Woman Within UK is led by a group of women who offer their gifts and time voluntarily. Without the generous commitment of these women, the Weekend and community could not grow and continue to reach as many women as possible.
We encourage those who have completed the Weekend to pay forward what they have reclaimed for themselves by volunteering to ensure the continuity of a space for women to do their work.
What you can get out of volunteering is a sense of purpose and community with other women, and the opportunity to develop your own growth and self-awareness.

Being part of the Woman Within UK Leadership Team means to support and directly impact the growth and future of the organisation and to be a key decision maker. You would need to be motivated, energetic and committed.
