Overview 

Women’s Link Worldwide (WLW) is an international non-profit organization that uses the power of the law to promote social change that advances the human rights of women and girls, especially those facing multiple inequalities. 

 

To achieve our mission we: 

· Bring a gender perspective and an inter-sectional analysis to human rights law. 

· Go beyond the courtroom and use our work in litigation and other legal processes to strengthen the human rights infrastructure, create public debate and contribute to social movements that can transform society and guarantee women’s and girls’ rights. 

We strive to create social impact by working at the intersection of sexual and reproductive rights, freedom from violence and discrimination. 

Founded in 2001, WLW has grown to an organization with staff and consultants in three continents and an annual budget of about $3 million. We study the terrain, design strategies, write legal briefs, and stand before the judiciary in national, regional and international courts. We represent our clients, we mentor, we train, we promote professional exchanges, and offer practical tools. 

 WLW is supported by institutional and individual donors in the United States, Europe and Latin America. Our development team is led by the Director of Institutional Advancement (based in New York City) and includes this position and a Development Officer based in Madrid who manages institutional fundraising. 

Reporting to the Director of Institutional Advancement, the Development Officer – Individual Giving will manage the organization’s individual donor program in the United States, Latin America, and Europe, with a particular focus on refining and implementing its major donor strategy. We’re seeking a creative and highly organized project manager to help design and implement the organization’s donor journey and help build strong relationships between supporters and the organization.
