The Executive Director serves as the chief executive of the Oregon Environmental Council and, under the guidance of OEC’s statewide Board of Directors, drives programmatic and operational initiatives in pursuit of OEC’s mission to advance innovative, collaborative, and equitable solutions to Oregon’s environmental challenges for today and future generations.
Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) seeks a skilled and motivated Climate Program Director to help enact and implement climate policies and programs in Oregon that significantly and equitably reduce climate pollution, thereby helping Oregon meet statewide greenhouse gas reduction targets and demonstrating the feasibility and effectiveness of climate leadership to other states and countries. OEC focuses primarily on state-level climate solutions, coordinating with national and regional advocates, and occasionally forwards local-level solutions.
