About the YWCA Evanston/North Shore
YWCA Evanston/North Shore (“YWCA”) works to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice and strengthen the 16 communities it serves. Each is key to creating a world where all women and girls—especially women and girls of color— can thrive and achieve the vision they have for their lives.
Founded in 1931, YWCA Evanston/North Shore has provided safe housing and support for young women and families across the Northern Cook Country region. Directly impacting over 10,000 people annually, YWCA’s programs and services have continually evolved and grown to meet the changing needs of the communities it serves.
All of YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s programs address three overlapping areas of focus: Racial Justice and Civil Rights, Economic Empowerment of Women, and Health and Safety for Women and Girls.
The next Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) will provide bold leadership and direction to fulfill the YWCA’s mission, broaden its impact, and amplify its profile and reach.
The CEO is responsible for the achievement of all operational and strategic goals, including fund and donor development, fiscal management, programming, board relations, staff oversight, community relations and administrative matters. This includes oversight of the $7.5M budget and team of 110 staff members.
