America Votes Case Study

We helped America Votes build their diverse team of exceptional leaders

In 2019 and 2020, Grossman Solutions worked closely with America Votes to help them grow and build a diverse leadership team.

Grossman Solutions helped America Votes assess the roles they needed and the types of leaders they wanted through our thorough and inclusive stakeholder interview process. Speaking with staff and organizational partners at all levels helped us gain a deep understanding of the organization and the kinds of leaders that would be most successful. We then crafted detailed job descriptions to meet those needs.

For each position, Grossman Solutions recruited a wide pool of candidates from across the country through our networks and carefully targeted outreach. We worked hand-in-hand with the team at America Votes throughout the process, from screening resumes, to interviews, to the final evaluation and vetting process.

As COVID-19 became a reality, Grossman Solutions was able to create a completely remote hiring process that was as robust as our in-person one. Working closely with America Votes and potential candidates, we were able to continue to interview and help hire and onboard key leadership, even in this tumultuous time.

In all, Grossman Solutions helped America Votes hire their Chief of Staff, Political Director, Data Director, Director of Talent and People Operations, as well as a Deputy Field Director and Deputy Political Director.  America Votes has built a deeply diverse team of talented leaders who bring a range of life experiences and skills that help the organization build progressive power every day.
