In this series, we like to explore different aspects of the social-impact sector. Today, we’re highlighting organizations and opportunities on our site that focus on women’s health.
Planned Parenthood of New York City provides health services for over 50,000 New Yorkers every year, including gynecological care, contraception, pregnancy testing, abortion, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and HIV testing and counseling. They’ve also been leaders in reproductive health education and advocacy, supporting legislation and policies that ensure universal access to reproductive health care. They’re currently hiring for nine positions from human resources to case management to assisting in direct care.
If your interests lie in policy and politics, check out the Women’s Campaign Fund. They support women running for all levels of political office to advance “political participation and leadership of women who support reproductive health choices for all.” WCF is currently seeking a Vice President of Development in Washington, DC. You’ll set goals, organize events, cultivate foundation and corporate support, and manage the development staff.
