Many of the pieces are already in place, but there’s still a lot of work to be done to build the right systems, bring the right people together and rally the team around clear metrics.

This role will be a hinge pin to the success of the OM Mobilization and Scatter Teams. Carrying responsibility to manage multiple projects and relationships across the teams and the Mobilization Working Group.
