Positions at the ABC
Project Manager (3 month/95 hour contract)
The Alaska Black Caucus (ABC) seeks a project manager to coordinate and oversee two complementary activities of a grant-funded security project in service of Alaska’s BIPOC communities:
Activity 1- Security Threat Analysis and Design- The ABC contracted a local expert to conduct in-depth research on the most pressing imminent threats against the BIPOC community in Alaska. The goal of this research is produce a risk and threat analysis report that provides key findings on the following:
a. Sources and presence of racially-targeted threats of violence that exist for BIPOC communities in Alaska (i.e. a comprehensive and informative landscape analysis)
b. Recommendations on how Alaska’s BIPOC communities can and should respond to those threats as they continue to grow and evolve
These findings will ultimately inform the strategic direction of the ABC, helping us continue our programming in a secure way. Grounded in the life-saving knowledge of how to navigate racially-driven risks specific to the Alaskan context, the ABC will be able to improve its sustainability as a growing, Black-centered organization in the midst of a volatile political climate.
Activity 2- Security Awareness and Response Training- The ABC plans to provide 400-500 hours of security awareness and response training to select BIPOC business and community leaders in Alaska over the course of 2-3 months. These trainings will be led by expert facilitators, identified and hired through rigorous vetting by the ABC. These trainings will function as an invaluable resource to our BIPOC community, educating Alaskan BIPOC leaders on the threats (e.g., digital, in-person/physical) that they should be aware of and prepared to face, as well as how to respond to them. Participating leaders will then be able to take this knowledge, apply it in their unique settings, and share it with the communities of color they represent and serve.
The ABC seeks a project manager to coordinate and oversee the scope of the project as described in the key activities above. Specifically, the project manager will be expected to execute the following responsibilities:
Oversee the threat analysis and design work conducted by our researcher in Activity 1
Monitor and assess weekly progress of the researcher
Coordinate the recruitment of business community leaders from the Alaska BIPOC community to participate in security awareness trainings (Activity 2), developing pre-assessment criteria and reporting, as well as post-assessment criteria and reporting
Communicate with and support training attendees as needed
Communicate progress updates on Activities 1 and 2 with ABC leadership on a regular basis
Develop key performance metrics to track and ensure the successful completion of expected project outcomes for Activities 1 and 2
3+ years experience in project management, including managing complex projects with multiple objectives under tight deadlines
Experience with data analysis as well as production and measurement of KPIs
Excellent written and verbal communications skills
Experience navigating and self-directing projects with a great deal of independence
