Organization Profile
 Haiyya is a mission-based apolitical organization that promotes leadership and community building as a means to foster civic engagement across neighbourhoods in urban India. Haiyya believes in the neighbourhood as the unit of change to counter poor governance and provides platforms for training and action for neighbourhood action. Our leaders range in religious, socio-economic and educational backgrounds as we believe community strength and power is driven from working across lines of difference on shared challenges. Using a combination of in-classroom and on-field issue-based campaign actions, ordinary citizens are trained to develop their own leadership and that of others to build power and create positive social change in their own local areas. Our framework, adapted from Marshall Ganz’s organizational model, includes the development of effective working relationships, narrative to provide context, strategy to mobilize resources, structure to create teams and action to provide measurable effects.

 

Our vision is to break through urban apathy and create a citizenry that is not only aware of its rights but willing and able to act to make a difference in their communities. Haiyya fulfills this vision through three main activities: 1) Training on leadership & community building, 2) Issue-based campaign execution, and 3) Strategy development, incubation, and consulting.

 

Haiyya is led by Deepti Doshi, a social entrepreneur whose experience in leadership and social change spans across management consulting, executive coaching, social investing, and launching an education venture for low-cost private schools in India. She studied management at Wharton Business School and completed her Masters in Public Administration at Harvard Kennedy School where she focused on community organizing and civic participation.

 

Profile Description
 This position reports to the Experience Designer and is responsible for ensuring that all logistics for the events planned are meticulously managed.

 

·         Work closely with internal and external event planning committees and client groups to define the event goals, objectives and specific implementation plans that promote Haiyya’s brand.

·         Negotiate agreements with outside vendors for the best quality at the lowest cost of service.

  • Managing the supply of materials from internal and external teams so that the event is organized smoothly.
  • Ensuring all air and ground arrangements for events are taken care of.
  • Working with the Experience Designer to create a strategy for making the Haiyya event an inspiring experience.
Experience
 ·         Collaboration: You enjoy collaborating with other organizations and find a way of making it work. It is always a “we” and “us” for you.

·         Excellent time management skills: You are able to work towards tight deadlines, manage multiple projects at a time, prioritize, able to see the bigger picture and formulate a strategic plan to get there.

·         A commitment to the development of others: You believe that we all do better when we all do better, and that a rising tide lifts all boats. Seeing someone else grow into themselves personally and professionally sends a shiver down your spine.

·         Attention to detail: You think, maybe at times too much, that details are the glue that holds society together. Does an un-dotted “i” or un-crossed “t” freak you out? Us too!

·         Entrepreneurial spirit: We want people who are self-drivers and who live for building things. Do you get thrilled (as opposed to petrified) by a blank page or ambiguity because it means you have the freedom to build your own vision? Come work with us.

·         Desire to learn:If you think you have all the answers, you just haven’t thought hard enough. As an organization we want to be constantly learning, iterating, and making ourselves better. We expect the same of our fellows and will build an extensive and individualized program with you to make sure that you grow and maximize your potential while here.

·         “Prophetic Imagination”:When Deepti first said this we thought she was just making up phrases. It was actually coined by a very smart guy named Walter Brueggerman, and means: “a combination of criticality (especially of world’s pain) with hope (experience of the world’s possibility); avoiding being numbed by despair or deluded by optimism.” You have this.

·         Cultural competency:Fluency in both Hindi and English is strongly preferred, as is residence in or previous work in India.

 

Compensation and Location: HAIYYA offers a competitive compensation package commensurate with experience. Role is based in Mumbai, India.
