Partnerships Officer, Pathway 3 (short-term personnel)

01 December, 2021

Thank you for your interest in joining Investing in Women (IW).

Since April 2016, we have been trialing innovative ways to tackle one of the most critical economic and social issues of our time: gender inequality. An initiative of the Australian government, we partner with businesses in the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar and Indonesia to influence workplace equality; with impact investors to expand women’s access to capital; and with a wide range of partners to change harmful social norms and gender stereotypes.

Our mission—to catalyse inclusive economic growth through increasing women’s economic opportunities in South East Asia—is at the heart of everything we do.

If you are interested in joining our small, dynamic team and applying your skills, experience and passion to this mission, we want to hear from you.
