About CHT’s Training Partnerships Lead Role

This role is for someone who cares deeply about changing the mindsets of people who influence runaway extractive technology. Our online course, Foundations of Humane Technology, is part of an evolving body of material that equips a growing movement with core principles, frameworks, and practices to advance more humane technologies. Over 15,000 people are already enrolled, with interest from a wide range of partners.

The Training Partnerships Lead will focus on distributing our material to strategic partners such as powerfully-positioned tech companies, undergraduate engineering schools, policymakers, and the AI community. For each audience, this role will involve researching the landscape of existing educational offerings, identifying strategic distribution partners, building and maintaining relationships, working with the Training Team to package material appropriately, and tracking impact. This person should deeply believe in the ideas we have to share, and be driven to find and connect with those who can benefit most from them. 

Insights from this work will inform our overall strategy and decision-making. The Training Partnerships Lead will collaborate closely with our Innovation Lead, Andrew Dunn, and reports to CHT Co-Founder Randima (Randy) Fernando.
