WomenStrong International finds, funds, strengthens, and shares women-driven solutions that will transform lives in urban communities. Our partner organizations start by listening to women, who know best what they need in order to thrive. We bring them together into a Learning Lab, to develop, test, sharpen, and disseminate solutions to some of the challenges faced by the women and girls in their communities. Through our collective learning and sharing, WomenStrong is building a global community of organizations better equipped to advance the rights and wellbeing of women and girls.
The Learning Lab is focused on ensuring opportunities for our partners to strengthen their capacity and connect with each other, so that they might share, learn, and disseminate findings that can advance the evidence base for what works to improve the lives of girls and women in the areas of girls’ education and empowerment, women’s health, violence against women and girls, and economic security and opportunity (pending). Our goals are to build a community that generates collective learning within a shared agenda that will advance gender justice; foster a growing movement of women-led organizations that will support, collaborate, and amplify their local solutions for transformational change in our areas of focus; deepen understanding of how to address gender inequalities, empower women and girls, and expand global evidence and action to further equitable, sustainable human development. Targeted activities within each Lab area are designed to nurture connections among our partners, provide them with knowledge and tools, and encourage peer-to-peer exchange -- with the goal of strengthening their organizational capacity and developing a collective learning agenda.
WomenStrong is a learning organization, built on respect and compassion that recognizes our common humanity and essential dignity. Our work is rooted in listening deeply to women and girls, responding to what they say they need, and learning from what works. We have faith in the force of collaboration at all levels, and seek to take a non-proprietary, multidimensional, and holistic approach to our work. WomenStrong is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to hiring and supporting a diverse workforce. We are committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment and look for future team members who share that same value. WomenStrong staff value and appreciate each others’ experience and knowledge; trust their colleagues to do their jobs; strive to be open, direct, and timely, as we communicate with one another; and assume the best of each other. WomenStrong expects staff to listen, to be intentional, and to appreciate different backgrounds, contexts, and approaches.
