FiLiA VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Who are we?
Our organisation is called FiLiA, a word meaning daughter, reflecting our intention to steadfastly continue the work of our fore-mothers to create a better world for our daughters. We are a women-led, volunteer organisation. At the centre of our work is an annual conference showcasing and disseminating the work of researchers, NGOs, campaigners, artists and individuals who focus on improving the world for women and girls. We were granted charitable status for the purposes of promoting equality and diversity, promoting human rights, and promoting the arts.

Who are we looking for?
One of the challenges that we have faced is making our conference audience as diverse and truly reflective of the communities that make up our society. We are determined that this is addressed and that our conference is accessible for people from all backgrounds and walks of life. This is where you come in. We are looking for a self-motived woman of colour who is able to draw upon existing networks, and build new ones, to ensure that our conference is widely promoted and attended by people whose voices we need to hear. We are looking for someone who is confident in introducing themselves to new groups and in building relationships; someone who understands intersectionality and the barriers to inclusion; and someone who is enthusiastic about building grassroots movements. We are determined to do better in engaging Black and minoritised women and girls and are looking for someone who can lead this change.

When do you start?
As soon as possible!

Who do you report in to?
Nobody! We are all in this together. You will work closely with the rest of the team to generate ideas and engage as far a reach as possible.

What experience do you need to have?
We are looking for someone who has experience of working with Black and minoritised women and girls. Ideally, you will have a strong network connection, or the confidence to make the first move in introducing yourself to new groups. We are looking for someone who is passionate about including a range of voices to our conference and ensure that it is serving the needs of all. We understand that we need to make internal changes to better engage a diverse audience and need someone who is able to support us to shake things up.

What are the next steps?
Write to us at info@filia.org.uk with some information about yourself, including any relevant experience, and why you would like to take this role on, as well as questions you may have.
