General Overview:

The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), a dynamic nonprofit organization that serves as a catalyst for privacy scholarship and advancing principled data practices in support of emerging technologies, is seeking an Event Manager. The Event Manager, reporting to the Director of Events, will be part of a three-person team responsible for planning and executing FPF’s in-person and virtual events. 

The ideal candidate will be committed to providing outstanding service to colleagues, partners, and supporters by organizing unique and memorable events that are of the highest quality. This role requires partnership with multiple internal and external stakeholders and the ability to juggle planning for several events at the same time. Responsibilities will include supporting planning for larger conferences and gatherings, as well as independently managing all aspects of planning and execution for smaller events. Types of events include: an annual multi-day conference, half-day and full-day educational seminars, small in-person and virtual networking events, academic panel sessions, workshops, and social receptions and dinners. Most take place in the Washington, DC area, but this position may provide limited support to events organized by FPF’s offices in Brussels, Singapore, and Israel (travel to these locations is not required). 

This is a full-time position based in the Washington, DC office. FPF maintains a hybrid work environment where staff are currently only required to work in-office one day per week.
