National Partnership for Women & Families

Washington, D.C.


The National Partnership for Women & Families (“Partnership”), a leading nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and families, seeks a passionate and strategic leader to serve as its next President. This is a critical leadership transition for the Partnership and the next President will lead the organization in a new and exciting era of change with a collaborative, values-based approach to better the lives of women and families.


The Partnership has been at the forefront of every major piece of civil rights legislation related to women and families, including the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Affordable Care Act, and the American Rescue Plan. The organization accomplishes its work through advocacy in both the public and private sectors and at the federal, state, and local levels. The strategies include the following: policy research and analysis; technical assistance to policymakers, media, and allies; leadership and participation in diverse coalitions and stakeholder relationships, public education, and public engagement. In its work, the Partnership seeks to amplify the leadership of grassroots groups and women of color who are fighting for social justice. The COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath brought many of the Partnership’s long-standing priorities – like paid sick days and paid family and medical leave, and accessible, equitable healthcare – to the forefront of the national conversation. The next President will have the opportunity to build on decades of progress toward these priorities during an unprecedented moment of mainstream support.


With a 50-year history of impact and achievement, an approximately $19 million endowment, and an annual budget of $10 million, the National Partnership is well-positioned for its next chapter. The next President will work with a dedicated Board of Directors and a talented, mission-driven staff of 45 to sharpen the Partnership’s strategic vision for continued impact, aligning programmatic resources with a vision to meet the moment we are in and to drive the change in which we as an organization believe. They will work closely with the Board to evolve organizational structure and policies, raise funds, and represent the Partnership with its stakeholders and the media. The President will champion equitable culture and anti-racism work internally and externally and be a passionate advocate for the Partnership’s essential mission.


The National Partnership has retained Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, to assist in this recruitment. All inquiries, nominations, and applications should be directed to the search firm electronically at: Priority consideration granted before August 16, 2021.
