Online Learning and Capacity-Building Fellowship

Date limite:

Lieu: Washington, USA

Organisation: Women Thrive Alliance


Women Thrive Alliance works to strengthen the institutional capacity and impact of grassroots gender equality and women’s rights organizations. We equip them with the skills, knowledge, and resources needed to build support and advocate effectively for the full implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5), to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030.

Our Raise Your Voice capacity building program provides a global learning community in which Alliance members access tailored tools, coaching, and training on fundraising, communications, and advocacy to help them meet their most pressing needs and build successful advocacy campaigns for SDG5. Through our in-person and online courses, members connect with each other, share their knowledge, learn new skills, and apply their learning to advocacy activities and interactions with decision-makers.

The Online Learning and Capacity-Building Fellow will support the implementation of the Raise Your Voice program and report to the Director.

This fellowship is unpaid and located in Washington, DC. 30-40 hours per week is expected.
