No Means No Worldwide (NMNW) is an internationally acclaimed training academy for sexual violence prevention and recovery. Our goal is to end sexual violence against women and children around the world. We train local young women and men from high risk communities to deliver IMpower and IMsafer, our dual-gender sexual violence intervention systems that teach girls to set boundaries, stand up and defend themselves and boys to challenge rape culture, ask for consent and intervene in attack. 

Stanford University researchers have found that IMpower drops rape rates by 47%, which has led to endorsements from the World Health Organization, the CDC, UNICEF, and the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children. NMNW is in a period of significant growth, excited to be taking steps to scale the program on a global level. 

We recognize that our people are our strength and the diverse talents they bring to our global workforce are directly linked to our success. We are an equal opportunity employer and place a high value on diversity and inclusion at our company.
