IWPR is an equal opportunity employer. We consider applicants without regard for race, ethnicity, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected status. IWPR’s work is supported by foundation grants, government grants and contracts, donations from individuals, and contributions from organizations. IWPR is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

IWPR seeks to observe the following operating principles:

  • As an institution IWPR strives to work toward organizational sustainability to ensure maximum benefit for women and families over the long term
  • As a partner, IWPR strives for respectful collaboration, open communication, and on-time delivery of its promised contributions and focuses on forging common purpose on behalf of all women while acknowledging differences among them
  • As a place to work, IWPR strives to build an atmosphere in which staff take pleasure in doing their work, share in the joy of discovery and policy impact, and are valued fairly for their contributions; where initiative, innovation, and risk-taking are encouraged; and where staff members enjoy equal opportunity and are enabled to discuss freely their concerns about their working environment

In 2020, IWPR partnered with Working Ideal to conduct a compensation study to help ensure that our compensation program is in alignment with our values and the market. While many choose to work at mission-driven organizations because of their commitment to social change, we know fair and equitable compensation is key to attracting and retaining top talent. Recent research shows that traditional education and experience-based hiring and compensation models are a barrier to inclusive hiring. This equity issue is rooted in the educational attainment gap that exists by race and ethnicity. We hope that IWPR’s new experienced-based compensation framework is consistent and promotes equity and transparency for existing IWPR employees, applicants and new hires. Click HERE to view the IWPR compensation program
