Join Our Board

 

Women Have Options relies on the skills and talents of our board members to make our mission a success. We are always looking for people throughout Ohio who can make a serious commitment to our organization. As a board member in an active grassroots non-profit, you will have plenty of opportunities to develop personally and professionally as you help us grow. If you’re interested in learning more about being a board member, please email us for more information or to apply.

As an organization committed to a vision of reproductive justice, we have a responsibility to create a pipeline of leadership and development opportunities for young people, low-income people, people of color, LGBTQIA people, people with disabilities, and others who are repeatedly and systematically affected by reproductive inequities. We believe people directly impacted by these issues are best positioned to design and lead solutions. People of color, young people, and LGBTQIA people are strongly encouraged to apply.

Although our office is based in Columbus, we are recruiting board members from Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnatti, and Appalachian Ohio. We’re particularly interested in applicants with a background in nonprofit fundraising, accounting, and/or reproductive health care. 

Women Have Options has a full-time Executive Director located in Columbus, but board members will have the responsibilities and duties of a working board. Board members should expect to spend ~5 hours per week working for the organization. Board activities are divided into committees, where most of our work occurs. Our board meets bi-monthly, in Columbus or via video conference call.
