Do you believe in a Gender Equal New Zealand? If so, consider becoming a Board member of New Zealand’s iconic gender equality organisation – the National Council of Women New Zealand, founded by Kate Sheppard.
We’re in the midst of re-positioning ourselves to finish the job Kate started, and you could be a part of our new movement. Building on our long, proud history of achieving social and economic change, we’re now leading a new movement that is more modern, vibrant and relevant for New Zealanders today! Gender Equal NZ aims to harness the growing interest in gender equality and to take collective action for change.
We are looking for experienced, action-orientated governance professionals who are committed to our cause, with proven skills in one or more of the following areas:
Business enterprise/growth/ financial management
Fundraising, sponsorships and revenue diversification
Public relations, media
Stakeholder relationship management
In addition to governance, you will also be able to leverage your networks and provide “hands-on” support for some of the projects that are currently in operation.
The Board wishes to reflect the diverse nature of our population. Applicants representing tangata whenua, as well those representing minority ethnic groups are desired.
Our seven member pro bono board meets at least seven times per year (predominantly by zoom in the current environment), and the commitment from each board member averages around 8 hours per week.
Board members will be elected at our online conference on 20th & 21st November. Three current Board members whose terms are ending will be seeking re-election.
