Appointed as Editor, New America
New America is committed to renewing American politics, prosperity, and purpose in the digital age. We generate big ideas, bridge the gap between technology and policy, and curate broad public conversation. We combine the best of a policy research institute, technology laboratory, public forum, media platform, and a venture capital fund for ideas. We are a distinctive community of thinkers, writers, researchers, technologists, and community activists who believe deeply in the possibility of American renewal. The Editor will join the Better Life Lab team at New America and be responsible for a new Better Life Lab media partnership, resulting in a Better Life Lab “channel.” The Better Life Lab channel will be a hub of fresh and compelling ideas about the future of work, gender equity, and social policy for 21st century families—how they are interconnected and how they engage (and are engaged by) popular culture and the lived reality of readers’ everyday lives. The editor will manage the Better Life Lab content stream by soliciting, editing, and publishing a daily blog and longer pieces and features produced by the Better Life Lab editorial team and outside contributors. The editor will work with New America’s communications and editorial team along with a media partner to set a responsive social media strategy for both content and events.
