USAID is still an old boy's club. It can be a great place to work for a lot of reasons, but you need to go into it aware - be prepared for sexism.
Meet the leadership you would work directly with and try to meet experienced women in the office.
Beware the old boys club. There is a facade of equality, but in daily life you often encounter sexism.
On the GS scale so feels fairly equal when it comes to compensation, but sometimes men get more recognition for their work. Overall, very flexible hours if you need to leave to pick up your child or have a doctor's appointment in the afternoon - but this is dependent on your direct supervisor.
Join Women@USAID as they are working toward improving women's work situation as is possible within the US government structures.
No unpaid leave with the Federal Government. You can only take what you have accumulated for sick and annual leave.
