Are you a mission-focused leader who wants to join a leading, national Indian Country institution?
Do you enjoy taking on big projects, building strong organizational culture that values equity, and
developing internal operational excellence?

The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) is seeking a candidate to fill the

The board and staff will appreciate your social justice values, approachability, analytical and
problem solving skills, and sense of humor. Together, we’ll continue NICWA’s legacy.
