The Oregon Humanities team is a small group of idealistic, collaborative, creative people who are committed to bringing Oregonians together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. Each year, we offer hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state and tens of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations that, like us, believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning, and struggling together. In our magazine and on our website, we publish essays, photographs, films, and audio recordings that explore the thoughts, perspectives, and experiences of Oregonians, especially those who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.

We encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups, whose professional and personal experiences will help us work toward our vision of an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.
