About the Staff Collective
350PDX’s staffing model is a non-hierarchical Staff Collective. There are seven members of the collective and all are accountable to each other and to the organization’s leadership — there is no boss. Each member of the collective fills specific roles and serves on different management teams that are responsible for different departments within the organization. We chose a collective model because we wanted to staff the organization in a way that models our value of distributing power and having shared accountability for the whole. As a collective, we are all responsible for the health and wellbeing of the organization. We all have some shared responsibilities — to help raise money, to respond to opportunities and threats, and to work on organizational development projects. Because the collective structure is unique, we are building it as we go. We are looking for someone who is not intimidated by an evolving organizational structure and who is excited to help shape it. When issues arise, we all take responsibility for addressing them.
350PDX is a non-discriminatory organization that seeks to support and empower all those working within a diverse and inclusive climate justice movement. For that reason we adhere to both the letter and the spirit of applicable laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, creed, religion, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, citizenship status, veteran status, disability, or any other characteristic prohibited by law. We actively strive to create a space of equity and trust for all who wish to contribute to our goals and welcome those who can teach us how to do this better. Any concerns about misconduct are received and dealt with seriously.
