The Thomas Jefferson Foundation seeks a dynamic professional to
lead our efforts to make Monticello a more welcoming and inclusive
workplace. We seek a Vice President of Diversity, Equity,
Accessibility and Inclusion (DEAI) to work across the organization

of our work. As part of our leadership team, this role reports
directly to our President and supervises three direct reports.
The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that owns and
operates Monticello in Charlottesville, VA, the historic site
plantation home of Thomas Jefferson and hundreds of people, free
and enslaved, who also lived and labored here. Our mission is to
preserve this unique historic site and to share an honest,
complicated, inclusive view of its history. We believe it is an
essential place to explore the ideals and contradictions of
American's founding era and its legacies in the modern world.
Monticello is a UNESCO World Heritage site and part of the
International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
Candidates for the VP of DEAI will be able to embrace the
complex history of our site and lead us into a new era committed to
