Executive Director--Women’s Rights Division
Location: Multiple Locations Considered
Application Deadline: November 16, 2020

Organization Overview
Human Rights Watch (HRW) is an international NGO that advances human rights worldwide. HRW is known for in-depth investigations, incisive and timely reporting, innovative and high-profile advocacy campaigns, and success in changing the human rights-related policies and practices of governments, international institutions and other influential entities. Our 500 staff based in more than 50 countries investigate wrongs, expose facts, offer solutions, and build pressure for those with power to respect rights. We collaborate closely with a diverse array of local and global partners and engage the public. HRW defends the freedoms and protections that promote dignity, equality, and justice.

Our mission is urgent. Women’s rights movements are increasingly vocal and connected globally but often face powerful and rising resistance to gender equality and justice. Governments are failing to meet their obligations on health, gender-based violence, climate change, a living wage, food, water, housing and education. We must respond to the gendered impacts of conflict, crisis and displacement, rising economic inequality coupled with the absence of safety nets, and entrenched legal and social discrimination against women and girls. The Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, and technological advances present extraordinary risks and challenges for women’s rights and gender justice as well as some new opportunities.

Credibility, diversity, and partnerships are critical to our ability to meet these challenges and deliver impact. HRW’s guiding principles include independence; ethical, accurate and fair fact-finding; a strong focus on impact; and strong and respectful partnerships. Our core internal values include transparency; diversity, equity and inclusion; learning and trust; safety and resilience; and accountability.

The Women’s Rights Division (WRD), founded in 1990, leads HRW’s work on women’s rights. WRD works to end the human rights violations contributing most to the inequity women and girls continue to face in every country in the world. Our approach is deeply intersectional: we explicitly and intentionally look at how intersecting inequalities—based on gender, race, ethnicity, caste, nationality, Indigenous status, migration status, sexual orientation and gender identity, ability, age, and other factors—contribute to marginalization and human rights violations. We stand in solidarity with other feminist and social justice groups around the world often working in partnership with them to realize key common goals including: reproductive, economic and climate justice; economic, social and cultural rights; racial justice and reparations; LGBT rights; and workers’ rights.

WRD’s work is guided by three pillars: the right to live free from violence; economic rights; and the right to health, with a strong focus on reproductive justice. At present, WRD has integrated work on the gendered impact of the Covid-19 pandemic across these pillars. Our other main bodies of work include: investigating threats to reproductive and sexual health and rights; tackling emerging threats to women’s rights related to climate change and technology; combating pushback on gender equality; seizing unique opportunities for systemic change toward ending male guardianship laws in the Middle East and North Africa region and toward securing ratification of the 2019 ILO Violence and Harassment convention.

WRD is a diverse team of 12 deeply experienced staff members of seven nationalities with backgrounds including academia, law, and journalism. They document abuses in Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Central Asia, Middle East and North Africa, and North America. Staff members are based in nine locations in seven countries, in time zones spanning 11 hours. Most work in settings where they are the sole WRD staff member, several work from home, and some live and work in contexts with significant security and communication challenges.

Position Overview and Responsibilities

Human Rights Watch is seeking an outstanding women’s rights leader to direct its Women’s Rights Division, one of its eight thematic research programs. The WRD Director reports to the Program Office and leads a WRD management team. The position will preferably be based in a major HRW office, but other locations will be considered.

The position involves three main areas of responsibility: 1) lead HRW’s work on women’s rights; 2) manage a thriving team within the Women’s Rights Division; and 3) play a key role in raising funds to support WRD’s work.

1) Lead HRW’s work on women’s rights

The WRD director is responsible for leading and motivating WRD’s staff to conduct strategic, ethical, and impactful research, produce high-quality reports, innovative and targeted communications, and advocacy with governments, policy-makers and the public, to advance the rights of women and girls around the world by generating pressure on governments, non-state actors such as business, and international institutions to curb rights violations. The WRD director will provide vision, leadership, and support to foster an inclusive, equitable, productive, resilient, and team-oriented culture within the division and across the organization.

a) Provide the leadership and strategic vision for the Women’s Rights Division.

c) In collaboration with relevant internal and external partners, oversee and develop research, advocacy, and communications plans on priority women’s human rights issues globally. Ensure that plans include clear goals, strategies, and benchmarks, that research is conducted safely, rigorously, and ethically, and that WRD routinely engages in monitoring and evaluation and learning, and that WRD work aligns with the broader strategic plan of the organization.
d) Provide direction and oversight to the production of reports and other research and advocacy materials—written and multimedia--and ensure these materials generate domestic and international pressure to curb human rights violations. Ensure that all materials adhere to the organization’s and human rights standards and are appropriately vetted, including reviewing and editing written materials from within the division and those written by other parts of the organization.
e) Generate public awareness and build pressure to support respect for women’s rights, particularly recommendations emanating from HRW research through engaging with national and international media, and conducting advocacy with high-level officials from governments, the UN, donors, and other relevant international and regional organizations.
f) Support an intersectional gender lens in the design and implementation of all work across HRW, including research methodologies, advocacy initiatives, media work, and partnerships.

2) Manage a thriving team within the Women’s Rights Division

The director is responsible for day to day management and supervision of WRD’s staff, including: overseeing the work of multiple direct reports; setting priorities; representing the division’s work internally and externally; ensuring security of staff, partners, and information; managing risk; mentoring and supporting staff and ensuring alignment with HRW values.

The director must demonstrate ability and commitment to: foster the safety and resilience of staff; promote diversity, equity and inclusion; build consensus with staff around confronting key challenges and research and advocacy approaches; lead the team in producing strategic research and advocacy that is timely and impactful; and ensure the highest research standards in a culture of learning, trust, teamwork, and collaboration.

a) In collaboration with Program Office and Operations Department, lead overall management of WRD staff and operations, across multiple countries and time zones.
b) Lead, motivate, manage, and mentor team members. Communicate clear expectations, set performance objectives, provide regular and timely constructive feedback, ensure balanced workload, build a strong sense of team, and provide guidance and opportunities for professional growth.
c) Promote an inclusive and positive work environment including by soliciting diverse points of views, prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion and stress and resilience efforts, and proactively addressing bias, discrimination, and microaggressions.
d) Monitor well-being of WRD staff as it pertains to stress and resilience and self-care and work collaboratively with WRD staff in addressing the challenges and opportunities they face in their work and the environments where they live.
e) Ensure the safety and resilience of staff, information security, and security of interlocutors and partners in their work with HRW. Build a culture valuing and enabling security, trust, and transparency, and ensure that staff receive appropriate training in security policies and procedures, and that these policies and procedures are implemented effectively.
f) Represent the women’s rights division within the program department and to senior management. Work collaboratively with all departments and divisions to ensure operational effectiveness, efficiency, and impact.

3) Play a key role in raising funds to support WRD’s work

The WRD director has primary responsibility for raising the funds needed to support the work of the division. In this role, the WRD director will have support from HRW’s development team.

a) Collaborate with the Development Department on fundraising, playing a lead role in raising the funds needed for WRD’s work. Provide information, proposals and draft reports to donors in a timely manner, build relationships with individual and institutional donors, promote the work of HRW as a whole, and solicit and follow up with potential and existing donors to achieve WRD fundraising goals.
b) Manage budget setting, expenditure, and spending priorities, in co-operation with the Finance Department, and monitor the WRD budget and ensure that resources are allocated to maximize impact.

Perform other responsibilities as required.

Candidate Profile

Education and Experience: A graduate degree or equivalent work experience in women’s rights, law, journalism, social sciences, international affairs, or a related field is required. A minimum of ten years of relevant work experience is required, with at least five years in a management role.

Able to travel widely, including internationally, an estimated 30 percent of the time (once Covid-19 related restrictions and precautions permit). If not based in New York, consistent additional travel to New York will be required.

Fluency in English is required; fluency in other languages is highly valued.

We understand that this moment, during the Covid-19 pandemic, as the school year begins in many parts of the world, is a uniquely difficult time to recruit a new senior staff member. People with caregiving responsibilities are under particular strain and it may be difficult for many people who would be excellent candidates for this job to go through a recruitment process and begin a new position at this time.

We aim to have a successful search despite these challenges, by being flexible and supportive in how the new director comes onboard. We are open to discussing gradual on-boarding, flexibility regarding the director’s location, and other options. Human Rights Watch has made it a priority during the pandemic to support our team, especially those with caregiving responsibilities.

Об организации

Международная неправительственная организация Human Rights Watch (HRW) продвигает права человека во всем мире. Она известна своими тщательными расследованиями, острыми и своевременными публикациями, инновационными и заметными лоббистскими усилиями, а также умением добиваться изменений в политике и практике государств, международных институтов и других влиятельных субъектов в том, что касается прав человека. 500 наших сотрудников работают более чем в 50 странах и расследуют нарушения, предают гласности факты, предлагают решения и оказывают давление на власть имущих, чтобы те соблюдали права. Мы тесно сотрудничаем с самыми разными местными и международными партнерами и взаимодействуем с широкой общественностью. HRW защищает свободы и гарантии, которые обеспечивают достойное обращение, равноправие и справедливость.

Основанное в 1990 году, подразделение по правам женщин (Women’s Rights Division, WRD) ведет деятельность HRW, касающуюся прав женщин. Это подразделение работает над тем, чтобы положить конец тем нарушениям прав человека, которые вносят наибольший вклад в непрекращающееся неравноправие женщин и девочек во всех странах мира. Мы применяем глубоко интерсекционный подход: мы специально, целенаправленно изучаем, как различные, пересекающиеся между собой формы неравенства (по признаку гендера, расы, этнической или кастовой принадлежности, гражданства, принадлежности к коренным народам, миграционного статуса, сексуальной ориентации и гендерной идентичности, наличия или отсутствия инвалидности, возраста и прочих факторов) вносят вклад в маргинализацию и нарушения прав человека. Мы проявляем солидарность с другими феминистскими организациями и объединениями в защиту социальной справедливости по всему миру, зачастую образуя с ними партнерства для реализации наших общих целей: репродуктивной, экономической и климатической справедливости; соблюдения экономических, социальных и культурных прав; расовой справедливости и возмещения вреда; соблюдения прав ЛГБТ и трудовых прав.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
