Chair of the ActionAid Ireland board (voluntary position)
We are seeking a leader who is passionate about women’s rights, combatting poverty and addressing structural change.

As an organisation that seeks to be guided by feminist leadership principles, the Chair will champion this and help drive our strategy.

The role requires someone who is deeply committed to solidarity, human rights based approaches to poverty eradication and working globally and in Ireland to deliver and campaign for last change.
The Chair is required to be highly strategic, an excellent negotiator and a champion of shifting power and recognising the value of diverse views.

Our transformative vision of a just world free from poverty, oppression and patriarchy requires transformative feminist leaders: leaders who enable others to lead, building power with them instead of over them. To develop this approach, we have adopted a set of feminist leadership principles.
We are embracing feminist principles not only because they are consistent with what we do, but also because we know that they are vital to the success of our mission.
We embody these feminist principles through our behaviour in all aspects of our work and our workplace culture, while acknowledging that this is a journey of continual improvement. Read more here.
