The Women's Centre of Calgary stands as a beacon of empowerment, advocacy, and support in the heart of the city. This esteemed organization is dedicated to creating a safe community where women can connect, access resources, and receive the support necessary to enhance their lives and influence society. As we seek a new Executive Director, we invite a leader who is passionate about gender equity and community development to join us. This role offers the chance to lead a vibrant team committed to making a significant impact on the lives of women and their families across Calgary.


The Executive Director of the Women's Centre of Calgary will steer the organization through its next phases of growth and impact. This key leadership role involves overseeing the implementation of strategic goals, expanding programming, and enhancing service delivery to meet the evolving needs of our community. You will lead with a collaborative spirit, ensuring that the Centre remains a leader in addressing the challenges facing women today. This position provides a unique opportunity to shape the policies and practices that directly affect women, advocating for systemic change that promotes equality and justice.


The ideal candidate will guide the organization with a strategic vision that incorporates a strong commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). You will be responsible for cultivating a welcoming environment that supports all women, particularly those from marginalized and underserved communities. Your role will involve fostering partnerships with local stakeholders, securing funding to ensure the sustainability of the Centre, and advocating for policies that uplift all women. Your innovative approach will be crucial in developing programs that adapt to the changing needs of the community while maintaining the integrity and values of the Centre.


We are searching for a dynamic individual with demonstrated experience in nonprofit leadership, ideally within women-focused advocacy organizations. A deep understanding of gender issues and a proven track record in EDI initiatives are essential. The successful candidate will possess excellent organizational and communication skills, with the ability to engage effectively with diverse groups, including community members, donors, and policymakers. A strong educational background in social sciences, women’s studies, or a related field is preferred. Your leadership will not only influence the Centre but also contribute to the broader conversation on women’s rights and empowerment in Calgary and beyond.


Join us at the Women’s Centre of Calgary, where your leadership will empower women, drive social change, and foster an inclusive community. This role is more than a job—it’s a calling to lead with passion, integrity, and a commitment to making a lasting difference in the lives of women and their families. Your visionary approach will help shape a future where every woman has the opportunity to achieve her full potential.
