Boston Women’s Workforce Council (BWWC)

The Boston Women’s Workforce Council (BWWC) facilitates a public-private partnership between the Boston Mayor’s office and Boston-area employers who are dedicated to closing gender and racial wage gaps at their organizations.

Employers sign the 100% Talent Compact pledging to:

  • Seek gender equality in their firms
  • Share best practices with other Compact Signers by attending quarterly briefing sessions
  • Contribute their payroll data confidentially every two years to the BWWC Wage Gap Measurement effort so that we can report a community snapshot of progress made in closing the gaps
  • Provide funding for the Council’s operations

The BWWC reflects a first-in-the-nation approach to tackling pay equity and, as such, we are contacted often by other municipalities, both nationally and internationally, looking to create similar models.

The Administrative Manager is a staff person charged with maintaining and enhancing the BWWC operations in the following areas:

Systems Maintenance, Improvements and Records Retention

  • Maintain, recommend, and implement changes to website, Constant Contact list, wage gap calculator tool, Salesforce, and Square Space
  • Maintain and enhance all systems that support BWWC operations, including outsourced IT, Google Suite for email and calendars and all Microsoft Office products

The Administrative Manager must be extremely comfortable multi-tasking since many of their duties happen at the same time. The Executive Director will help in setting priorities. Candidate must be flexible and comfortable with what they thought they’d get done on Monday might be put off until Wednesday because of more urgent matters. Attention to detail is also very important as is an ability to communicate both in writing and orally with team members and Executive Director.

The BWWC is committed to a policy of providing equal employment opportunities for all and does not discriminate on race, color, ethnic origin, creed or religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, veteran status or physical or mental disability.
