Women Enabled International (WEI) is now accepting applications for the position of Executive Director. Building on the founding Executive Director’s leadership, this is an exciting opportunity to deepen the impact and reach of a unique global organization that advances the rights of women and girls with disabilities.
The Executive Director will lead strategic development and program priorities to influence global, regional and national levels, catalyze partnerships within the disability and feminist movements and manage a current staff of nine and organizational budget of about $1.5 million. The world we want requires not only a commitment to our mission, but also the bravery to uproot oppressive power structures and fuel disabled feminist leadership inside and outside WEI.

Key Responsibilities of the Executive Director:

Strategic Vision/Field Building:

  • Grow WEI’s leadership as the preeminent international legal advocacy organization advancing the rights of women and girls with disabilities worldwide and a key player within the broader feminist movement.
  • Working closely with a talented staff, develop and lead WEI legal strategies and program priorities. Manage advocacy trainings, consultations, and events that provide technical assistance, and resource and information sharing.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with external organizations, including feminist and disability rights organizations, and initiate and promote collective action to implement WEI’s advocacy priorities. Engage in coalitions, panels, consultations and public speaking.

Donor Relations: Manage and nurture strong relationships with current and potential donors, working closely with development staff. Cultivate relationships with new donors and spearhead, expand and diversify revenue sources.

Staff Management: Manage, hire, develop, and retain a diverse, highly skilled, collaborative and international team, providing oversight on substantive work along with a consultative management approach.

Financial Management: Ensure the long-term financial health and stability of the organization through strong financial management systems and policies. Oversee internal operations, including budget development and investment in operational capacity building.

Governance: Expand and facilitate engagement by WEI’s global Board of Directors, to support a growing organization. Collaborate with board members to implement and refine WEI’s strategic direction, financial and operational strength, and leadership in the field.

Organizational Development: Work to expand organizational resources to incorporate a senior level administrative and operational management position that will allow the Executive Director to increasingly focus on strategic outward facing engagement.
