**Update 3/23/22. Thanks to all those who expressed an interest in these role! We're no longer accepting applications at this time.
We're excited to be expanding the IFS Institute team! We are looking to immediately add a Director of Talent Management and Director of Operations. We will also be adding a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Specialist in the near future.
As we sat down to write this note to the IFS community about our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) efforts, we recognized that while we have launched important projects and made progress, we also wanted to take a step back and create a statement of commitment. We wanted to be specific about our goals going forward, focus our efforts and be transparent and accountable to the community.

You can get a sense of his professional contribution from these loving tributes:

I hope you are staying safe and sane as we enter the 6th month of this COVID crisis. I’m writing today to thank my brother Jon for his years of devoted service as CEO of IFSI. As some of you may know we are currently engaged in a search for a new CEO, and before that transition I want to be sure to share with the community all the important ways Jon impacted this organization.
