RISE Communications Consultant


Job Description

RISE (Reimagining Industry to Support Equality) is a collaborative initiative focused on accelerating and expanding gender equality and women’s empowerment across global supply chains, through the delivery of workplace interventions and greater cross-sector collaboration. Its mission is to empower women workers, embed gender equality in business practice and catalyze systems change with an initial focus on the apparel, footwear and home textile sectors. RISE is a membership organization that works with the world’s largest apparel and footwear brands as well as suppliers as members. RISE is founded by BSR’s HERproject, CARE, ILO-IFC Better Work, and Gap Inc’s P.A.C.E program. RISE is hosted by BSR with a longer-term intention of becoming an independent not-for-profit entity.

RISE focuses on three interrelated pillars of action to tackle both immediate barriers and medium/long term structural improvements for women workers. These include increased agency, confidence, and communication, increased access to and control over financial products, services and resources, enhancement of the capabilities of unions and industry organizations to serve as gender champions, and implementation of policies at the workplace level, but also regional and national levels that promote gender equality.

RISE is at an exciting path to grow and build our new organization and strategic focus. We are looking for a motivated and experienced communications professional who will play a key role in helping RISE drive toward our mission that women working in global supply chains experience greater dignity, equality, greater choice of opportunities and fulfilment of their rights. We are looking for a creative and strategic-thinking individual experienced in implementing integrated communications strategies that will resonate with a diverse set of stakeholders, demonstrate our tangible impact and raise our profile.

Working as part of a small, international team and reporting to the Executive Director, this role would suit someone with an excellent understanding and experience of communications and marketing in the intersection between corporate sustainability and international development, knowledge about the apparel, footwear and textile industries, and a passion for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
