Memphis Mayor A C Wharton’s office has announced seven open positions on the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team.
Memphis earlier this year was chosen by Bloomberg Philanthropies as one of five U.S. cities (along with Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Ky., and New Orleans) to receive a three-year grant to fund a team dedicated to developing effective solutions to tackle some of the city’s most pressing challenges. The history-making grants represents one of the largest private-sector commitments ever focused on social innovation.
The team of seven, which will be housed within the mayor’s office, will be charged with reducing handgun violence, particularly among juveniles, and supporting economic growth in core Memphis neighborhoods. According to the mayor’s blog, his office is looking for “bold, visionary urban leaders excited about the prospect of working in a collaborative, innovative environment to generate the new solutions that will help Memphis – and all American cities – advance and prosper.”
