The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with TEDxMileHigh in the search for an Executive Director.

The Executive Director will launch and lead the grant writing program and fundraising events strategy, expand corporate and foundation partnerships, and grow the membership program while enhancing and refining donor activities. The Executive Director will play a key role in external relationship management and defining strategic initiatives as well as working with the management team to provide oversight to the team. The Executive Director will play a significant role in building TEDxMileHigh during its next chapter.

TEDxMileHigh is a nonprofit that exists to spread big ideas and elevate inspired citizenship. It is a community of thinkers and doers, ideators and creators, activists and enthusiasts. TEDxMileHigh showcases innovators, no matter the sector, who each give the ‘talk of their life’ around the power of ideas. This diverse group of thought leaders and innovators educate, inspire, and stimulate change with the ultimate goal being deep discussion and action across communities. TEDxMileHigh content examines the ways the social, economic, and political systems need to change: Roughly 50% of its 120 million views relate directly to issues of equity and criminal justice reform. TEDxMileHigh is committed to amplifying the voices of BIPOC individuals, as well as voices from other under-represented communities.

TEDxMileHigh is made possible by the work and effort of the broader community: inspiring attendees, the efforts of a large, committed team, deep involvement from partners and sponsors, and hundreds of brilliant innovators who contribute their “Ideas Worth Spreading.”

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference, an independent organization, provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available for free. TED’s media initiatives include, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; and the educational initiative, TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

At least five years of revenue-generation experience is preferred for this position. TEDxMileHigh welcomes candidates that do not meet every qualification but are passionate about spreading big ideas and elevating inspired citizenship in Colorado. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of TEDxMileHIgh as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus. The salary range for this position is $75,000 to $145,000 annually.
