Director, Corporate and Organizational Partnerships


The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, has fought for over 100 years to improve American systems of government and impact public policies through education, advocacy, and litigation. The enduring vitality and resonance of the League as a trusted force for change and good government comes from its unique decentralized structure: a national organization with strong partnerships at the grassroots level with more than 760 state and local Leagues across the country, including the District of Columbia.

At the national level, League activities are coordinated and staffed by two distinct but complementary organizations: The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) and the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF).

This individual will work closely with the League's executive leadership team to build strategic partnerships with businesses that share the organization's goals.

The Director of Corporate and Organizational Partnerships also serves as a key point person representing the League in partnerships, developing high-impact relationships with major associations, corporate and other allies, and developing mutually beneficial partner programs to increase the League’s impact, visibility, and connections at the national, state and local levels.
