Managing Director

Job Description


 Founded in 1999 to advance the nonprofit sector’s communications capacity, FrameWorks Institute is a nonprofit think tank that designs, conducts, interprets and explains communications research to advance the resolution of social problems. Staffed by leading social science researchers and experts in translating research into learning, Frameworks conducts research and translates it into actionable guidance for nonprofit leaders engaged in positive social change. The work of the organization involves advanced research, development of curriculum and instruction for adult learners and technical assistance to improve the practice of nonprofit communicators. It is built around the Institute’s unique communications approach: Strategic Frame Analysis™ (SFA). The SFA approach stresses a critical combination of research methods (qualitative and quantitative) to support both descriptive and prescriptive investigations of the power of communications frames. Since its founding, FrameWorks has contributed substantially to a transformation in communications practice, from measuring the effectiveness of communications strategy by merely counting news clips to a higher standard of empirically testing and documenting changes in policy preference. As such, it is among the most influential communications organizations operating in the nonprofit sector today. The Institute is located in downtown Washington, DC.
