Job opening: Head of Gender Equality and Inclusion

CARE’s vision is to seek a world of hope, inclusion, and social justice; where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. CARE puts gender equality, diversity, and inclusion at the center of all we do because we know that we cannot overcome poverty and social injustice until all people have equal rights and opportunities. 

Gender equality is at the heart of CARE’s Vision 2030 and radiates through all our work at the level of individuals, teams, the organization, our programs and our partnerships. We recognize the critical link between our internal performance and accountability to gender equality and inclusion at all levels of the organization. We also recognize the power dynamics globally between international organizations and other actors seeking an end to social injustice and poverty. In line with CARE’s Vision 2030, we seek to address these power imbalances and work with feminist principles.  

The Head of Gender Equality and Inclusion will support the organization to ensure that a culture of learning and adaption are integrated, that voices are heard from across the organization and external actors so that there is diverse representation and a climate of trust and inclusion to which we hold ourselves accountable. 

This role will support and inspire CARE’s leadership to achieve its goal that ‘50 million people of all genders experience greater gender equality (particularly eliminating GBV, and increasing women and girls’ voice, leadership, and education)’. Working closely with Gender Focal Points within the confederation membership, gender teams and with the global CARE International Gender network, this role works collaboratively to leverage the immense reach and depth of the organization’s gender transformative work across our development and humanitarian programming.

Interested and qualified candidates should submit their CVs and a brief covering letter of interest in English to [email protected] by January 20, 2023.

CARE puts gender equality and social justice at the front of our work. We seek to ensure that who we are as an organization reflects our vision of a world where ALL people can live in dignity and security. Our diversity is our strength. We encourage people from all backgrounds, nationalities, abilities, beliefs, genders, and experiences to apply.
