Employment at the National Women’s Health Network

For 40 years, the NWHN’s advocacy efforts and the independent health information we provide have made a difference in the lives of millions of women. The NWHN continues to work on our key advocacy strategies to challenge dangerous drugs and medical devices, raise women’s voices for the health care we need, and ensure the sexual and reproductive health rights of all women.

Help us write the NWHN's next chapter, protect women, and save lives.

The NWHN wouldn't be able to accomplish our mission without our incredible staff and interns. This is an exciting year for us and for all our applicants! Our new Executive Director Mayra Jacqueline Ferreira is reimagining the staff structure and internships from the ground up. Our goal is that everyone who helps this organization feels valued and supported by this organization and gets the chance to leverage their unique talents in the service of women's health. Together, we will work to amplify the Network's influence and craft impactful policy and activism campaigns that make real differences in the lives of thousands of women. 

Having an independent voice whose sole constituent is women is important. The Network makes sure that women’s stories, issues, and health concerns are addressed both at a grassroots level and through federal policy. It’s trustworthy, it’s unapologetic, and industry doesn’t silence the Network.
