About the role
At Fair Agenda we believe that a better future is possible, and that the actions we each take can help shape it. We know that when a community comes together to stand up on issues they believe in, they can drive powerful change.
We know that in order to achieve a fair and equal future for women is to change the structures and systems that hold women back – and we’re campaigning to do exactly that.
Our small but mighty staff team supports a community of more than 37,000 Australians who collectively take action to influence decision-makers in politics, business and our communities to change the policies that change women’s lives.
Our Board of Directors supports the team and community to affect that change – contributing expertise in strategy, governance, management and finances – to enable the Fair Agenda community to do our work.
Are you committed to creating a fair and equal future for all women? Do you have experience managing or providing oversight on organisational finances? Understand the importance of good organisational strategy and governance in enabling social change? Willing to help fundraise for an emerging campaigning community? Then apply now to join the Fair Agenda Board!
