Who Are We?

Girl Effect is an international non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust, and need.

We are led by a diverse team of people and partners across the world who are committed to unlocking the power of girls. In addition to our immediate team, we also work with TEGAs (Technology Enabled Girl Ambassadors) and Youth Advisory Panels to ensure that youth voices, needs, and motivations inform all that we do.

We love what we do and would love you to join us on the journey! View our open positions here.

We are especially grateful to the number of donors and strategic partners who help advance our work:

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

Girl Effect is on an ambitious and transformative journey to become a leader in diversity, equity and inclusion. We are committed to building the kind of team and inclusive organization where talent belongs, grows, is challenged, and challenges others to be better and do better.

Our strength and unique proposition lies in our diversity; from different voices, perspectives and experiences which all add up to a rich
culture, helping us be a great place to work and grow.

Everything we do is firmly grounded in the principles of equity. We continually examine, review and optimize the policies and processes that
guide our employee experience and inform our decision making.

We are committed to creating an ever-more inclusive working environment, where everyone is able to fulfill their potential and maximize their contribution.

Join Us

Girl Effect is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender, gender identity or expression. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are building an organization that is increasingly representative of the communities that we serve – recruiting candidates with diverse professional, academic and cultural backgrounds.
