Managing necessary department operations:

  • Reporting on key departmental metrics
  • Performing regular database maintenance
  • Creating and managing budgets 
  • Coordinating the work between advocates on the ground and internal Public Interest Network departments
  • Helping facilitate meetings with our team and boards
