The primary responsibility of the Project Director is to coordinate the overall project. This will include city-wide listening and public-opinion research efforts to help ensure that all of our city’s residents and communities feel properly heard and engaged. The learnings gathered through that process will be amplified through mainstream and community media – including social, print, digital and broadcast media – as journalistic and public-service messaging collaborators, in pursuit of the goal that all Philadelphians feel informed, engaged, and heard.
