Everyday Feminism is seeking a full-time Outreach and Communications Manager who will oversee and implement engagement strategies with our different stakeholders, including fans, partners, donors, and sponsors. This job is great for people who want to build an inclusive, engaged online base of socially conscious people and activists for an independent feminist media site.
The Outreach and Communications Manager is supervised by the Executive Director. Since we are a virtual organization, the Outreach and Communications Manager works from home and attends meetings via telephone and videoconferencing.
This full-time exempt staff position is compensated with a $47,000-52,000 annual salary, commensurate with experience, and a competitive benefits package. As we become more financially sustainable, we are committed to raising this and other salaries at Everyday Feminism.
About Everyday Feminism
Founded in 2012, Everyday Feminism has quickly grown from a small bootstrapped start-up into one of the most popular feminist online independent media sites in the world. Bringing a unique inside-out approach to apply intersectional feminism to our daily lives, we reach millions of readers from over 140 countries per month.
And now with the Trump administration being in full swing, we’ve realized that Everyday Feminism needs to become more strategic in what and how we cover different social justice issues in order to better support everyday people in becoming more socially conscious and resisting Trumplandia.
We are experimenting with new ways for independent media and activism to work together and with new ways to financially sustain this innovative work. As the world is calling on us to take on this new challenge, we’re excited to grow our dream team. So please apply soon if you’d like to join us!
