The National Women’s Law Center seeks an experienced organizer and communicator to support issue campaigns and other initiatives that advance progress for women and girls at school, at work, at home, and in their communities.

The Campaign and Digital Strategies Senior Manager, centered on the Marketing & Communications team and reporting to the Director of Campaigns & Digital Strategies, will use both digital and offline tools to develop and implement compelling, creative and effective issue advocacy campaigns for the Center’s Education & Workplace Justice team.

The Organization

We are passionate champions of national and state policies and laws that help women and girls achieve their potential throughout their lives- at school, at work, at home, in their families, and in their communities. We are committed advocates who take on the toughest challenges, especially for women who face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and women who are low-income – and we make change happen. We are proud to have been on the front lines of virtually every major advance for women since 1972, benefiting women, their families, their communities, and the nation. The Law Center has a staff of more than 80 and an annual budget of more than $18 million. Guided by the organization’s strategic plan, the Law Center is growing in size, influence and impact, and making significant changes internally in systems, processes and culture to support this growth.
