The Director, Strategic Initiatives acts as the point person and project manager for all strategic priorities at ACCT Philly, functioning as the right hand of the Executive Director in ensuring progress and high standards. As an organization with considerable ambition but which is challenged by availability of resources, the process of turning goals into strategy and into sustained and impactful action can be difficult to see through to completion. Competing demands and the requirements of day to day operations can often take priority resulting in the stagnation of progress. By partnering with organizational leaders and acting as project manager, the director ensures that these endeavors do not peter out and that ACCT continues to develop into a first-rate organization.
In addition to overseeing strategic projects, the director provides oversight to ACCT Philly’s quality assurance processes, ensuring that record keeping, data, and reporting are accurate and effectively inform and report on organizational activities. The director also oversees special projects, strategic initiatives, and other endeavors that do not have a clear owner within the organizational structure.
