White Ribbon Alliance is a globally connected, locally led advocacy organization working to create a world where all girls and women realize their right to quality health and well-being.

Position Summary:
On April 11, 2018, White Ribbon Alliance launched the campaign What Women Want: Demands for Quality Maternal and Reproductive Healthcare from Women and Girls. Collaborating with more than 300 partners and mobilizing in 114 countries, in one year, the campaign asked nearly 1.2 million women and girls what their number one request was for their reproductive and maternal healthcare. The global results were recently launched at the Women Deliver conference in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequent country launches will occur throughout 2019 and early 2020.

The consultant should have seven to ten years of campaign or advocacy experience, ideally in international settings.
