Program Manager of Impact & Analytics, Healthcare Anchor Network

The Program Manager for Anchor Strategies Analytics will lead and facilitate a number of projects that are specifically focused on the development of the evidence base of anchor strategies as well as on the data collection efforts of the different anchor institutions that are members of TDC’s networks.

This involves shepherding the development of the necessary infrastructure for data collection and analysis across different program areas (for both internal and external data), collaborating with the network members and partner organizations to solidify the evidence base of anchor strategies, and managing or supporting initiative groups of anchor institution representatives tasked with advancing the data collection at their respective institutions.   

This position may involve supervising a part-time Senior Associate. TDC employees are represented by the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union (NPEU). This position will be part of the bargaining unit until it becomes supervisory. At that point, the employee will no longer be eligible for bargaining unit membership under the terms of the TDC-NPEU collective bargaining agreement.

This is a remote, full-time position intended to start in early June 2021. 

May involve supporting supervisors in fundraising activities.
