Chief is changing the face of leadership. Our mission: build the most powerful network focused on connecting and supporting women leaders. Our members are VP and C-level executives across every industry who are leading their companies today and building a more equitable tomorrow. Chief was recently recognized as one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2021, and you can read more about us in Forbes or watch us on the Today Show.
Launched in early 2019, Chief is a Series B stage start-up backed by General Catalyst, Inspired Capital, Primary Ventures, CapitalG, and other top-tier investors. The Chief network includes 12,000+ members from across the United States. We are headquartered in New York City with additional Flagship spaces in Los Angeles, Chicago, and, soon, San Francisco.
We are tech-powered. Our members make meaningful connections, engage in compelling discussions, and view our unique content through our digital platform. Our Product and Technology teams are building the future of that platform, with data and insights at its heart.
The Director of Programming is a high-profile and critical role in both our brand and events department at Chief. This role is instrumental in establishing our strategy, development, and execution for our speaker, conversations, workshops and other programming for our live virtual events. This person will also play an integral role in developing the content of our inaugural Chief Conference in 2023 and beyond.
Chief has welcomed A-list speakers including Michelle Obama, Stacey Abrams, Gloria Steinem, Sara Blakely, Indra Nooyi, Tina Fey, Amal Clooney, Gwyenth Paltrow, and workshops led by professors from Harvard, Stanford, and Cambridge, and topics including operationalizing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, negotiation, personal branding and more.
This role will lead in contributing ideas, identifying talent, and developing our live content verticals across all of Chief’s markets. This role will report directly to the Sr. Director of Events and will work in close collaboration with our larger programming team, brand team, producers and event managers to bring our virtual and in-person events to life.
