About National Partnership for Women and Families

The National Partnership for Women and Families (NPWF) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization that uses public education and advocacy to promote fairness in the workplace, quality health care and other policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. Founded in 1971 as the Women's Legal Defense Fund, NPWF has been a powerful and effective advocate for women and families. It was instrumental in bringing about reforms like the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 and legal cases that ultimately prohibited sexual harassment in 1977.

Internships are available in several departments, such as communications, the annual luncheon, fundraising and membership. There are also positions available in NPWF's program areas, including health, work and family and workplace fairness. In addition, the National Partnership for Women and Families offers law clerk internships in the health, work and family, and workplace fairness program areas.
