Programming Manager

Employee Type: Full Time
Reports To: Senior Director of Worker Experience
Work Location: Remote
Salary: $79,310-82,933


The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the leading national voice for dignity, respect, and recognition for domestic workers in the United States. NDWA was founded in 2007 by organizers and worker leaders in six cities representing nannies, house cleaners, and care workers, and now represents an alliance of more than 76 organizations across 22 states and 395,000 domestic workers nationally.

We envision a society where domestic work is valued as essential to our collective well-being, domestic workers are leaders in shaping the care sector, and domestic work jobs are good, economically secure jobs.

For over 15 years, we’ve worked to advance our mission by making domestic work visible. We’ve worked to pass policies that enable rights and higher wages for domestic workers across the country, changed public awareness and opinion about the dignity and value of care work, and built the capacity and leadership of domestic workers to organize and advocate for their rights.

We see the next era of our organization as an opportunity to move domestic work from newfound visibility towards transformation, and we’re ready to elevate care workers to the essential workers of the 21st-century economy.

We’re a multi-racial, multi-lingual organization building a powerful movement rooted in the human rights, dignity, and equality of domestic workers, care workers, immigrant women, and women of color.


NDWA creates opportunities for domestic workers to develop leadership skills and put them to use to advance the organization’s mission of winning rights and respect. In addition, NDWA is a democratic organization where members have a voice in strategic direction and priorities, and where domestic workers are central to organizational governance. Our matrix of worker leadership includes programs for workers to develop entry-level skills and then progress to more advanced roles in areas including outreach, enforcement of rights, strategy and campaign development and governance.

NDWA seeks a skilled, highly organized and values-aligned Programming Manager to coordinate worker trainings and programs, ensuring that our leadership pipeline can flourish and expand. Using excellent project management and popular education program design skills, the Programming Manager will coordinate some of NDWA’s existing political education, leadership and workforce development programs including programs for NDWA’s broad base of workers and more intensive courses for its deep core of advanced leaders, and will collaborate with others to develop new training agendas as new needs emerge. The Program Manager will work under the supervision of the Sr Director of Worker Experience and will collaborate closely with NDWA’s Organizing Team, made up of 35+ local, national and digital organizers. This is a remote position that focuses on national-level programming delivered to domestic workers throughout the U.S., using online meeting and programming tools, with some in-person components.
