The Women Deliver Board of Directors is seeking a new President/CEO.
An extraordinary opportunity for a visionary leader with a deep commitment to gender equality and improving the health and rights of girls and women, in all their intersecting identities.
Headquartered in New York City, Women Deliver is a leading global advocate that champions gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women. A strong advocate, eminent convener, and effective communicator, Women Deliver works in new ways to advance solutions and action on gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Women Deliver is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
Women Deliver’s mission is to improve the well-being of girls and women, in all their intersecting identities, and to drive progress for gender equality. Their programmatic work includes, but is not limited to, participating in this year’s Generation Equality Forum, hosting the next Women Deliver Conference (WD2023), supporting their many partners in the global and national Deliver for Good Campaign, and championing the Women Deliver Young Leaders Program. Women Deliver collaborates with many allies, networks, and coalitions to advance its mission and achieve shared goals.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President/CEO of Women Deliver will be an unrelenting champion for the health and rights of all girls and women and bring global experience with a focus on solutions and actions. The organization seeks an individual who will inspire; challenge the status quo; share a strong commitment to diversity, anti-racism, and decolonization; deepen Women Deliver’s focus within gender equality and SRHR; and lead the implementation of Women Deliver’s new Strategic Framework. A foundational element of the Strategic Framework is Women Deliver’s commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization grounded in anti-colonialist, intersectional feminist principles, while fostering a culture of respect and inclusion for all. Women Deliver refers to this as their transformation, which you can read more about on their website here.
The successful candidate will be a persistent advocate, an inspirational communicator, driven by a need to address the inequalities of today’s world to build a better future for all. Valuing internal and external-facing leadership equally, the President/CEO will lead by example, empowering staff and stakeholders, and providing impactful leadership for the progress of all girls and women. As a public-facing leader of a global organization, the President/CEO will serve as Women Deliver’s representative and ambassador, while ensuring more diverse voices are elevated. They will play a key role in building strategic alliances and collaborating with the organization’s many allies, networks, and coalitions in order to achieve shared goals and advance the organization’s place at the forefront of the gender equality and SRHR movement. They will also lead the development and execution of Women Deliver Conferences in 2023 and beyond; diversify and grow funding bases; foster a culture that embraces intersectional feminist principles; and work to build and ensure a global structure for the organization.

To self-nominate or to nominate a candidate, please send a cover letter of interest and resume, CV, or biographical sketch (if self-nominating) or a referral letter and a biographical sketch (if nominating another person) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
