Digital Communications Associate
At PAI, we are motivated by one powerful truth: a woman who is in charge of her reproductive health can change her life and transform her community. PAI is a global organization that champions policies that put women in charge of their reproductive health, including access to contraception, and safe and legal abortion.
PAI achieves this through a 50+ year presence in Washington, DC, advocating with those who drive policy change, and defending against policies that harm women and girls. We also make it possible for civil society organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to access the funding, training and partnership they need to achieve policy change in their own local contexts. We are simultaneously on the front lines and in the background, focused first and foremost on the impact our work has on the lives of women and girls around the world.
The contribution of our 40 experts and staff is multiplied by an exemplary board of directors, and further leveraged by the work of partners in more than 17 countries. We pride ourselves on a strong set of institutional values that prizes excellence, teamwork, integrity and mutual respect. We hold firm our commitment to people, and as such we offer a generous benefits package, great work/life perks, and a flexible environment in which individuals are supported to be their best selves.
