Posted on: June 26, 2013
Posted by: Center for Reproductive Rights


The Center for Reproductive Rights (the "Center"), a global human rights organization founded in 1992 with expertise in constitutional and international law, seeks a Director of the Office of the President to be based in its New York City headquarters. This new position will play a central role in helping the President & CEO focus on strategic objectives and external relations as well as facilitate the smooth and effective day-to-day operation of the Office of the President. The Director will oversee Board affairs, and serve as the link between the senior management team and the President, coordinating teams across senior leadership, maintaining awareness of progress towards key priorities and overarching plans across the organization, and keeping the President well informed on a day-to-day basis. The ideal candidate will be both detail-oriented and highly strategic. S/he must be an exceptional project manager, who can build strong working relationships across the organization, as well as train and lead a newly formed team and structure for the Office of the President, which includes a Manager of Scheduling and Associate. S/he will thrive in a fast-paced environment, operating with a cool head, impeccable discretion, and sound judgment.


The Director will join the team of an innovative and cutting-edge organization committed to promoting the equality, reproductive health, and self-determination of women throughout the world. The Director will have the benefit of the Center's many strengths:
  • · A dynamic CEO whose visionary leadership has expanded the organization's scope and tripled its budget in the last decade.
  • · A compelling global human rights mission and cutting-edge legal and policy work that has a reputation for quality and excellence.
  • · A growing organization that has consistently increased in budget and staff size, program impact, and global presence, with 4 new overseas offices in the last 2 years.
  • · Established relationships with and the respect of NGO partners, officeholders, the private bar, opinion leaders, journalists, and academics.
  • · An organizational philosophy that values, supports, and has a proven track record of best non-profit management practices.
  • · An impressive and engaged Board, strong leadership team and a solid balance sheet.
The Director will be joining the Center at an exciting time for the institution and at a critical time. In 2012, the Center launched a new five-year strategic plan with bold new initiatives to go on the offense and change the discourse and policy landscape, while significantly expanding its capacity with new programing and ambitious fundraising goals.

The Center works across the globe on issues including access to life-saving obstetrics care, contraception, abortion services, and comprehensive sexuality information, as well as the prevention of forced sterilization, child marriage, and FGM. National-level courts, regional human rights courts, and United Nations bodies have increasingly recognized that a woman's right to reproductive autonomy and reproductive healthcare are basic human rights that must be protected. The Center has played a key role in these groundbreaking victories and has built the legal capacity of women's rights advocates in over 50 countries. The Center's groundbreaking litigation and advocacy has transformed how reproductive rights are understood by courts, governments, and human rights bodies, and its undivided focus on reproductive rights has given it unparalleled expertise in the use of constitutional, international and comparative human rights law to hold governments accountable for failing to ensure women's access to critical reproductive healthcare services.

The Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization governed by a 20-person board of directors. The Center has a diverse staff of over 110 professionals from around the world. Headquartered in NYC, the Center has offices in Washington, D.C., Nairobi, Kenya, Bogotá, Colombia, Kathmandu, Nepal, and Geneva, Switzerland. Its annual budget is $18.6 million.

The Center is led by President & CEO Nancy Northup, who brings a rich mix of experience in public interest law, government service, and women's rights advocacy. Under her leadership, the Center has expanded its international work, including the launch of an international litigation campaign that has included the first abortion case decided by the U.N. Human Rights Committee and the first case to frame preventable maternal deaths as a human rights violation. She also led the integration of the human rights framework in the Center's U.S. work and the establishment of the Law School Initiative. Before joining the Center in 2003, Ms. Northup served as the founding director of the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School; as a prosecutor and Deputy Chief of Appeals in the U.S. Attorney's office for the Southern District of New York; and as a law clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. She has taught constitutional law and human rights as an adjunct professor at NYU and Columbia. She graduated from Brown University and Columbia Law School, where she was a Kent Scholar and managing editor of the Columbia Law Review. A frequent public speaker, Ms. Northup is quoted widely in the national press and has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, CNN, FOX News, PBS, MSNBC and NPR.


The Director's main responsibilities will include:
  • Coordinate the schedule, planning, and operations of the Office of the President and its interactions with the management team and their departments, the Board of Directors, as well as other key external stakeholders to build relationships and communicate and execute organizational strategy and goals.

Founded in 1992, the Center for Reproductive Rights (the Center) is a global human rights organization that promotes women's equality worldwide by securing reproductive rights in constitutional and international human rights law. Its mission is straightforward and ambitious: to advance reproductive health and rights as fundamental rights that all governments are legally obligated to protect, respect and fulfill. The Center is unmatched as a reproductive rights organization in its expertise in U.S. constitutional law, comparative law, and international human rights law.

The Center works across the globe on issues including access to life-saving obstetric care, contraception, abortion services, and comprehensive sexuality information. National-level courts, regional and international human rights s bodies have increasingly recognized that a woman's right to reproductive autonomy and reproductive healthcare are basic human rights that must be protected. The Center for Reproductive Rights has played a key role in securing these legal victories and works with attorneys and advocates in the U.S., Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.

The Center is governed by a 20-person Board of Directors and employs more than 100 professionals from Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Kenya, Korea, Nepal, Nigeria, the Philippines, Slovakia, Sweden and the US. In addition to its headquarters in New York, the Center has offices in Washington, DC, Nairobi, Bogotá, Kathmandu, and Geneva.

In the U.S. Legal Program, the Center's preeminent litigation team has helped millions of women and their families by securing government funding for abortions, striking down abortion bans and other access restrictions, and protecting teens' access to emergency contraception and confidential reproductive healthcare services and information. The Center's complimentary legislative advocacy initiatives and strategies have helped local advocates fight restrictive abortion legislation in over 25 states as well as promote reproductive rights and access to health care for millions of women. Through our human rights advocacy, the Center has been able to promote the integration and adoption of human rights principles in the domestic sphere while systematically norm-building and elevating local reproductive health issues within international treaty monitoring bodies and partner organizations.

Through its Global Legal Program, the Center has brought groundbreaking cases before national courts, U.N. committees, and regional human rights bodies, and has built the legal capacity of women's rights advocates in over 50 countries. The Center's global advocacy has shaped the international human rights landscape greatly expanding the interpretation of human rights norms to include reproductive rights protections.

The Center's Government Relations Program, based in Washington, DC since 2009, focuses on both U.S. domestic and foreign policy, providing leadership within the community of reproductive rights allies. The Center informs the policy debate at the federal level by producing legal analysis of legislation, comments on regulations, polling data, and other materials to policymakers in Congress, the Administration, and the White House. It works to vigorously defend and expand access to a full range of reproductive healthcare; counter abortion stigma as it is reflected in federal policy; and ensure U.S. foreign policy reflects the full range of women's health needs around the globe.


The Director of Pro Bono Services will be joining the Center at an exciting time for the institution, and a critical time for the nation and for the reproductive rights movement globally. The Center has dramatically expanded its pro bono support from domestic and foreign law firms from $80,000 to more than $5 million annually.

She/he will be responsible for developing, maintaining and expanding relationships with law firms to leverage effective legal support for the Center's US Legal, Government Relations and Global Legal programs.
