The WWHF’s mission is to innovate, impact and improve women’s health in Wisconsin.
The WWHF was founded in 1997 when Sue Ann Thompson, then First Lady of the state, was recovering from breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. As she traveled the state, she saw that women lacked important information about their health and healthcare options, so she vowed to help other women access quality care and community resources. Mrs. Thompson is President of the WWHF Board and works from the WWHF office.
The WWHF has a 20+ year history of collaborating with state, private, and public organizations while providing women with high quality health education information. WWHF programming focuses on impacting major causes of morbidity and mortality for Wisconsin women: cancer, heart disease, diabetes, tobacco use, mental health, dementia, domestic violence, osteoporosis and more. WWHF programs span all 72 counties, providing direct services to roughly 7,000 women each year.
WWHF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a 12 member Board of Directors comprised of volunteers. WWHF has 25+ employees with a centrally located office in Madison and outreach staff around the state.
We are seeking a creative professional who understands the importance of high-quality work products, can work independently, and enjoys content creation. The WWHF’s Communications Manager will lead our agency’s communications work through strategic planning, writing, desktop design, and management of digital assets. This part-time opportunity is a great fit for an experienced communications professional who enjoys a high level of autonomy, a fast-paced work environment, and the chance to see their ideas through to project completion.
