Women’s Congressional Policy Institute (WCPI) is a nonpartisan public policy organization whose mission is to bring together a community of bipartisan women policymakers and trusted partners to advance issues of importance to women, develop the next generation of women leaders, and foster a more effective and representative democracy. WCPI fills a critical role in the policy and advocacy community. As a nonprofit, it does not lobby or take positions on legislation or policy. For nearly 30 years WCPI has worked to strengthen and expand the capacity of the Caucus through its briefings and meetings for women Members of Congress and their staff, with the aim to bring them closer together across party lines and to encourage bipartisan policy priorities to advance issues of interest to women and families. These include women’s health, international issues, 21st century workforce development issues, as well as events to strengthen relationships among women. Its congressional briefings are free and open to the public.

Women's Congressional Policy Institute is committed to core values that, along with its mission, guide its work and shape the culture of the organization. It is committed to bipartisanship. Encouraging policy priorities that span the partisan divide helps it foster solutions important to all women. It is committed to cultivating women’s leadership. While a record number of women currently serve in Congress, there remains a dearth of women in leadership positions in the public policy arena. WCPI seeks to empower women to lead on Capitol Hill and in public policy. It is committed to representative democracy.

"The Women’s Congressional Policy Institute is unique. We truly are bipartisan in every aspect of our work, and diversity, equity, and inclusion are baked into our DNA—this has been true for decades, not just in the past few years. The decision to seek a Director of Development and Communications is driven by the clear potential for a robust individual giving program and I am seeking a partner with the development and communications experience and motivation to develop and direct this effort, as well as to expand our foundation outreach." —Cindy Hall, President
