The Gender and Justice Commission is conducting a grant project for the purpose of identifying and describing gender bias with a particular focus on how race and poverty impact women when they access the courts, participate in legal proceedings, or work in the court environment, and the consequences they experience once they leave the courthouse. Based on that evaluation, the Commission will implement innovative solutions in key targeted areas to serve as a national model for new approaches to eliminating gender bias in state courts.
The Commission has identified leading research experts to conduct and consult on necessary research. The Commission is now seeking a Project Manager whose role would be to oversee the deliverables of the grant work, coordinate with each project task lead, and compile a final narrative report in collaboration with the Commission, Washington State Law Library, Washington State Center for Court Research, and others.
