Manager, External Communications and Events, CATALYZE
The CATALYZE Portfolio based out of Palladium’s Washington, D.C. office is currently seeking a Manager, External Communications and Events to lead the development of regular, high-quality, external-facing communications materials for the CATALYZE program.
CATALYZE is a $250 million eight-year program, designed to mobilize $2 billion in private capital, especially to underfinanced social sectors (such as education) and higher risk countries (especially low-income and post-conflict countries) around the globe, complemented by a cross-cutting inclusion of gender-lens investing. CATALYZE will serve as a “platform of platforms” that will provide services to many missions and bureaus that “buy in” to tap the CATALYZE investment and pay-for-results project management expertise. The aim is for investors to explore and find commercially viable opportunities and approaches to creating jobs, developing sustainable social services, tightening, and rationalizing supply chains, and advancing inclusive growth – ultimately, reducing the need for development institutions to provide donor funding.
The Manager, External Communications and Events will be responsible for leading the development of regular, high-quality, external-facing communications materials for the broader CATALYZE program and the eight CATALYZE Activities, supporting CATALYZE participation in/hosting of industry webinars and events, and supporting CATALYZE Activity teams to implement successful high-level events in the field.
