Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA) seeks a North America/Pacific Program Director to lead the design and operations of our North America/Pacific programs, with a particular focus on our U.S. Grassroots Accelerator.
WEA’s U.S. Grassroots Accelerator catalyzes the critical projects of women leaders driving change in their communities. The Accelerator draws diverse leaders from around the country who work at the intersection of gender, race and environmental justice. Through this training, leaders deepen their strategies for change, scale their movements and build powerful alliances. This is a dynamic role that involves regular communication with women environmental leaders, program organization and management, and collaboration with WEA team members.
Founded in 2006, Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA) is a global organization that trains, resources and catalyzes grassroots women’s networks to protect our environment and build healthy, safe, and just communities now and into the future. WEA designs capacity-building trainings where women leaders benefit from access to technology, economic development, financing, mentorship and a global alliance. In some of the most environmentally threatened places in the world, WEA leaders are defending forests and rivers, saving threatened indigenous seeds, launching sustainable farms, conserving coral reefs, and protecting land rights. WEA’s signature approach has enabled over 10,000 women with technical, entrepreneurial and leadership skills; and in turn, they are reaching over 10 million people in 24 countries with safe water, energy access, regenerative farming, and climate initiatives.
