As EMPOWER, we advance women’s political equality towards justice and democracy centred on feminist and human rights principles. We work with women and youth of diverse communities to build their leadership potential and transform cultures and mindsets towards dismantling power structures that reinforce inequalities.
Through advocacy, capacity building, research and resource development, we identify strategic connections between issues, actors and movements from local to international levels.
The Executive Director’s role is to represent the organization in an official capacity and to lead the organisation—ensuring that the planning and implementation of programmes and management have high quality outcomes and are consistent with EMPOWER’s vision, mission and values. The leadership provided should uphold feminist principles of a democratic non-hierarchical structure, where flexibility and collective decision-making are prioritised.
