SKILLS & ABILITIES:
In 1979, our founder, Mal Warwick, embarked on a mission to work with nonprofit causes, progressive candidates, and political committees who shared our commitment to positive social justice and environmental action. In partnership with our clients, over the past 40 years, we’ve combated the climate crisis and sought to protect the natural environment; we’ve advanced the rights of women and the LGBTQ+ community; we’ve fought racial injustice and discrimination; we’ve worked to improve healthcare and food security, fought the AIDS pandemic, advanced animal rights, promoted international development, elected progressive political leaders to office, and the list goes on.
We've remained equally committed to changing the way the world does business as a Certified Green Business, a California Benefit Corporation, and a Certified Employee-Owned Agency. And we champion a rewarding working environment where all employees can truly thrive, achieved, in part, through the equitable distribution of compensation and benefits, including:
The fast-paced workload is supported by a strong team dynamic. MWD’s account teams engage collaboratively to meet the rigorous and rewarding goals of our progressive nonprofit clients. Our teams support each other both face-to-face in an open-office environment and across multiple office locations. Our strong work ethic is matched only by our devotion to acknowledge and celebrate our successes.
Beyond being an equal opportunity employer, MWD is committed to being an anti-racist and anti-oppression organization and we have a zero-tolerance policy for racism, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and oppression of any kind. We are dedicated to the fulfillment of this commitment through our Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion initiatives that connect to every phase of the employee-owner lifecycle, starting with recruitment. We encourage candidates of all identities and backgrounds to apply for positions you believe align with your skill set and future interests. And we review applications based on agency need, position requirements, and candidate qualifications without elimination based on race, color, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, national origin, veteran status, disability, or any other protected status.
