The Red Door Project is seeking to hire a part-time Digital Office Admin to assist in the smooth operations of our growing organization and provide direct administrative support for our team. As a small performance-based nonprofit organization, COVID changed everything for us. We are excited to take this opportunity to translate our live performance program, The Evolve Experience, into a digital workshop. In this new environment we have found a need for increased internal IT expertise, leading to the creation of this new position.
The mission of The Red Door Project is to change racial ecology through the arts. We envision a society where people from diverse racial backgrounds and experiences live, work, play, and create together, and all people have the confidence, capacity, and opportunity to fulfill their highest human potential.
We are seeking someone who is up for the challenge of helping to keep us organized and focused as we continue to expand and grow in the digital landscape. We encourage you to learn more about us at https://reddoorproject.org/
Our ideal candidate will be deft with digital communications, easily managing a high volume of emails, routing calls through Zoom phone, taking concise meeting notes, and assisting in the creation of social media content.

As the Digital Office Admin, you will be trained to run the tech for our online events, and also help with promotion, support and follow-up. You will be an integral part of establishing the online Evolve Experience workshop!

About the Red Door Project – Our Values
Take a non-binary systems approach
In life, there are no good guys and no bad guys. There are only systems within which individuals’ function, and understanding this complexity without judgment is the best approach to progress.
Be contextually authentic
We honor where people are and seek congruence among their thoughts, words, and actions. Candor helps us maximize our limited time together. Different contexts call for different behaviors (you wouldn’t behave the same around your spouse, your grandmother, and the president) but we ask you to bring the beautiful specifics of your experience to every day at the Red Door.
We don’t have all the answers. Neither do you. Be curious about conflict, about systems, about improvements, about yourself, your co-workers, and the organization.
Nothing has ever grown without taking a risk. You must step into the unknown in order to expand your awareness and to learn about boundaries and possibilities. There’s no failure, only feedback, which empowers us to adopt corrective measures and redouble our efforts to strive for an outcome.
Take ownership of your work. To paraphrase August Wilson, success is heavy. You got to put your shoulder to success. Sometimes that means taking a project into your own hands and making sure that it is completed. Sometimes that means asking for help when you need it. Be aware of what you need to be successful and pursue that.
The person with the most flexibility will have more choices and therefore have the most influence.
