Environmental Incentives’ Mission is to enhance the environments that sustain healthy communities. We empower public and private sector leaders to maximize the effectiveness of their conservation and development programs. Our clients trust us to design and support implementation of programs that (1) use evidence to develop effective strategies within complex systems, (2) center local stakeholder experiences and facilitate collective action, and (3) produce results that support learning about what works. Environmental Incentives is a certified B Corporation with offices located in Washington, DC, South Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Nairobi, and Lima (pending registration). Our remote staff and consultants are based in multiple states within the United States, and across five continents.
Environmental Incentives seeks to hire one or two MI2 Learning and Organizational Development Team Leads to join our growing Biodiversity Portfolio to support USAID’s Measuring Impact II (MI2) activity. Under this activity, we are working with USAID’s Biodiversity Division to increase the effectiveness of biodiversity conservation programming by finding out what works, what doesn’t, and why. Through support to USAID’s Biodiversity cross mission learning program, MI2 is helping to connect USAID staff, facilitate knowledge and experience sharing, and foster collaboration to capture and share global lessons for common conservation strategic approaches.
The work of the MI2 team includes assisting USAID staff to incorporate core concepts of the Conservation Standards into activity design, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and learning; conducting research, evaluations, and assessments; planning and facilitating workshops and learning activities (virtual and in-person as circumstances allow); developing communications plans and products and ensuring excellent knowledge management; and delivering Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning support. This includes support to agency-wide and regional learning agendas, establishing and nurturing learning networks, identifying and filling evidence gaps through assessments, case studies, or literature review, and organizing learning events such as webinars and conferences.
The MI2 Learning and Organizational Development Team Lead(s) will focus on leading teams and working with clients to synthesize and scale learning approaches to increase the effectiveness of biodiversity programs. You will also be expected to quickly grasp complex coordination needs and set clear paths for team members and clients alike, managing adaptively in response to emerging priorities.
To help our clients advance and stay at the cutting edge of what they do, we seek to motivate employees to learn, discover, and grow. As an MI2 Learning and Organizational Development Team Lead, you will be taking on a variety of client- and internally focused tasks that include technical project implementation and project management.

Our team members are talented, creative, and inspired professionals who provide technical support in a growing practice while being flexible enough to add their unique perspectives to our company’s culture. If you are passionate and thrive on teamwork, you are probably a great fit for our team!
