Do you have a deep-rooted passion to change the world? Are you a natural networker? Do you choke up when you witness a girl discover her own inner worth?
Most importantly, do you believe photography can be a tool for achieving gender equality?
What we’ve got going on.
We change gender dynamics in economically challenged communities by teaching photography to girls. The girls then teach the boys. Girls build self-confidence while improving their leadership & presentation skills, while boys respect & value the girls in their communities.
We are looking for a new Board of Director with a passion for finances who can help us grow & expand as an organization so we can scale our programs to achieve greater impact. We have held workshops in Haiti, Kenya, India & NYC. A Uganda workshop is starting in 2017.
This is where you come in.
What makes you a rockstar for this role.
+ You understand global gender equality is more than a "girls only" effort. It can only be achieved when both girls & boys understand the importance of living as equals.
+ You love crunching numbers, creating & overseeing budgets and knowing what will make the IRS happy.
+ You are a natural at fundraising by networking with corporations, individuals, foundations & others; throwing successful fundraising events; and have no qualms about asking people to open up their wallets.
+ You communicate clearly. You write well. You inspire through the written word.
+ You are based locally to NYC for 4 quarterly Board Meetings + 3-5 hours of remote work per month. And you play well in the sandbox with others.
+ You are motivated & driven. You’ll take ownership of the time you spend as a Board Member & truly make a difference. You are slightly OCD about your work & take pride in it.
Extra awesome if
+ You have prior Board or Advisory Board experience.
To join the fun
+ Email babita@KIOOproject.org sharing what part of our mission you connect with the most, your resume & an example of an introduction you can make on behalf of KIOO that would further our fundraising needs. Show off your Board Member superpowers!
+ Attach or describe your favorite photograph & why it speaks to you. Can be taken by you or another photographer. No judgements. Just want to get you thinking like a photographer!
