The work of the Open Society Foundations is infinitely complex. This video seeks to capture the emotions as well as the facts, the passions as well as the strategies, and the ethics as well as the histories that make the Open Society enterprise so impressive.

• medical/prescription/dental insurance
• flexible spending plans: FSA/DCA/transportation
• pension plan
• vacation, personal, and sick leave
• tuition reimbursement
• paid parental leave
• flexible work arrangement
• daily catered lunch or lunch allowance
The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.
We seek to strengthen the rule of law; respect for human rights, minorities, and a diversity of opinions; democratically elected governments; and a civil society that helps keep government power in check.
We help to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights.
We implement initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media.
We build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information.
Working in every part of the world, the Open Society Foundations place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities. – less
