The Position

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) seeks a Creative and Digital Strategies Manager to help implement and support our digital advocacy and campaign work. The Manager’s primary duties will be to help manage and create content for NWLC’s social channels and work collaboratively across the communications team, especially with the campaigns team.

The Organization

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) fights for gender justice — in the courts, in public policy, and in our society — working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls.

We use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and to break down the barriers that harm all of us — especially women of color, LGBTQIA+ people, and low-income women and families.

For 50 years, we have been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women, and we need you with us to continue this fight. Find out more at NWLC.org.
