Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, Education, Women, Womens Rights, Womens Studies

Mission: Women's voices are too often excluded from public discourse. Gains for women and girls, made over decades of struggle, are being systematically rolled back. From human and civil rights to economic security, from reproductive rights to equal opportunity, from violence against women to leadership in science, academia, and business, we still have much to do.

Programs: Identity: addressing discrimination based on gender (including intersections with race/ethnicity, class, ability, nationality, age, sexual orientation, religion, gender identity, immigration status, etc).

thriving environments: from personal safety (e. G. , sexual assault) to community (e. G. , civic leadership) to global (e. G. , climate change) concerns.

economic well-being: issues of economic justice, work fairness, and business leadership.

I have been involved with NCRW for many years as a participant in their programs, partner, volunteer and advisor and have been continually impressed by the quality of their work and the high standards of their team. I am particularly inspired by their new President and the energy and expertise she is bringing to the leadership of the organization. My deepest involvement has been with their leadership development program for emerging women leaders in the nonprofit sector. I have been tremendously impressed by the caliber and diversity of the young women they have attracted to this program, and I believe that the curriculum of the program is thoughtfully designed and highly effective in supporting these women in advancing their leadership.

I volunteered my coaching and leadership development expertise to support NCRW's women's leadership fellowship program, so what I know about the organization comes from that experience and perspective. The staff are a joy to work with, providing clear and timely information about expectations and goals, while still being incredibly open and collaborative. The leadership fellows as a class were extraordinarily committed and cool. There are not enough programs offering leadership development for women in the middle stages of their careers, and this one is well executed and sorely needed. Aine is a new leader for the organization, and so far I've been very impressed with her presence and guidance. Overall, can't say enough good things about the staff and their good work in the world.
