, we have served as a hub for Latino research and innovation, leaning into the complexities of Latino voters in the United States, ensuring they get the sophistication of treatment and level of attention that matches their critical role in the electorate. Equis is also committed to developing Latino leaders across the progressive space, serving as a convener of organizations and individuals leading Hispanic-focused programs. The scope of our work is designed to engage Latinos in multiple arenas because we believe that this moment requires a complete rethinking of how we engage Latinos.
Moonshots encompass a range of 5-10 year projects targeting key areas: Democracy, Culture, Media, and Talent. With an intentionally broad scope, our aim is to redefine Latino engagement across multiple sectors. We collaborate with partners and allies, prioritize research and learning, and develop programs to tackle the underlying challenges hindering Latino influence and participation.
The Democracy Moonshot is designed to radically transform the civic experience of Latinos in this country and raise their participation in elections and civic life to levels commensurate with their potential as the second largest voting bloc in the country.
Reporting to the Initiative Director, Equis is seeking an Associate Program Manager who will help manage the launch, implementation, and ongoing evaluation of the 2024 electoral programs that seek to mobilize Latino voters at scale in key communities across the US.
Providing both day-to-day oversight and management of various pilot projects, the ideal candidate will be someone who has strong experience in program management, ability to use data to inform decision making, and innovative approach to problem-solving.
- Program Implementation: Day-to-day implementation and roll-out of experimental pilot projects in Latino communities.
- Program Execution: Creates and executes creative design pieces such as mail, radio, digital, and sms in a timely manner.
- Program Planning: Work closely with Democracy leadership to help plan future programming post 2024 cycle.
- Partner and Vendor Management: Maintains relationships with vendors, consultants, and partners in state and meets with in-state program partners and vendors regularly.
- Partner Engagement: Work closely with relevant partners within the Latino Democracy ecosphere. Build and manage partnerships with both national partners and local partners in communities who will implement programming.
- Community presence: Travel to selected communities to interface and support local partners and leaders on a monthly basis and attend events held on behalf of pilot projects.
- Project Management: Ensure timely execution of programming and logistics, monitor progress, and communicate any roadblocks along the way.
- Project Reporting: Create and manage reporting, including status reports to Democracy leadership, collaborators and stakeholders, and project status updates as needed. Includes written reports or presentation decks during active and post programming.
- Cross-functional Collaboration: Serve as a liaison between various departments, external partners, and stakeholders.
- Quality Control: Implement quality control measures to ensure integrity of the work
