Executive Director, Yale-China (雅礼协会)

The Yale-China Association (Yale-China) seeks an entrepreneurial, creative, and strategy-minded leader to serve as its next Executive Director. The Executive Director will have the opportunity to steer Yale-China into a new era of U.S.-China partnership by means of innovative programming, skillful relationship-building, and deft management of a nimble non-profit organization.

Founded more than 120 years ago by Yale alumni and faculty, Yale-China has evolved significantly over the decades and is poised for continued growth. The new Executive Director will work closely with the Board of Trustees, the Association’s eleven administrative staff members, and Yale-China’s many friends, partners, and alumni, to lead Yale-China into the next chapter of its remarkable history.

Yale-China (雅礼协会) bridges American and Chinese cultures by creating lasting, transformative partnerships and experiences in education, health, and the arts. Yale-China's work is characterized by long-term, bi-lateral, and bi-directional relationships designed to build institutional capacity, understanding, and cooperation between Americans and Chinese. It envisions a U.S.-China relationship of mutual understanding and profound respect nurtured by substantive collaboration and innovation among individuals and institutions.

The Executive Director is the chief executive and chief operating officer of Yale-China and reports to the Association’s 24-member Board of Trustees. The Executive Director is responsible for shaping and implementing the organization’s strategic vision through oversight of Yale-China’s programming, fundraising, staff, and finances. The Executive Director serves as the chief fundraiser and public face of Yale-China and works closely with board members, friends, current and former Fellows, and foundations to identify promising partnerships and initiatives.

The Executive Director should hold an advanced degree and be able to operate deftly in, and between, American and Chinese cultures. Doing so will require strong language skills in Mandarin Chinese and English and a high level of cultural sophistication and emotional intelligence in both Chinese and American cultures.
