The Fellow will be expected to lead the office’s public-private partnership programs - Civic Bridge, and Startup in Residence - and design and implement strategic events, communications, and initiatives that serve our mission.
Partnership and project management: Fellows will be responsible for managing the program development, implementation, and continuous improvement of our team’s cohort-based partnership programs. Fellows will collaborate with OCI’s partnerships lead and will be responsible for owning work streams or management of individual partnerships that OCI facilitates. Fellows will manage relationships with external and internal stakeholders, including at the executive level. Fellows will also manage project sourcing, internal review, and project management of our team’s engagements, including Civic Bridge and Startup in Residence.
New initiative development: Fellows will collaborate with OCI partners to identify further needs within the City and, as needed, develop new interventions to address the needs. For instance, Fellows may support the Emerging Technology Working Group, which is developing recommendations for the City Administrator on how the City can best engage with and regulate new technology in the city and which will present its recommendations in the late fall.
Design research & implementation: Fellows will work with the OCI team to use a human-centered approach when addressing civic challenges, with a specific focus on challenges related to cleanliness, safety and livability concerns. Skills desired include developing insights, brainstorming and designing solutions, and ultimately testing assumptions iteratively.
