Remote, Remote

The Collaborative for Gender + Reproductive Equity (CGRE) is an active, learning community of donors and foundations uniting to advance gender, reproductive, and racial equity. CGRE combines a rigorous, data-driven funding strategy, deep expertise around movement needs and priorities, and trust and credibility with a robust network of national and local partners. Since launching, CGRE has provided over $86.7 million in funding to more than 100 grantee organizations, half of which are led by women of color.

The Gender Equity Action Fund (GEAF) is the only active community of 501(c)(4) funders brought together by a shared mission of protecting and advancing gender, reproductive, and racial equity with game-changing investments. Created in 2019 as an aligned, independent fund to the 501(c)(3) CGRE, GEAF shares the values of prioritizing the work of BIPOC and women-led groups and for creating the conditions for success through state level electoral and policy wins.

CGRE and GEAF seek a Director of Advocacy and Judicial Strategies to lead their advocacy, legislative, and state-judicial grantmaking agendas.

Operating remotely, the Director of Advocacy and Judicial Strategies (the Director), working with the Executive Director, will lead the work of GEAF, the 501(c)(4), and participate as a team member on CGRE, the 501(c)(3). They will work collaboratively with the CGRE team, as well as consultants, outside groups, and grantees to build effective strategies for success, and communicate regularly with the community of donors and Board members on general progress. The ideal Director will have policy and advocacy experience (federal or multi-state) and bring together skills and relationships across a combination of legal and judicial advocacy, issue-specific advocacy, and/or voter engagement and electoral campaign strategies. The Director’s qualifications include:

  • 15 years of progressive experience in organizations advancing gender and racial equity. Direct knowledge of these issues is required, as is a commitment to advancing reproductive justice.
  • A deep understanding of the political landscape, particularly with regard to gender, reproductive rights and racial equity.
  • An understanding of the strategy and tactics used by 501(c)3 and 501(c) 4 organizations, including experience with rapid response to significant current events.
  • Commitment to racial and gender equity and can translate that commitment into powerful strategy, program and processes that drive toward equity.
  • Flexible and eager to contribute to a relatively new team, with an “all hands on deck” approach as responsibilities continue to be developed and refined.
  • Experience working with a high-level Board and in philanthropy a plus, but not required.

CGRE will pay a salary of $180,000 with excellent benefits.
