CARE International in Pakistan (CIP) seeks a Chief of Party (COP) for the anticipated 3-5 years USAID-funded Women’s Economic Empowerment and Transformation (WEET) project. WEET will help women in target geographic areas (FATA/KP, Northern Sindh, South Punjab, and potentially Baluchistan) to earn higher incomes and work in an environment increasingly free of violence and more conducive to their labor. 
It will provide new skills, access to resources, and linkages with markets to women in the informal economy, including home-based workers and unprotected piece-rate workers. The activity will conduct a survey of women-dominated micro-industries in each geographic area and tailor assistance appropriately to each context and will also explore non-traditional sectors with potential for increased participation by women. There will be a special focus on working with men and boys to change attitudes towards women’s participation in the labor force, their position at home, in the community and at large in society, and the acceptability of Gender Based Violence.
The activity will also engage local communities to expand the space for women’s economic labor and social participation.  It will create local networks of women workers and build their capacity to mentor others as well as identify and advocate solutions to barriers to social and economic empowerment. WEET will connect local networks to various stakeholders, including labor unions, employers’ associations, micro-finance institutions, and local elected representatives to build support for solutions to these obstacles.
