Women Employed

About Women Employed

Since 1973, Women Employed (WE) has been creating fundamental, systemic change for working women. WE are an advocacy organization. WE work to change systems, because when you improve a law, work with a company to create supportive policies, or help a college develop programs to keep working students in school, you can improve the circumstances of hundreds—maybe millions—of women all at once.

WE pursue equity for all. WE value the unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives, skills, knowledge, and workstyles that a diverse workforce brings to our organization. WE are committed to building a diverse and inclusive staff, and we encourage women, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and individuals with different abilities to apply.


Summer Leader

June 2019 - August 2019 Chicago, IL
“The Summer Leadership Program was such an amazing opportunity to learn more about a potential career at a nonprofit organization. I enjoyed that the internship was open to creativity and provided many different projects to work on. Each project focused on very different aspects of nonprofit work like policy, social media, fundraising, and even professional development for the interns. The amount of work for the length of the program can seem a bit overwhelming, but the staff always had an open-door policy in case any intern needed assistance. Overall, it was an amazing opportunity. ”
