Executive Director Job Announcement

Minnesota Women’s Consortium is seeking an Executive Director to lead implementation of a strategic plan that was completed in 2019 with input from the community.

The Year 2020 will be a time for the Minnesota Women’s Consortium to celebrate 40 years of a powerful and vital legacy in the state. It will also be the 100th Anniversary of the Passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting Women’s Constitutional Right to Vote. The Year 2020 will continue to be a time to remind us to never give up, as we have seen how easily things can go backwards if we do not continue to mobilize in powerful ways to advance equity and justice for all women and girls.

Do you thrive on challenges? Do you believe the best work is done by building allies and strong coalitions to mobilize change? Do you think that some of the best achievements in history happened even though most people said it was impossible?
