Join the Collective

Emerson Collective works to advance some of society’s most calcified systems. We focus on education, immigration, health, and the environment, working collectively with community, business, and government leaders to spur measurable and lasting change. We employ a range of tools and tactics—from philanthropy and venture investing to convening and art—to create pathways to genuine opportunity so people from all communities can achieve their full potential.

We’re a Bay Area-based organization with offices in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C.

We are committed to learning and embracing new perspectives, and believe we are stronger when we act together—across diverse disciplines, experiences, and viewpoints. To meet the ambitious goals of our founder, Emerson Collective is seeking colleagues with both the audacity to dream up new ways to improve the world, and the determination to make them a reality. We seek kind, curious, ambitious, and passionate people to broaden and strengthen The Collective. Join us in building a more equitable future for all.
