Program Director, Gender Wealth Institute: WOMEN’S WAY

WOMEN’S WAY is looking for a proactive, independently-motivated jack-of-all-trades to lead and execute the Gender Wealth Institute (formerly called the Women’s Economic Security Initiative). This role would be perfect for a people-person who knows how to build and maintain relationships, coordinate and execute on multiple projects at once, and has the ability to handle whatever is thrown at them.


WOMEN’S WAY is the Greater Philadelphia region’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of women, girls, and gender equity. At WOMEN’S WAY, we work every day to remove barriers that hold women back, so that all women thrive. Since its founding 44 years ago, WOMEN’S WAY has seeded, supported, and led an array of efforts to advance opportunities for women and girls, and gender equity for all. The four main pillars we focus on are 1) Economic Security; 2) Safety; 3) Reproductive Rights; and 4) Leadership Development.

We support these issues by 1) coordinating and aligning efforts among stakeholders, 2) empowering individual and collective voices to build new knowledge and advocate for change, and 3) investing in organizations through grantmaking, training, and resource sharing.

We are a small but mighty team strongly committed to continuous learning, innovation, and growth.

Gender Wealth Institute (formerly Women’s Economic Security Initiative)

WOMEN’S WAY launched the Women’s Economic Security Initiative (WESI) in October 2017, a long-term, systems-level collaborative initiative centered around the shared vision that all women in the Philadelphia region attain financial well-being for themselves and their families. WESI brings together 80+ partners representing government, nonprofits, philanthropy, business, and women with the lived experience of economic insecurity around a common agenda and aligned activities. As the backbone, WOMEN’S WAY recruits partners, guides vision and strategy, supports aligned activities, builds public will, and mobilizes funding.

In the face of society’s current economic challenges, WOMEN’S WAY is building on the learnings, momentum, and early successes of WESI to launch the next evolution of WESI: the Gender Wealth Institute (GWI). GWI’s mission is to close the gender wealth gap in the Greater Philadelphia region by advancing research and practical solutions that build wealth for women who are economically insecure.

International Youth Program Manager: Citizen Diplomacy International of Philadelphia

Citizen Diplomacy International is looking for a passionate, globally-minded and detail-oriented person to join our team and help us in our mission to connect Philadelphia to the world.

About Us

Citizen Diplomacy International is the Philadelphia region’s international relations organization connecting Philadelphians to the world, providing international education, and promoting the best of Philadelphia.

We work in partnership with Philadelphia’s Sister Cities and U. S. Department of State’s leadership exchange programs to engage the people of our region in world affairs, to strengthen the reputation of the United States around the world, and to promote learning across cultures. Through virtual and in-person programs, we engage individuals in U.S. foreign relations by creating “face to face” opportunities for Americans and international visitors to exchange knowledge and culture, discuss the biggest global challenges, and form their own views of U.S. and foreign policy.

Our network of ‘Citizen Diplomats’ are both experts in their fields, from innovation, entrepreneurship, government, education, sustainability and journalism, and gracious Americans who share their values and “American cultural experiences” through informal conversations or dinners with families in homes and businesses executives. For 28 years, our Sister Cities High School Exchange program has worked with 16 Philadelphia high schools in five Sister Cities. These connections continue to be powerful tools to reinforce American security and build a more civil, peaceful and prosperous world.

Overview of the Position

As the Youth Program Manager, you should be enthusiastic, creative and detail-oriented, and enjoy working as part of a small, mission-driven team. Our Youth Program identifies, cultivates, and amplifies the talent of Philadelphia while building a worldwide network of Young Citizen Diplomats. Our Youth Programs serve high school and college-aged young people, engaging them in discussions of the most complex and challenging social, political, and scientific issues in our world today.

Following a successful pilot last summer, this role will involve launching and scaling a new model of virtual international exchange for 400-500 young people in the Greater Philadelphia with the goal of connecting them with 400-500 peers in Sister City Frankfurt, Germany; Sister City Tel Aviv Israel; Egypt; and the United Arab Emirates. Exchange topics focus on STEM entrepreneurship and Social Innovation,  as well as intercultural communication. Young people participate in 4-week long virtual exchanges to build practical skills and global competencies through synchronous and asynchronous activities. Additional classroom-to-classroom programs may also be coordinated outside of the Academy.

The program goals are to engage diverse youth to: (1) expand their understanding of American and different world cultures and global networking;  (2) learn and practice respectful dialogue; identify and respond to bias and stereotypes; (3) hone critical thinking skills and collaborate cross-culturally; (4) prepare for global workforce success; and (5) learn several different pathways successful STEM entrepreneurs have used to bring innovation to the public or Social innovators who have addressed compelling social issues facing their communities or UN SDGs.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities

The Youth Program Manager plays a critical role in marketing this new program, recruiting students, and, of course, running the virtual exchanges. Ongoing grant reporting and communications support is also required. As the Youth Program Manager, you will work closely with our team members and a wide variety of partners:  the students and their parents; the teachers and principals in the schools; our community partners; and local and international governments. You will also oversee the day-to-day program-contracted facilitators, recruiters and interns.

Marketing and Recruitment

  • Research to identify partners in Philadelphia and internationally for student recruitment
  • Collaboratively develop marketing campaigns to generate enrollment
