The Young Women’s Movement is looking for one trustee from anywhere in Scotland to join our Board of Trustees this autumn. In their own words, here’s a message from our current Board (Rachel, Kate, Liz, Lipa, Molly, Briana, Cat, Mridul) …
I joined the board because I wanted a seat at the table where my contributions and opinions would be valued but also be taken on an actionable basis. The YWCA board has enabled me to experience conversations and topics I had not previously ventured into, that experience is invaluable. When I look at the board I see a better reflection of the kind of sisterhood I want to see more in society and having that seat is a big responsibility but a privilege.
… Do you share our belief that every young woman can shape their journey? Do you feel strongly the voices of all women in Scotland are important? Do you want to help young women feel valued, learn, grow and fulfil their potential? If you share our passion, then we want you.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU
HOW TO APPLY
We encourage everyone interested to apply and we especially encourage applications from ethnically & culturally diverse young women, as well as people with a wide range of life experiences. We are especially interested in applications from women with experience of business development and/or social enterprise. We are flexible and Board members will have the option of taking part in meetings remotely via conference call. All meeting venues are fully accessible. We want every volunteer and employee to feel welcome, included and supported.
