Call for Proposals: Equity + Advocacy Programming

Built by women for everyone, The Riveter is on a mission to change the future of work for women. To do so, we are looking for experts to join The Riveter’s world-class programming portfolio aimed to advance workplace diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and support a dynamic community looking to direct their power towards social and political change.

Our 2019 programmatic focus areas include, but are not limited to the following:

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
Programs that build knowledge, skills and networks by way of the following:

  • Cultivate a sense of community for diverse, underrepresented and/or marginalized groups
  • Build strategic alliances through mentorship, sponsorship and allyship
  • Provide actionable tools to close the gender pay equity gap
  • Operationalize leadership and management of DEI work in the workplace

Advocacy & Civic Engagement: Building Women’s Social, Economic, and Political Power

  • Education and opportunities for action on key issues related to the advancement of women from an intersectional perspective, such as education equity, gender and reproductive justice, racial justice, voting rights, and more.
  • Tactical “how to” programs on activism, allyship, organizing, lobbying, civic engagement and leadership.
