About the David and Lucile Packard Foundation

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation is where the Program Analyst will work. The Packard Foundation was established in 1964. David and Lucile Packard believed that along with universities, national institutions, community groups, youth agencies, family planning centers, and hospitals, foundations constitute a great American tradition that complements government efforts to focus on society's needs. The foundation's mission is to work with people and communities to create enduring solutions for just societies and a healthy, resilient natural world. Through a recent strategic planning process, the foundation identified three overarching, interdependent goals to guide the Foundation's work: Protect and Restore Our Natural World, Invest in Families and Communities, and Build Just Societies.

About the Ocean Initiative

The Ocean Initiative focuses on developing and implementing solutions that protect and restore ocean habitats and communities, achieve equitable and sustainable fisheries, end illegal fishing and human and worker rights abuses in seafood supply chains, and harness ocean-based climate solutions.

About the Global Climate Initiative

The Global Climate Initiative focuses on making standing forests more valuable than cut forests, changing national policies so that they result in forest protection, and supporting communities that are trying to keep their forests standing - all while delivering sustainable development and promoting an inclusive rural transformation.
