On behalf of WEI’s Governing Board, we are excited to launch the search for WEI’s next Executive Director (ED). As those of us in the U.S. now face the most serious threat to legal abortion in decades, our work—and the need for exceptional leadership—has never been more critical.

Building on more than a decade of global leadership advancing the rights of women, girls, and nonbinary people with disabilities, our next ED will join WEI at an exciting and pivotal time for the organization and the movement.

Our programs are stronger and more relevant than ever. Under Suzannah Phillips’ guidance as our Interim ED, the staff has worked tirelessly to strengthen our organizational capacity, deepen our commitment to disability justice and feminist values, and ensure that WEI is well positioned to embrace the future.

Please help us spread the word as we seek a strategic, forward-thinking leader and skilled nonprofit strategist to deepen the reach and expand the impact of WEI’s work at the global, regional, and national levels. We are looking to cast a wide net and attract the most diverse and qualified applicant pool possible.
