Executive Director of Fair Work Center & Working Washington

Based in Seattle, WA


Fair Work Center and Working Washington are coming together to build a powerful, sustainable and scalable worker organization to advance worker and economic justice in Washington and beyond. The alignment of these two organizations will bring workers’ rights education, organizing and a legal clinic together in commitment to a shared mission. Worker centers around the country are playing increasingly vital roles in building and sustaining power for low-wage, unrepresented workers. This alignment is our opportunity here in Washington to address the needs of workers in a stronger, more sustainable way than either organization can on its own.

We are hiring a new executive director to lead the organizations and their boards through a comprehensive and equitable process for this strategic alignment, including the development of shared mission, vision and strategic plan for the organizations. The executive director will work with both a 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 Board, a talented senior team, an excellent staff of 20, and a growing grassroots membership to advance new models to build worker power in Washington and beyond.
