Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a leading nonprofit environmental group with more than three million members and online activists. We have offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Montana, and Beijing, and a staff of 600+ including lawyers, scientists, and policy analysts-- all working to protect the environment and public health. NRDC tackles a wide array of health and environmental issues, including food. NRDC’s Food and Agriculture Initiative focuses on protecting the food supply from unsafe pesticides, reforming industrial livestock practices, reducing overuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture, promoting more plant-based food, making school food healthy and sustainable, conserving precious soil resources, and slashing the amount of food that goes to waste. Over the last decade the Initiative has grown from a small project at NRDC into a cross-department initiative engaging dozens of NRDC staff.
We now seek a seasoned leader to take this work to the next level. The Director will be a thought leader on key sustainable food issues, manage a diverse team of six to ten staff, and help lead fundraising for this work.
