ACT Leadership Opportunities

Stanford ACT drives lasting community impact by engaging teams of GSB alumni who apply their expertise and passion to strengthen social benefit organizations.

If you’ve volunteered with ACT, you know the difference our work makes to nonprofits and to the important issues they address. You also know how fun and rewarding it is to work alongside other GSB alumni on meaningful pro bono engagements. ACT thrives on excellence and continual improvement, and we’re seeking people with ACT experience to serve in leadership roles to help run ACT and ensure that it continues to thrive. If this sounds fun and interesting, please consider applying for one of the ACT Management Committee roles listed below.

Management Committee Positions

About the Management Board

The ACT Management Committee (MC) partners with the ACT staff director to fulfill ACT’s mission to drive lasting community impact by engaging GSB alumni to apply their passion and expertise and to strengthen social benefit organizations. The MC is led by the ACT staff director, the one paid GSB staffer dedicated to ACT.

The ACT MC is composed of roll-up-your-sleeves alumni volunteers, each with a specific functional area of responsibility. Each MC member develops an annual work plan and executes against that plan.

By its own initiative, ACT made a commitment to advancing racial equity — a commitment that aligned neatly with Dean Levin’s Racial Equity Initiative in which he asked ACT to conduct projects for 50 organizations committed to inclusion and racial equity by the end of 2025. ACT has since completed 30 engagements toward Dean Levin’s goal! Each MB member incorporates ACT’s racial equity goal into his/her annual work plan.

The MC term starts in September and runs through August, meeting monthly via Zoom from 4:00–6:00 p.m. PT on the second Wednesday. Meetings are shortened or canceled if agenda items are light that month. The average time commitment for MC roles is 8 hours/month, including the monthly MC meeting. Some months will require less time; other months which feature a key deliverable may require more. Terms are typically two years.

Application Process

Please complete the ACT Management Committee Interest Form to express your interest in one of the above roles by August 15, 2023. An ACT representative will contact you about an interview by August 20 at the latest.

"I have enjoyed using my creative energy to plan fun events that celebrate our ACT community. We've done champagne and chocolate tastings, a theater night, an Outward Bound course, and much more. Everyone works so hard on their projects, and these sorts of events are a great way to reconnect with other alumni, reflect on our work, and enjoy new experiences."
