Women Creating Change is 501(c)(3) organization that partners with underserved women to develop and strengthen the skills and resources needed to effectively advocate for New York’s diverse communities. WCC was founded in 1915 in anticipation of the ratification of the 19th Amendment as a space for women to consider political and societal issues and create change. Early accomplishments include the successful lobbying of Columbia University to admit women to their law school, the opening of the nation’s first Maternity Center in 1917, and mobilizing the public to allow women to serve on juries.
In 2018, WCC underwent a comprehensive strategic planning process rooted in extensive community engagement. In early 2019, WCC unveiled a new vision, mission, name, and programmatic focus. Driven by the vision that all women have the power to be changemakers to create a more equitable New York City, WCC engages in meaningful programmatic and policy work to expand opportunities for women to participate in civic processes.
Civic Matters: WCC is launching a multi-tiered program called Civic Matters that partners with organizations and women to: learn about civic engagement and why it matters; use action-oriented tools and resources; practice using advocacy skills; and engage directly in advocacy. The program has four components starting with a workshop series that aims to disrupt patterns that have kept many women on the sidelines by creating friendly, accessible, and inclusive opportunities for civic engagement learning. The first workshop will focus on voting rights, and other topics may include building social movements, navigating local government, and using technology to create change.
Position Overview: The Workshop Facilitator will be the primary external face of WCC’s Civic Matters Workshop Series. The Facilitator will work with WCC’s Program and Policy Manager to help develop and finalize curriculum content and approach, and lead the workshops for groups of New York City women. The workshops will start online, but likely transition to in-person when it is safe.
WCCNY is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
