What would you do if you could change the world?

At ProInspire, we develop leaders at all levels for organizations addressing the world’s greatest challenges. Our goal is to help individuals and organizations achieve their potential for social impact. We believe that expanding talent pipelines, developing professionals, and increasing diversity will catalyze social sector performance. We have been operating in the Washington DC region since 2009 and in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2012. ProInspire partners with nonprofit, public, and social enterprise organizations addressing the most important social issues of our time – access to education, employment, family wellness, health, housing, and youth development. We work with organizations across impact areas – local, national, international – because the needs in this world are great and impact has no boundaries.

We are currently recruiting top professionals with 2-5 years of business or fundraising experience to be a part of our flagship program, the ProInspire Fellowship. This highly competitive program offers targeted positions with leading organizations, monthly trainings with a cohort of peers, an alumni coach, and a network to support career growth. Fellows spend one year working in a role focused on analysis, finance, fundraising, marketing, operations, or strategy.

About ProInspire Fellows
ProInspire Fellows bring strong skills and experience to their hiring organization, and a desire to learn through on-the-job experience and professional development.

Previous ProInspire Fellows come from across the U.S. with experience in consulting (e.g. Accenture, Bain, PwC), finance & accounting (e.g. Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG), investing (e.g. Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, The Carlyle Group), marketing & communications (e.g. Cone, dunnhumby, Zenith Media), corporations (e.g. General Mills, Google, McMaster-Carr), and non-traditional backgrounds (e.g. entrepreneurs, military, nonprofit).

After the Fellowship, Fellows can pursue multiple paths, including staying at their organization (typically more than 70% of Fellows stay), attending graduate school (alumni are now at Chicago Booth, HBS, Kellogg, NYU Wagner, Stanford GSB, and other top programs), and pursuing other opportunities (alumni have gone on to jobs with Bain, IDEO, Parthenon Group, the World Bank, and more).

Program Overview
The Fellowship program runs for 12 months, with start classes in April, August, and October 2016. Fellows work full-time for a ProInspire partner, and participate in our industry leading professional development program. ProInspire’s professional development includes orientation, Fellows retreat, monthly workshops, coaching, and leadership development projects. Fellows also receive career/graduate school support.
