Women’s Earth Alliance is thrilled to share that we are seeking a North America/Pacific Program Director to join our global team. This is a dynamic role that involves working with directly with women environmental and climate leaders, and oversight of the U.S. Accelerator Program.
The Accelerator catalyzes the critical projects of women leaders driving change in their communities. The program draws diverse leaders from around the country who work at the intersection of gender, racial, economic and environmental justice. Through this training, leaders deepen their strategies for change, scale their movements and build powerful alliances.
"This new team member is a powerhouse of a leader who can do a bit of everything," says WEA Co-Director Kahea Pacheco (Kanaka 'Ōiwi). "They can organize and oversee the operations of our programs, update or design new curriculum when needed, advocate for our frontline communities, and hold these special relationships with WEA leaders with care and love. This is heart-centered work, and we're looking forward to this new leader bringing their whole selves to it."
We are excited to welcome candidates with significant demonstrated experience designing and managing culturally/racially diverse programs with a focus on environment and/or women, coordinating holistic training programs, and stewarding networks, alliances, and coalitions. This leader will bring with them a deep understanding of environmental issues in North America and/or the Pacific—particularly as they affect women and BIPOC communities—and a passion for supporting women's leadership and movement building for our communities and the earth.
Furthermore, we believe that many environmental movements have perpetuated the marginalization of the global majority —including people of color, Indigenous peoples, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in the environmental movement. Therefore, as a program based on stolen Indigenous lands, we strongly encourage applications from Indigenous people, and those from other systemically marginalized communities.
