Equality Fund

Flexible, Global   |   December 9, 2019

The Equality Fund is a groundbreaking new initiative based in Canada delivering new momentum and critical funding for women’s movements and frontline women’s organizations across the globe. Incubated by The MATCH International Women’s Fund (now called the Equality Fund) it is a dynamic partnership between leading actors in feminist organizing, global philanthropy, and impact investing coming together to design and build the Equality Fund. Partners with shared values and priorities will each bring unique strengths, skills, and resources to realize our shared vision for gender equality in Canada and around the world.

The Equality Fund is in the exciting design and build phase to set up the organization including seeking to add members to its outstanding Board of Directors. The Board is currently designing a feminist governance model to support the critical activities needed for this major organizational development initiative. Successful candidates will be willing and able to facilitate the Equality Fund’s ambitious goal to build a new model for funding and sustaining women’s rights and gender equality around the world.

As a volunteer position, the Equality Fund Board has a governing role and bears responsibility for the vision and stewardship of the organization. The Board will ensure that the Equality Fund works in the areas of women’s rights and leadership, investment, and fund mobilization through a deeply feminist lens. In its governing role, the Board does not manage the Equality Fund; rather it delegates this function to management, and then supervises and evaluates management’s execution of Board approved strategies and business plans.
