Jobs - Women's Foundation California
Who We Are


We value a diverse and inclusive workplace and strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, trans people, gender non-conforming individuals and formerly incarcerated people to apply.

As an equal opportunity employer, we recruit and hire with the understanding of systemic oppression and the lived reality of people with marginalized identities. We also recruit and hire without regard to race, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, prior conviction, arrest history, disability, marital status, veteran status, or age.

The Women’s Foundation California (WFC) is operating with an entirely remote workforce and all positions are remote/virtual.

Incumbent must work and reside within California.

Our Misson

We work to invest in, train, and connect community leaders to advance gender, racial, and economic justice. We do this by providing grants to community-led organizations, training community leaders through the Solís Policy Institute, and fostering a community of advocates, donors, policymakers, grantmakers, academics and many others through convenings to share knowledge and strengthen the social justice movement in California.

Working ReImagined

In terms of our team, we knew we were no longer conducting “business as usual” so we began asking ourselves, what does conducting business as unusual look like?

We put in place a number of changes in the first couple of weeks to promote wellness for our team:

  1. We went to a 4-day work week

Read how we adapted organizational policies, practices, and programs in the time of COVID.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our community is made up of cisgender and transgender women, genderqueer, gender-variant and non-binary individuals, and trans men. Our Women’s Foundation California grant partners, staff, board, and SPI alum and fellows reflect a broad range of gender expressions.

We know that words are powerful and imperfect, especially when it comes to gender identity. Words that feel like home to one person, feel triggering or dismissive to someone else. We want the words we use to be as inclusive as possible, if you have feedback on the language we use we want to hear it.

Our Benefits

We’ have an amazing team powering our work. In order to support and honor the work of all our colleagues, we offer a wide range of benefits to support the people who make possible all that we do. We want everyone to feel supported as a whole so they can: take care of themselves and their loved ones, live a life of service and grow their career.
