Position Description

The National Partnership for Women & Families promotes fairness in the workplace, reproductive health and rights, access to quality affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. We believe that actions speak louder than words, and for four decades we have fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families.

In collaboration with the eight members of an energetic, productive, and diverse team, the Workplace Programs Federal Policy Analyst will be responsible for analyzing quantitative and qualitative data sources, conducting original research, and developing materials that advance our workplace policy agenda, with particular emphasis on building the case for national paid family and medical leave and paid sick days policies. The Federal Policy Analyst will work with and under the direction of the Senior Government Affairs Manager, in consultation with the Vice President. S/he also will collaborate with the Workplace Researcher/Writer on data analysis projects that have federal policy implications, develop policy-relevant documents, and contribute to other outreach and advocacy initiatives.
