Program Manager

Position Summary

Exposure Labs (ELABS) seeks a Program Manager to join our Tech Reform arm of the organization to add capacity to our small team, and bring creativity and field building expertise to storytelling approaches as we help grow a movement for technology that prioritizes people over profits.

Today’s social media and search platforms are powered by algorithms that prioritize outrage, hate, and misinformation, eroding our ability to find the common ground needed to tackle society’s greatest challenges from climate change to social injustice. Since its release in September 2020, The Social Dilemma has given the public a shared understanding and new vocabulary for these threats, and our subsequent impact campaign has worked alongside policymakers and young people to sustain public pressure to reform Big Social’s business model. At the same time, the film just scratched the surface and despite tech pioneers sounding the alarm as early as the 1980s, the humane tech movement is still young.

Our organizing partners tell us that they need more stories to expand on different facets of the issue and connect the dots from exploitative algorithms to real-world harms. Organizers are also looking for tools for how to use storytelling in their work and resources to continue educating students, policymakers and the general public. Our partners have done essential work uniting the disparate groups working on this issue into powerful coalitions that are getting results, but there is more work to be done. We help serve as connectors and conveners uniting advocates, the public, and policymakers around problem framing and cohesive calls to action, because we’re more powerful together.

In 2022 we are excited to build beyond The Social Dilemma, producing new short-form content and investing in other creators working in a variety of formats (e.g. short films, podcasts, art, spoken and written word, digital campaigns, etc.), to create a shared cohesive narrative around the issue and expand the breadth of intersectional tech stories in this space. We believe storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to create cultural change and shift systems and by reaching a variety of audiences across a range of platforms, we can build bridges and capacity to continue propelling the movement forward.

In collaboration with the Program Director, the Program Manager will develop, launch, and manage a new capacity building grant program, enabling creators closest to the problem access to the critical initial funding, resources, and connections they need to tell their stories. The Program Manager will also be responsible for managing and evaluating pre-existing grant opportunities, in addition to collaborating with team members on other aspects of our work such as building out a program advisory board and contributing to program communications as needed.

An ideal candidate has knowledge of grassroots organizing and movement building, and experience in programmatic grants management with fundamental adherence to the principles, ethics, and best practices of capacity building programs. We are seeking a candidate who is passionate about mentorship and cultivating a diverse community of tech storytellers toward collective solutions. While there will be opportunities for production-related collaboration, an ideal candidate’s long-term, primary interest should not be in filmmaking but in leveraging art and storytelling for activism and being in community with other creators and movement leaders. Existing knowledge and/or expertise of the tech reform space is preferred, but not required – provided there is a strong interest and desire to learn about the issue and the needs of
communities who are most impacted by extractive tech.

If you’re a candidate who is a strategic thinker and planner, an activist and changemaker, highly self-motivated, meticulous about details, can manage multiple priorities and relationships, has excellent writing and communication skills, can lead the work through an equity lens, has a great sense of humor, and can be an effective and empathetic member of the entire ELABS team, then you’d be a great fit for our organization.
