Job Description:

Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, and we're dedicated to this mission across every aspect of our company. Microsoft's Public Affairs Communications Team is a group of professionals focused on telling stories that demonstrate the company's commitment to building trust and contributing to solutions for some of the world's big challenges. We work on issues at the intersection of technology, public policy, and societal impact. We manage external communications on topics that drive daily news cycles and public discussion about the impact of technology around the world and the responsibility of tech providers in the broader societal context. We're a multi-disciplinary, high-performing team with communications, marketing, and government affairs professionals. The Public Affairs Communications Team is also part of the broader Microsoft Communications Group, so you'll join a large, diverse community of professionals focused on innovative communications, and you'll have ample opportunities for career growth. - As the communications director leading the newly created Societal Impact team, you and the team are responsible to build and land strategic communications programs that support one of the three core pillars of "CELA 2025": our extraordinary opportunity to use technology to address some of society's biggest challenges. This is a key leadership role within CELA Public Affairs that spans a range of important topics that address key societal issues including: election security, disinformation, voting rights, protecting journalism, digital equity topics including skills for jobs, digital access and connectivity, community-based support and engagement programs, accessibility, justice reform, racial equity, tech for social impact (supporting nonprofits) and more. If you have a passion for societal impact and believe that technology has a role to play in helping address the world's hardest challenges, if you like big challenges, thrive in a fast paced and complex environment, and know how to influence traditional and new media - this is a role worth considering. This is a role with growth potential that will help develop and execute the communications strategy that shares our aspirations, programs, partnerships and initiatives that help address these significant societal issues and demonstrate our thought leadership on these important topics.
