The State Director leads the execution of the organization’s coalition building, policy promotion, training and legislative organizing strategies. This position plays a central role in the effectiveness and impact of SiX’s Legislative Affairs team and partners with SiX’s in-state and national partners to promote progressive policies and support progressive legislators in their state. This position also plays a critical role in liaising with other departments across SiX to promote collaborations across projects.
At SiX, we commit to equal pay for equal work. To counter pay inequality and uphold internal parity, we use a nonnegotiable starting salary system, while benchmarking our pay to highly competitive markets in the nonprofit sector. The starting salary for this position is $85,000. In addition, SiX offers competitive benefits including generous healthcare coverage options for you and your family, life insurance, a retirement match, flexible schedule, and a generous leave and holiday schedule. More information about our benefits and compensation philosophy is available here. This is a full-time, exempt position. SiX is a fully remote organization; however, this position requires frequent travel throughout the greater Atlanta metro area and occasional travel out of state. Due to COVID-19, SIX has asked staff not to travel in their official capacity. However, when we are able to resume travel, there will be frequent travel within Georgia.
