Development Director – California Policy Lab
About the California Policy Lab
The California Policy Lab (CPL) creates research insights for government impact. Through hands-on partnerships with government agencies, CPL performs rigorous research across issue silos and builds the data infrastructure necessary to improve programs and policies that millions of Californians rely on every day. We focus our work in six policy areas: education, criminal justice reform, poverty and the social safety net, labor and employment, health, and homelessness and high needs populations. CPL recognizes the value of having a diverse staff at all levels of the organization. CPL-Berkeley is a center within the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE).
The Development Director will lead the Lab’s development efforts, securing philanthropic support to fund the Lab’s operations across both the UC Berkeley and UCLA headquarters, with fundraising also supporting research on other campuses across the UC system. They will report to the Executive Directors of each site at UCLA and UC Berkeley and will occasionally interact with faculty, researchers, and staff across the UC system, and coordinate with gift officers in other campus units as needed.
