Job description:

At the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation we believe that by creating an environment for our employees to thrive personally and professionally, we will have maximum impact toward our missions to achieve our vision.

Leadership and Culture

Our culture shapes our choices about what we do and how we do it. We believe that energized people, working well together, fueled by great leadership in an inclusive environment can do extraordinary things. We expect foundation employees to intentionally and consistently embody our values of optimism, collaboration, rigor, innovation, and inclusion.


The mission of the Global Policy & Advocacy (GPA) division is to understand and shape the public policy debates affecting the foundation's work, build support for its major program and policy objectives, and develop partnerships and alliances that can advance the foundation's objectives nationally and globally. Because the foundation's resources alone are not enough to solve the challenges ahead, GPA also supports advocacy efforts to engage diverse stakeholders and promote innovative solutions that advance our program goals. We work in close partnership with grantees, our colleagues in the Global Health, Global Development, Global Growth & Opportunity, U.S. and Gender Equality programs and Foundation Communications to build the environment in which all people have the opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives.

Philanthropy thrives in the presence of bold thinking, effective tools, robust networks, and inspiring narratives that nurture a culture of giving. The Philanthropic Partnerships team (PPT) serves as a resource to those who want to achieve more with their giving and invests in organizations that help donors overcome common obstacles. We believe that when people have the right innovations, information, and inspiration, their giving can advance equity and accelerate the pace of positive change in the world. Our team seeks to enhance and enable generosity at all levels of wealth and in multiple regions around the globe. We support programs that provide donors with resources to make informed decisions about giving, encourage innovations and policies that enable philanthropy, and support cultural norms around generosity.

This role will also provide project support for efforts related to charitable giving by high-net-worth individuals (e.g., learning events, foundation visits, research, briefings, and data management).
