Poster that reads We Are Recruiting

At our AGM on 7th November 2023 three of our brilliant and supportive trustees will be standing down. We are very grateful to Tania Silva, Rahila Hamid and Rhian Davies for their valuable contributions to WEN Wales since they have been with us, both with development of our strategy and support in building WEN’s capacity.

We are therefore looking for three new trustees to join our Board. Following our annual review of the current board of trustees we have identified skills gaps in Human Resources, IT and Finance. We are especially interested in trustees from North, Mid or West Wales to expand the geography of our Board. We would also particularly welcome Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) and disabled applicants as we are committed to a truly intersectional approach.

What we are looking for

Our Diverse 5050 coalition campaign, our flagship mentoring project Equal Power Equal Voice, our WEN Café events, our diverse membership, and our ability to influence and challenge Welsh Government will all provoke your interest and inspire you to get involved in driving our small but influential organisation.

Ideally you will be a WEN Wales member – you can join us here if you are not already. You will have a strong network, a strong commitment to our values and our vision of a Wales free from gender discrimination, and you will be able to offer your energy, time, and strategic thinking.

Board meetings are once per quarter, and we have an annual strategy day. Currently, board meetings take place online and there will always be dial in facilities if we return to physical meetings.

About WEN Wales

Our vision is a Wales free from gender discrimination – a Wales where all have equal authority and opportunity to shape society and their own lives.

We work with our vibrant coalition of organisational and individual members to transform society. Our work sits under three pillars: we will Connect, Campaign and Champion women so our vision is realised.

Our three strategic priorities are:

  • Campaigning for Diverse 50:50 leadership in the Senedd and in Local Government
  • Strengthening women’s rights by ensuring CEDAW principles are enshrined in Welsh Law
  • Making care fair
