Working at MacArthur

The Foundation is a fast-paced and intellectually stimulating workplace, rich with opportunities to learn, grow and make a contribution to important, meaningful work. In pursuit of a world that is more just, verdant, and peaceful, the Foundation strives to be an exceptional place to work, guided by a number of simple principles regarding how we approach our work, how we partner with others, and how we contribute to, shape, and improve our shared work environment. These include respect, integrity, creativity, collaboration, learning, opportunity, and diversity.



“The Foundation welcomes and actively seeks a diverse staff. We benefit as individuals and the work is better because of our staff’s diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences. I value diversity at all levels of the Foundation, and am committed to continually challenging us to reflect this value in our actions.”

— Julia Stasch, President
