Grants + Data Associate (CGRE)

CGRE brings funders together to multiply their impact in protecting and advancing gender and reproductive equity in the United States.

With a $100 million impact strategy, the Collaborative for Gender + Reproductive Equity (CGRE) has the potential to reshape the landscape of gender and reproductive equity and set the conditions for national progress. Women across a full range of identities and experiences are at the forefront of major events shaping this country, yet their rights and priorities are largely ignored or attacked. We know that women, especially low-income women, women of color, trans and gender non-conforming people, face pervasive systemic barriers that limit their advancement. In this critical time, we see immense opportunity to work proactively, creatively, and collaboratively to support women’s leadership in turning the tide.

Recognizing that gender and reproductive equity are inextricably linked, we work to ensure that all women have the knowledge and resources they need to shape their own lives. With a focus on women of color and women in low-income communities, we work both proactively and reactively – taking risks, testing new approaches, and embracing innovation as we respond to current crises and support forward-looking strategies.

The Opportunity

The Grants + Data Associate will have built systems from the ground up; be excited to do so again; and be eager to work alongside a highly-engaged, collaborative team. The Associate will excel at both the art and science of data management, from its most detailed entry demands to its most revelatory visualization and storytelling possibilities. The Associate will be profoundly committed to gender and reproductive equity.

This new role will support CGRE’s grantmaking process: creating and maintaining information management and communication systems, and supporting learning activities, including those with current and potential funders. The Associate will report to a senior member of the Program Team and provide support to other team members, as needed.

CGRE is a small, fully-virtual organization, fiscally-sponsored by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA). Learn more at
