Womenful Voice

Image_202109211111

Womenful Voice is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to empower women to advocate and address the most critical needs of vulnerable girls and women through policies, education, and health to achieve long-term positive outcomes.

The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors plays a vital role in Womenful Voice achieving its goals in their governance, policy and strategy approval, and fundraising activities. Directors are expected to actively contribute their leadership, financial resources, time, and talents to meeting the organization's objectives. The Board actively seeks qualified Directors who meet the highest personal and professional standards and reflect the diversity of our worldwide community in terms of gender, ethnicity, and profession. New Directors are elected for an initial three-year term and then become eligible for reelection to a second three-year term, subject to review. The review is based on approved Board expectations, strategic objectives, and the director's continuation in meeting the organization's goal. There is a two-term limit.

Responsibilities

  • Believe in the organization's purpose, mission, and approach and commit to act responsibly and prudently as its steward.
  • Acceptance of legal, fiduciary, and ethical responsibilities to ensure the organization does the work possible to pursue its goals.
  • Attendance at quarterly board meetings and conference calls.
  • Active participation during and between board meetings, including resource development, policy and strategy oversight activities, and special events (make Womenful Voice a priority in civic involvement).
  • Select one area of your personal expertise or passion for working with Womenful Voice to help us improve or grow.
  • Represent the organization well and be an effective spokesperson in interpreting the organization's work and values to the community.
  • Maintain independence and objectivity in conducting Womenful Voice business and avoid even the appearance of a conflict o interest, disclosing any potential conflicts to the Board in a timely fashion.
  • Work with staff, volunteers, and other board members in good faith as partners toward the achievement of the organization's goals, mindful that the role of the Board is governance, policy, and strategy approval (not management).
  • Stay informed about the organization's activities, including reviewing financial statements, asking relevant questions, and requesting information as appropriate; be willing to participate in making decisions actively and take responsibility for them; and oversee the hiring and accountability of any Chief Officer.

Fundraising and Financial Participation

  • A minimum personal giving threshold ($1k annual minimum; ability to give more); Womenful Voice is among the top priorities in personal giving.
  • Active participation in fundraising, working with staff to target new significant gifts ($10k+ from individuals, corporations, and foundations), serving as a champion within own organization (where applicable) and recommending funding sources to the CEO.
  • Be prepared to pay all personal expenses related to attendance at meetings and events (transportation, meals, lodging, etc.) since Womenful Voice does not pay a spend or subsidy for board members’ expenses.
