Applications will  be accepted from now until August 16, 2021.

We are so excited you are interested in Women’s Fund Circles. Below we’ve included a bit of information about the Women’s Fund, and we also invite you to visit our website to learn more.

This application process is all about YOU! We want to hear your story and learn what brought you to Circles. This relationship goes both ways, and we should be learning about each other as we move through this process!

We invite you to complete this application in a way that makes sense for you, in *your* voice. This is not a formal job application, there is no “right” or “wrong” way to respond.  We seek to build a diverse coalition within Circles and that means considering the whole person, not just what’s on a resume.

The application process consists of two parts:

1. Open-ended questions that help us learn more about you.

For those selected to proceed:

2. 15-minute Zoom conversation with members of the Circles Leadership team.
Our goal is to create an environment in Circles that is safe, welcoming and rich with diverse experiences. We hope you enjoy this experience!
