You never know were this role might take you – our current Acting Chair El Boydell began her journey on the board as secretary, and our Executive Director, Steph, first connected with Women’s Circus as board secretary.

“Being the Board Secretary at Women’s Circus strengthened my understanding of governance, financial documents interpretation and organisational policies. It connected me to a group of people all committed to inter-sectional feminism from a wide variety of industries and job roles, people I would not of been connected with otherwise. It was very rewarding” – Past Board Secretary
