Job opportunity: Ecofeminist Just Development Alternatives Coordinator

June 20

WoMin is looking for a dynamic, creative development alternatives practitioner to steer our work in this area from an explicitly ecofeminist and Pan African perspective.

You will specifically be responsible for:
• Leading a continental dialogue and dreaming process with women impacted by all forms of extractives on their vision and proposals for a just and free community, society, and Africa.
• Supporting a wide alliance of groups working on land and food, forests, water, alternative economies, cultural history and on women’s rights on the African continent document and construct a ‘map’ of living alternatives.
• Working within a community of practitioners, artists and intellectuals to document, theorise, and reinvigorate African concepts and traditions that inform Pan African development alternatives.
• Researching, theorising and conceptualising an African Ecofeminist concept of the Just Transition, and participating in regional and international platforms to amplify this concept widely.

We hope to have the person in place by 1 August 2022. The job profile contains further details about the post and the candidate we are looking for. We hope to recruit a person who speaks and writes fluently in English but is also able to work in Portuguese or French. Our preference will be for a candidate outside of South Africa.

Please submit your curriculum vitae with a cover letter to [email protected] by close of day Monday 20 June 2022.
