Jewish Women International (JWI), one of the original American Jewish organizations, is the leading Jewish organization working to empower women and girls – of every race, culture, gender identity, and sexual orientation – by ensuring and protecting their safety, building access to long-term economic security, and lifting and mentoring women leaders.
THE OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPACT
JWI addresses the cycle of violence against women and girls through three pillars of work: gender-based violence, economic security, and women’s leadership. When women can live in safe homes and healthy relationships; when we have control over our finances; and when we have women leaders supporting each other and building workplaces that are safe and equitable, we will live in a world where women may thrive.
Now in our 125th year, JWI is uniquely poised for growth. Responding to our 2021 research report assessing the unmet needs of Jewish survivors and the domestic violence programs serving the Jewish community, JWI launched the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence in the Jewish Community and the Collaborative of Jewish Domestic Violence Programs and the Women’s Financial Empowerment Institute. Our leadership programs engage young professional women in D.C., New York, Chicago, Denver, L.A., San Francisco, San Diego, and Tel Aviv. We are now launching similar networks for women over 35.
We are seeking a dynamic financial educator to lead JWI’s Women’s Financial Empowerment Institute (WFEI). This is an exciting opportunity to build creative and engaging programming that empowers all women with financial literacy. Programming includes financial literacy workshops for female-identifying teens, college students, young professionals, and women approaching retirement. Ongoing workshops on financial literacy, job readiness, and entrepreneurship for survivors of domestic violence and financial abuse are integral to the WFEI. The financial educator will consult with a social worker to ensure programming and resources for survivors is trauma-informed and survivor-centered. This position reports to JWI’s Chief Program Officer.
Responsibilities will include:
- Reviewing and updating current financial literacy programs, and developing new curricula for all target audiences;
- Developing content and facilitating ongoing financial literacy workshops and bootcamps for JWI’s Women’s Impact Network (WIN) and Young Women’s Impact Networks (YWIN);
- Providing financial empowerment workshops and resources for a cohort of domestic violence survivors who are participating in JWI’s job readiness program, and managing the cohort’s experience (in coordination with the social worker, to be hired). This cohort will meet virtually;
- Managing the financial education for domestic violence survivors’ workshops;
- Where needed, manage and hire consultants for financial literacy workshops;
- Ensuring adhesion to grant requirements and writing grant reports for all financial education projects funded through grants; and
- Working with JWI’s communications staff to build ongoing collateral to engage and educate audiences, including Financial Literacy Awareness Month (April), Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (February), and Women’s History Month (March).
JWI recognizes that far too often women, trans, and non-binary people, as well as other structurally marginalized groups apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. If the work and possibilities described above excite you, we encourage you to apply.
The successful candidate:
- Has professional experience working in and/or teaching personal finance;
- Is an engaging workshop facilitator;
- Has experience writing curricula and designing programs;
- Is a creative professional who is excited by the opportunity to build something new;
- Understands the connection between financial literacy and long-term safety and security for women.
Salary is $81,000 - 99,000/year commensurate with experience.
JWI offers a competitive benefits package, and a fast paced, purpose-driven, and collaborative and supportive work environment.
