Please spread the word: MHC is hiring a Program Coordinator!!!

The Maine Humanities Council is seeking someone exceptional to join our team.  In this complex world, the MHC uses old-school tools  books, poetry, history, big ideas  to foster meaningful connection and positive change in communities throughout Maine.

The MHC believes we are stronger the more fully we see and reflect the diversity of our communities. We work toward equity, accessibility, inclusion, and representation of diverse experiences and perspectives. Our work takes the long view, takes humanity seriously, and requires commitment and delight. We invite you to apply. The MHC is in the process of aligning our work with diversity and equity-based principles in order to acknowledge and address the marginalization that exists in our culture and within the humanities.

As we grow our staff, the MHC is committed to enhancing our connections in the most rural parts of Maine. While our offices are located in Portland, most of the job will be remote work, and we invite candidates from all parts of Maine  particularly from rural areas  to apply. As we continue to expand our reach to all people living in Maine, we are excited to offer programming and opportunities that are accessible to people traditionally underrepresented in the humanities, including people who speak languages other than English, people with disabilities, and people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. We particularly invite candidates with roots and connections in these communities to apply.

Our work environment at the MHC is collaborative and team-focused. We value a work environment where the ideas, perspectives, and work of all staff members can move us forward.
