Who We Are:
The Alliance for Decision Education (“the Alliance”) is a non-profit education organization leading the growing call to have decision-making skills taught in schools across the country by 2030. Increasingly, teachers, parents, and business leaders all are advocating for students to learn the skills to make sound choices; improving their lives and those of others around them. We are dedicated to the belief that better decisions lead to better lives and a better society. Our mission is to improve lives by empowering students with essential decision skills. For more information, please visit www.AllianceForDecisionEducation.org.
The Alliance for Decision Education is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer that celebrates diversity, promotes equity, and encourages inclusivity. We are committed to building and fostering a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more diverse we are, the better our work will be, and the more impact we will have.
We are seeking someone who understands decision sciences and is excited about the impact that the Alliance’s mission can have on the next generation of decision-makers.
The Decision Sciences Partnership Manager will help achieve these goals by engaging with decision sciences (Decision Analysis, Behavioral Economics, Cognitive Psychology, Probability, etc.) professionals and other key stakeholders through various councils. First, this individual will develop and oversee the Workforce Council (recently launched), which engages industry leaders and employers who currently utilize decision sciences in their profession to champion the importance of Decision Education for future employees. Second, this individual will forge partnerships with organizations primarily focused on promoting the utilization of decision sciences (e.g. Society for Judgment and Decision Making (SJDM), Society of Decision Professionals (SDP), The Good Judgment Project) and that are interested in bringing the many learnings of decision sciences into K-12 education. These councils are vital to the Alliance’s efforts to generate awareness and drive demand for Decision Education.
The Decision Sciences Partnership Manager will report to the Director of Community and Partnerships (“CAP”), as part of the growing CAP Department, which is responsible for growing and energizing a network of individual and organizational supporters.
The position can be partially remote initially, but we would strongly prefer that the Decision Sciences Partnership Manager mainly work from the Alliance office in Bala Cynwyd, PA once the organization deems it safe to return to the office. That said, we will consider long-term remote work for exceptional candidates. Occasional travel will be expected once it is deemed safe.
Salary and Benefits:
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Alliance employees receive a comprehensive benefits package (including health and dental insurance completely covered for you and your family, a 401k with up to 5% match, and long-term disability insurance), generous paid time off and sick-time policies, a laptop, and other tools and resources to help employees do their best work.
