the American Cities Climate Challenge (ACCC). The American Cities Climate
Challenge is an unprecedented opportunity for 20 ambitious cities to
significantly deepen and accelerate their efforts to tackle climate change
and promote a sustainable future for their residents. The City Advisor will
work with city officials to develop and execute a robust communications and
public engagement strategy to reduce carbon emissions through
transportation policies and programs with potential to work on buildings
policies and programs. The City Advisor will be part of a network of
similar positions located in cities across the country to support these
building, energy, and transportation initiatives and will therefore be
engaged at the local, regional, and national levels to advance the city’s
goals. The position will interface with key influencers and decision-makers
within city government, the real estate and/or transportation sector,
utilities, industry, and other organizations in the community. Outreach to
communities of color and other stakeholders often underrepresented in civic
forums will also be a special focus of this position.

This position will be based in Seattle’s Office of Sustainability and
Environment (OSE), an executive office of Mayor Jenny A. Durkan, which
designs, coordinates, and pilots leading-edge policies and programs to
achieve Seattle’s ambitious environmental goals. OSE has a strong
commitment to advancing racial equity by connecting issues of race and
social justice with issues of environment and public health. The successful
candidate will share this commitment.
This position will be located in Seattle, WA.
