Program Director

The EICC® is a non-profit organization committed to helping our 80+ international members understand and improve the social and environmental challenges and opportunities in the global electronics supply chain. Our vision is to help our members build an electronics industry supply chain that consistently operates with social, environmental and economic responsibility. We are the premier organization for advancing social and environmental initiatives in the industry.
Through facilitating collaboration among the EICC, our members and external stakeholders, we work with our members to develop supply chain capabilities to assess and address social and environmental risks as they relate to our Code of Conduct. We also focus on issues that are a priority to our members, including emerging issues that are not well understood. This forward-thinking approach helps develop best practices for EICC members. Responding to immediate and critical issues helps build partnerships, develop industry understanding, and foster a root-cause and solutions-oriented approach. The EICC, founded in 2004, recently transitioned from being managed by member volunteers to a paid staff. We are currently seeking a Program Director for this dynamic and growing organization!
