Trustee vacancy at the Gender and Development Network

July 2015  

The Gender and Development Network (GADN) brings together over fifty expert NGOs, as well as consultants, academics and individuals committed to working on women’s and girls’ rights, gender, equality and international development. Our vision is of a world where social justice and gender equality prevail and where all women and girls are able to realise their rights free from discrimination. Our goal is to ensure that international development policy and practice promotes gender equality and women's and girls’ rights. Our role is to support our members by sharing information and expertise, to undertake and disseminate research, and to provide expert advice and comment on government policies and projects.

At this critical time for the international development sector, as the post-2015 framework is negotiated and we review progress made since the Beijing Platform for Action, GADN is recruiting for a new member of its Board of Trustees.  This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to be involved in the governance and future direction of our dynamic network. .  We are particularly interested in finding a new Board member with knowledge and current experience of organisational development and/or management within an international non-governmental organisation.
