Proactive problem solving: Proactively develop solutions to challenges, including by constantly looking at big-picture progress on the youth programming team, and by flagging any potential upcoming challenges in the organization overall.

Application of equity and inclusion lens: Bring deep insight and a practical lens to places where identity, equity, and power intersect with the work. Can recognize ways that your and others’ identities show up and play out in the work, especially as a senior level team member.

Optimistic approach and flexibility: We approach our work with a can-do attitude and a spirit of “yes.” Together, we push work forward through obstacles and adapt quickly as things change (which they inevitably will!).

Always learning: There’s always more to know out there, and you’re hungry for it. You absorb information from your colleagues, from your work, and from keeping up with your field. If something doesn’t make sense, you ask questions until it does, and you apply what you learn in your work.
