The way we work has changed, our families have changed - but care hasn’t. With millennials becoming parents and Baby Boomers getting older, the need for care is surging. Yet many people can’t just rely on family for the support they need, and paid caregivers barely make enough to support their own families.
About Caring Across Generations
Caring Across Generations (CAG) is a national campaign working to make care more affordable and accessible at every stage of life, while making sure caregivers, people with disabilities and aging adults are treated with respect and dignity. Founded in 2011 by Sarita Gupta and Ai-jen Poo, our campaign is focused on creating change in three ways: convening a powerful coalition of state and national care organizations to advocate for the transformation of our nation’s care infrastructure, , fighting for groundbreaking policy at the state and federal level, and changing hearts and minds through storytelling and cultural organizing.
Caring Across Generations is seeking a Digital Director who will grow and lead our digital program. The Director will increase the visibility and engagement of the caregivers who comprise the core of our Caring Majority and bring new and representative caregivers into our campaign to transform how care is given, received and valued in this country.
The Digital Director, reporting to the Managing Director, will work closely with all teams and provide the campaign with the best digital strategic guidance and expertise to advance our mission. They should be an experienced leader, ready to direct and mentor a small but mighty team of digital professionals. They will lead the day-to-day operations of the digital team, overseeing the website - including a redesign, social media, SMS, and email strategy for the organization.
They will have a big-picture, campaign-focused mindset that is informed by a deep understanding of the audience journey that can be accomplished through our digital platforms. The ideal candidate is a creative and strategic thinker, a person who will use their talents and drive in service of the campaign and our goals. They will be a proactive communicator who builds and operationalizes strategies and plans for the long-term, but who can also jump into rapid response when the moment calls for it, delivering high-quality work quickly and on deadline.

Oversee the day-to-day operations of the digital program and manage a high-functioning, creative, agile and responsive team of full-time staff and vendors.
