The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Women's Congressional Policy Institute in the search for a Senior Director of Development and Communications to design and implement a comprehensive development strategy for foundation, corporate, and individual annual giving and major gifts.

Reporting to the President, the Women’s Congressional Policy Institute (WCPI) is a nonpartisan public policy organization whose mission is to bring together a community of bipartisan women policymakers and trusted partners to advance issues of importance to women, develop the next generation of women leaders, and foster a more effective and representative democracy. WCPI was established in 1995 after the House of Representatives voted to eliminate the staff and funding for all caucus organizations, including the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues. It fills a critical role in the policy and advocacy community. As a nonprofit, it does not lobby or take positions on legislation or policy.

While not formally affiliated with the bipartisan Women’s Caucus, for nearly 30 years WCPI has worked to strengthen and expand the capacity of the Caucus through its briefings and meetings for women Members of Congress and their staff, with the aim to bring them closer together across party lines and to encourage bipartisan policy priorities to advance issues of interest to women and families. These include women’s health, international issues, 21st century workforce development issues, as well as events to strengthen relationships among women. Its congressional briefings are free and open to the public. WCPI also produces Weekly Legislative Update, which is a free publication that provides information about legislative actions affecting women and their families.

More recently, WCPI has been working to build and expand the pipeline of young women leaders through its congressional fellowship program, internship program, and special events. The “Joint Session” program is a bicameral, bipartisan program for women chiefs of staff, committee staff directors, and senior leadership staff that provides opportunities for networking and professional development among senior women leaders on Capitol Hill. These efforts are contributing to improving the functioning of Congress as an institution.

Women's Congressional Policy Institute is committed to core values that, along with its mission, guide its work and shape the culture of the organization. It is committed to bipartisanship. Encouraging policy priorities that span the partisan divide helps it foster solutions important to all women. It is committed to cultivating women’s leadership. While a record number of women currently serve in Congress, there remains a dearth of women in leadership positions in the public policy arena. WCPI seeks to empower women to lead on Capitol Hill and in public policy. It is committed to representative democracy.

A bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of experience and education is required for this position as is at least seven years of fundraising or external relations experience. Capitol Hill experience is a plus. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Women's Congressional Policy Institute as well as the responsibilities and qualifications stated in the prospectus.

The salary range for this position is $110,000 to $130,000 annually.

Preference will be given to applications received by March 2, 2023.
