Full-Time Executive Director
Conservation Colorado seeks to protect what makes Colorado unique: its spectacular natural environment. The magnificent mountains, clear rivers, and wide open blue skies are rivaled by none and provide a truly exceptional quality of life. Unfortunately, the state of Colorado faces grave threats. Powerful interests are constantly pushing to put pollution and profit over public health. Conservation Colorado is at the front lines of every fight working to protect the air, land, water, and people across our state.
Conservation Colorado seeks a leader who is passionate about protecting Colorado’s unique environment. This individual will be a tireless advocate for Conservation Colorado’s mission, inspiring others to support this organization’s position on issues and policies. This person will elevate voices of diverse communities historically disenfranchised from discussions of environmental policy.
The Executive Director is the organization’s chief executive officer. This individual is part entrepreneur, part politician and part environmental sector leader. This individual will commit to building a diverse staff inclusive of many different backgrounds, identities and philosophies and creating an equitable and inclusive work environment. Candidates must demonstrate experience in organizational management and leadership.
The ideal candidate will possess knowledge of government relations, policy development and politics, and is driven by a love of the outdoors. The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate the ability to operate effectively within a nonprofit governing environment. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited four-year college or university is expected.
