Volunteer Roles

Volunteering for PWN Global is a great way for you to learn how to practice what Forbes magazine calls, “permission leadership” or leadership without authority. Leading a non-profit organisation is one of the best experiences you can have. You will learn and grow and most importantly, leave a legacy.  

If you need more convincing, take a look at some of the inspiring stories of our PWN Global members and volunteers. See how PWN Global has helped each of them both personally and professionally to overcome old, and face new, challenges - that's the power of volunteering.

If you can’t find a volunteer role in the list below, but you want to offer your support, please contact your local city network, or PWN Global.

Our experience shows that the best volunteers are those who have a working knowledge of PWN, as a Premium or Online Member. Being a member shows us that you are serious about supporting our mission, and being (or having been) a member will aid you in your role.  For these reasons, we ask that all volunteer applicants can demonstrate experience in their local city network.

If you are not a member, and you still wish to volunteer, under certain circumstances, PWN Global may be able to grant you an Honorary membership. Please detail your membership status in your letter of motivation with any application.

Please note that we ask all volunteers to join as members and sign a contract to confirm that you agree to work for the association in an unpaid capacity, although we may reimburse certain expenses if pre-approved by the Treasurer.

Global Board Members are appointed every 2 years, but there are many volunteer roles, so please take a look at the opportunities below.

To volunteers past, present and future - WE SALUTE YOU! Thank you for your hard work, throughout the years.
