This 18-month position will help lead a new initiative, called “Bridging the Divides,” that is being launched by the GGSC, in partnership with NationSwell.
In response to growing social, political, and economic divisions in the United States and around the world, Bridging the Divides will raise awareness about the research-based strategies for fostering constructive cross-group dialogue, relationships, and understanding. The initiative will produce a range of multimedia resources that mix science and storytelling, highlighting the main findings from a large body of relevant research and the lessons learned from organizations that have been bringing people together across group lines.
The Bridging the Divides Writing Fellow will drive the development of this content, in collaboration with the editors of Greater Good. Guided by extensive reporting and research, he or she will write a series of articles exploring whether, how, and under what circumstances people from different groups can better understand and get along with one another. The Fellow will also consult on the development of (and help edit) related content for the initiative—podcast episodes, blog posts, videos produced by NationSwell—and contribute ideas to a large public event and online training that will synthesize many of the key insights developed over the course of the initiative—all intended to help scale up promising efforts to bridge divides.
This is a full-time (100% time), 18-month contract position.
This position pays an annual salary of $75,000 and provides the full UC Berkeley health benefits package.
