Tahirih Justice Center, a non-profit legal services organization, seeks an experienced leader to be the Executive Director for the Greater Washington, DC (GDC) office. Violence against women and girls is an urgent global tragedy. Yet, against the backdrop of appalling statistics, thousands of women and girls demonstrate extraordinary acts of bravery by refusing to be victims of violence.
They leave behind family, possessions, and lifelong community ties to seek safety and security in the United States. But a life of dignity is not guaranteed even for those who make it to our shores. Immigrant women and girls face many unique barriers in their quest for justice, including extreme poverty, limited English proficiency, isolation from friends or family, and lack of understanding of a complex U.S. legal system.
Tahirih Justice Center stands alone as the only national, multi-city organization providing a broad range of direct legal and social services, policy advocacy, and community education to protect immigrant women and girls who have fled violence. Now in its 21st year, Tahirih is a respected leader in the field, known for an effective, efficient, and innovative model of service.
The Executive Director of the Greater DC region will join an exceptional national leadership team and lead and nurture a highly talented regional team in: developing and executing strategic goals for the region; collaboratively raising approximately $1.5 million annually and managing a $1.9 million regional budget; and actively representing Tahirih in the communities it serves. This is a highly visible, public facing role. The ideal candidate will be a skilled at leveraging resources to achieve aggressive programmatic, fundraising, and strategic goals in a fast-paced environment. The successful candidate will be a proven self-starter who can effectively multi-task and easily shift gears from being strategic to tactical. The preferred candidate will be a leader with prior management experience who can foster a consultative and collaborative work environment that embodies Tahirih’s mission.
