VEGAN LEADERS is a 501c3 non-profit based in San Diego, California with a worldwide reach and a virtual team. Our mission is to "empower employees to bring plant-based initiatives into their workplace. By doing this, we also help companies strengthen their environmental and social commitment, and raise corporate awareness of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle."

We are looking for a volunteer to help build and publish new content through our website, social media, newsletters and other communications. This experience can help you build valuable skills (marketing, writing, data analysis and visualization, presentation, design and web publishing). You would not be expected to write original pieces such as blog posts. Instead, you would complete steps to gather data and build content based on guidance provided (while using some personal creativity and judgment). Also, you would complete various projects such as updates to specific web pages. You could have some say in choosing projects which interest you the most based on skills you want to build.

You would work closely with our senior management team (all volunteers with accomplished corporate careers) with an opportunity to learn about strategy and other aspects of running a global non-profit.

The expected time commitment is 2-5 hours per week for the duration of 6 months. This will include some live meetings and work sessions but it’s mostly flexible work on your own schedule.

QUALIFICATIONS AND COMMITMENT:

An ideal candidate will have a completed (or in-progress) college degree, with strong interest and some experience with web/social media content. A business degree and/or work experience is preferred.

Proficient business English skills and at least some experience with office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and equivalent) are a must. Experience with web content building platforms such as Squarespace, Airtable, PowerBI and similar is a big plus but it is not required if the candidate is willing to learn and comfortable working with online tools. The candidates should understand dynamics in a typical corporate environment and have some knowledge of the vegan/plant-based movement, to be able to select and prepare content fitting our audience.

Your own laptop/computer with reliable high-speed internet connection is required.

This is a remote position that could be held from anywhere in the world - however location in the Americas or EMEA time zones would be best for meeting times and interaction with our team. Flexible time commitment of at least 2 hours and no more than 5 hours per week is expected. You need to be reachable by email when needed, and will be expected to meet agreed deadlines and to join agreed calls.

This is an unpaid position. During this volunteer experience, you should be able to acquire highly marketable skills. You will also have direct access to very senior professionals who are part of our leadership team, to request mentoring, career advice, skill coaching and similar. At the end of your successful volunteer assignment, you will be eligible for a Board position if interested. We can also provide a letter of recommendation or reference for future jobs.

About VEGAN LEADERS

Location:

6109 CRAWFORD ST, SAN DIEGO, CA 92120, US

Mission Statement

VEGAN LEADERS is a global community for vegans working in corporate (esp. Fortune 500) management and business functions. Our purpose is to a) demonstrate the pro-vegan trend among business leaders, b) provide a peer network for corporate vegan influencers, c) engage members in valuable discussions and initiatives.

Description

The rising trend of vegans in the business world to a large degree mirrors the trend in the overall society (unprecedented public discussion of veganism, unprecedented supply and demand of vegan alternatives, etc.) Additionally, business professionals might particularly be drawn to the vegan lifestyle, and find it highly compatible with their existing driven, informed and responsible lifestyle. This is not a widely discussed or recognized theory but conceptually, many values that define good business leaders (integrity, care, knowledge, innovation, initiative and self-improvement) are the same as the values that underlie the vegan philosophy.
