Since 1973, Women Employed (WE) has been creating fundamental, systemic change for working women. WE are an advocacy organization. WE work to change systems, because when you improve a law, work with a company to create supportive policies, or help a college develop programs to keep working students in school, you can improve the circumstances of hundreds—maybe millions—of women all at once.


WE pursue equity for all. WE value the unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives, skills, knowledge, and workstyles that a diverse workforce brings to our organization. WE are committed to building a diverse and inclusive staff, and we encourage women, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and individuals with different abilities to apply.


The Marketing Coordinator helps build WE’s brand and reputation, as well as supporters’ connections with the organization, by collaborating on all facets of the organization’s marketing and communications strategies.
