Position Description

Open Environmental Data Project supports communities in making collective decisions about their own data and centers the creation of inclusive socio-technical systems that value and highlight multiple forms of data. The Data Inclusion Specialist will help improve and sustain OEDP’s data collection and stewardship processes, and work across our Research and Policy programs to apply nuances in the collection, discovery, access, use, interpretation, and inclusion of diverse environmental data in our governance systems. By designing data stewardship initiatives alongside our team and partners, their work will improve understanding, at OEDP and in their broader networks, of how different actors, sectors, and communities collect, find, interpret, use, and share environmental data.
