Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) will be hiring one organizer to help run MAP International. Our ideal candidate is highly organized, dependable, motivated, and enthusiastic about MAP and its mission. MAP is a collection of students in philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. It currently comprises over 180 chapters worldwide and continues to grow and expand.The role of International Organizers is largely to facilitate the success of MAP chapters and oversee the development of the larger organization. Thus, responsibilities include: meeting regularly with the other International Organizers (roughly twice a month), making decisions regarding the growth of MAP regions and projects, coordinating with outside organizations (like the APA and funders), responding to chapter funding requests, updating the website and social media pages, advertising events, collating lists of chapter activities, touching base with chapter organizers, fundraising on MAP's behalf and more. Organizers are also expected to produce periodic reports on MAP's activities: in the fall, a report of plans for the upcoming academic year, and in the spring, a report of the year's activities. Organizers are also expected to compile this information around October of each year into an annual report for our funding partner, the Marc Sanders Foundation.
Additionally, MAP International Organizers work on projects meant to set the agenda for important interventions on behalf of marginalized groups in philosophy (such as our project on service work in 2019-2020 and our fundraising campaign in 2020-2021). In this capacity, Organizers have substantial freedom to propose and take up specific cause areas and are expected to be proactive. Some of the responsibilities associated with this dimension of the role include: collecting resources, running surveys, collecting input from MAP members, writing reports and blog posts, producing and distributing infographics and other social media materials, and hosting APA Group sessions (and sessions at other conferences).
Organizers receive a modest honorarium for their work.
We especially encourage Black, Indigenous, and people of color to apply to these positions.
