The Social Manager will be responsible for: 1) visioning and executing Resonance Network’s social media content strategy, 2) co-managing the communications calendar and supporting the production of new content for social media, as well as other Resonance Network communications including emails and blog, and 3) supporting ongoing narrative analysis and landscape scanning of the field, identifying opportunities for engagement.

Core Functions

  • Collaborate directly with Communications Director to implement strategic online engagement to grow the Resonance Network community, including driving/coordinating social media strategies that can be tracked/measured 
  • Execute social media campaign and content strategy (via website, social media channels, etc.) to support building with new audiences
  • Manage Resonance Network’s online presence in coordination with Communications Director and Network Communications Manager, including design and execution of social media strategy, shaping visual brand identity, daily execution of social media posting across channels, content editing, and evaluation of relevant analytics
  • Monitor public discourse  and propose opportunities for Resonance Network to connect and engage.

Key Skills and Experience

  • Experience with and excitement for building robust engagement on social media

  • Fresh perspective/approaches to reach others who are like-spirited but not yet connected to Resonance Network
  • Understanding of social justice movement landscape, including leaders and organizations

  • A strong instinct for reaching/engaging folks living at the intersections of multiple systems of oppression (racism, misogyny, transphobia, ableism, etc.), as well as how these structural issues affect our work together
  • Both a strong orientation toward collaboration and capacity to drive work independently

  • Ability to set clear and measurable goals while holding space for emergence, experimentation, and group processes 
  • Enthusiasm about creative processes, cultural/narrative strategy, and liberation-informed data gathering
  • Strong interpersonal skills, including ability to communicate openly with coworkers and community members

We are healers, leaders, artists, survivors, and storytellers creating visionary spaces to access creativity and radical imagination, build deep relationship, and practice what it means to thrive.
