Purpose of the Position:

Launched in 2019, the Southern Economic Advancement Project (SEAP) partners with policy thinkers and doers to amplify their efforts and bridge gaps in policy infrastructure. SEAP’s goal is to advance policies that improve economic security, healthcare access, and environmental justice for all Southerners—acting as a connector, convener, and policy entrepreneur across issues and states, translating good ideas to the Southern context. SEAP researches policies to achieve stronger outcomes at the state and local level in the South, amplifies the activities of local organizations through technical assistance and grants, and provides a bridge between the best learnings nationally and a regional strategy for implementation and engagement. Embedded in the work of SEAP is a rigorous consideration of race, class and gender, which intersect all social and economic policy in the south.

Essential Roles & Responsibilities: 

  • Manage the development and deployment of a community engagement tool that will enable individual community members, as well as community leaders, to share quantitative and qualitative feedback. Create interactive dashboards and maps through Tableau that will be accessible to individual community members and organizers.
  • Maintain and enhance the SEAP Data Tracker and SouthStrong Covid Data Tracker as part of our effort to support partner organizations in making the case for their communities and their work.
  • Create a data literacy training program for partner organizations and data advocacy guidebook;
  • Build and maintain relationships with allied organizations at the state and local level and assist in sub-granting opportunities to these organizations for data training;
