9to5 Executive Director

9to5 is conducting a national search for our next Executive Director!

The Board of Directors and Senior Leadership Team are excited to launch a search process which honors our legacy of powerful, inclusive leadership.

Following an exceptional twelve years leading 9to5 National Association of Working Women, former Executive Director Linda Meric retired in June 2017.  During her tenure, Linda led 9to5 with vision, dedication and commitment to our members and mission. She has had a tremendous impact on 9to5 and the broader social justice movement, and helped build a strong organization with an important legacy.

Since Linda’s departure last summer, 9to5’s Senior Leadership Team has led the organization with dedication and integrity during a period of transition and growth.  

We have initiated a Leadership Transition process with the assistance of Elsa A. Ríos,Principal of Strategies for Social Change LLC. Elsa brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this process, and we are very pleased and confident to be working with her to identify 9to5’s next Executive Director and ensure a healthy executive leadership transition.

As someone who cares about working women, we invite you to help us find our next extraordinary leader by circulating the 9to5 Executive Director job announcement.
