The National Women’s Law Center seeks a Director of Workplace Equality to coordinate and drive its federal policy efforts to address the discrimination that women experience on the job, with a particular focus on the needs of women in low-paid jobs. Priority areas of focus include advancing equal pay, preventing and remedying workplace harassment, and strengthening protections against pregnancy discrimination. All of these efforts are to be shaped by a gender justice and racial justice analysis and include a focus on the rights of LGBTQ individuals. The Director of Workplace Equality sits on the Education & Workplace Justice program team.
The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice—in the courts, in public policy, and in our society—working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls.
We use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and to break down the barriers that harm all of us—especially women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families.
For almost 50 years, we have been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women. Find out more at NWLC.org.
