Senior Vice President for Communications

Posted August 12, 2022

Helios Education Foundation
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Reports to: President

Helios Education Foundation exists to support postsecondary attainment for low-income and under-represented communities in Arizona and Florida. Driven by our fundamental beliefs of Community, Equity, Investment, and Partnership, Helios has invested nearly $300 million in partnerships and initiatives focused on improving education outcomes in the two states we serve.

THE OPPORTUNITY
Helios Education Foundation (Helios) seeks a Senior Vice President for Communications (SVP) to join the Foundation’s senior leadership team and spearhead Helios’s enterprise -wide communications strategy and execution. As Helios implements its ambitious Five-Year Impact Plan, focused on key drivers essential
to getting students on track for college attainment, the role of the SVP for Communications is mission - critical: leading Helios’s communications, brand and reputation management, and message creation and alignment in support of an integrated portfolio of investment, research, and policy efforts.

Helios is more than a grant-maker. Our strategy for delivering results in early learning, college access, and college attainment includes the integration of four key domains of our work. We seek to influence policy changes that can bring systemic improvements and to identify laser-focused community investments that can serve as a proof of concept for policy considerations and can lead to spreading effective practices. Original research and data drive our approaches. And, through each of these areas, strategic communication is used to amplify important insights and to build public will for effective improvements. In addition, Helios documents and assesses our efforts in each of these areas to understand our impact and continually refine our work for increased impact in the future.

The SVP for Communications will report directly to the President and oversee all the Foundation’s external and internal communications. Partnering with the President and the senior leadership team, the SVP will develop and manage execution of an annual communications approach that supports the Foundation’s Impact Plan. They will effectively design and implement a full suite of internal and external communications activities to foster a strong sense of community among the Helios team, as well as among grantees and key partners, and will enhance the Foundation’s reputation at the highest levels of education, research, and policy discourse in Arizona, Florida, and, where appropriate, nationally. The SVP for Communications will be located in Phoenix, and will be expected to travel to the office in Tampa.

The SVP will provide strategic, institution-wide communications counsel on thought leadership and brand management, support the development of organizational culture and change management efforts, and lead communications activities that amplify Helios’s policy and research efforts. Leading a team of communications staff members and consultants, the SVP will oversee enterprise-level digital efforts such as the website and Helios’s social platforms; support the design of and share learnings from Helios Education Campus convenings and partner events; support writing, editing, design, and promotion of Helios’s research publications; manage public relations and media efforts in Arizona and Florida; and liaise with internal teams to bring projects to life.

HELIOS EDUCATION FOUNDATION
Helios Education Foundation was created in 2004 through the conversion and sale of Southwest Student Services Corporation and began investing in education with an initial endowment of more than $500 million. In 2021, Helios launched its impact strategy, a targeted commitment to concentrate on improving outcomes for low-income and Latino students in Arizona and low-income and Black students in Florida, based on the belief that the Foundation’s actions in the near term will impact student outcomes for the next generation. The impact strategy is based on data showing that these student populations are those struggling the most.

Through a multi-pronged approach, the Foundation seeks to more effectively achieve significant improvements required to foster equitable progress across the education continuum. This integrated approach includes:

  • Performance-based community investments: With attention to the importance of place and the challenges of each state and the communities within them, Helios focuses on a combination of long-term strategic investments as well as new and innovative approaches to addressing intractable problems. To ensure the reach, influence, and impact of their investments, Helios also provides collaborative planning, strategic advice, and often communications, policy, and research support to partner organizations. With each investment, Helios serves as a change ally, collaborating to address challenges and to create a roadmap in Arizona and Florida to improve education outcomes.
  • Systemic public policy efforts: Helios seeks significant changes in education policies that support equitable education in both states, including commitments to education funding allocated more intentionally to those most in need of additional resources. The Foundation also serves as a thought leader, focusing the attention of policymakers and other influencers on solutions that provide the most leverage in getting students on track for college attendance and attainment. This includes leveraging the Foundation’s investments to serve as proof of concept and a catalyst for policy changes, as well as the strategic use of the ASU Helios Decision Center for Educational Excellence.
  • Research and data: Helios works directly with the state departments of education, boards of education, and other key stakeholders to influence educational outcomes in both Arizona and Florida. As a thought leader in postsecondary attainment, the Foundation carries out independent research—at Helios and in partnership with strategic stakeholders—that identifies solutions to educational inequity. This enables Helios to ground the Foundation’s investment and policy strategies in research and data, thereby increasing their chance of backing the best approaches and having the greatest impact in preparing students for success in college and in life.
  • Helios Education Campus: Opened in 2021, the 65,000-square-foot, architecturally sophisticated Helios Education Campus enables collaboration, community, and partnership. The Phoenix Campus is home to the Foundation’s main offices and key Arizona education partners Aliento, Education Forward Arizona, and Teach for America–Phoenix. The flagship Vince Roig Convening Center provides state-of-art facilities on the Campus to enable collaboration and partnership among education stakeholders. The Helios Decision Theater, at the center of the Campus, is part of the ASU Helios Decision Center for Educational Excellence, a collaborative partnership between the Foundation and the university. Decision Center centralizes data so that researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and investors can more effectively understand the current education landscape and system and visualize the impact of potential new policies and solutions on education outcomes.

PRIORITIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
This role is designed for someone who sees communications and engagement as a lever for making a meaningful difference in the education outcomes and opportunities of low -income and under-represented students. Helios Education Foundation seeks a creative and experience d communications strategist with the emotional intelligence to communicate effectively with diverse audiences and to integrate the communications needs of several internal departments into cohesive and impactful external and internal communications strategies, messages, and activities.
