You will manage our research databases and engage in necessary research (such as finding corporate policies and company contacts) that enables global corporate relations and campaigns. You will also be working closely with Open Wing Alliance members to share data and progress, and coordinate member organizations and/or third parties to translate global commitments into key languages. This role reports to the Head of Global Corporate Engagement.

  • Work with the Open Wing Alliance to collect key language translations of global cage-free and broiler chicken commitments so that groups worldwide can leverage commitments in their region.

  • Attend meetings with corporations as needed to take notes that support the team in crafting their corporate relations strategy.
