Program Director, Gender Wealth Institute

Posted by Women's Way on May 25, 2021

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.

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.


You will lead the Gender Wealth Institute, which includes a variety of working groups as well as short- and long-term projects all revolving around the issue of women’s economic security in the region.
