Co-Chair IWG

Non-Exec Role - no salary
Closing Date
28 October 2020

The IWG is seeking a Co-Chair. 

The IWG is led by two co-chairs. One is from the new host country; they will take overall responsibility and leadership for delivery of the IWG Secretariat & World Conference 2022 - 2026. The other will be from the immediate past host country (ideally the co-chair that led the IWG Secretariat & World Conference 2018 - 2022). If the latter is unavailable, a suitable candidate shall be chosen by the IWG Global Executive according to policy. Between them, the co-chairs will decide on a division of labour.

The co-chair should possess the requisite influence within the host country and/or internationally in order to raise the profile of the IWG’s work, seek funding, as well as lead and promote the IWG’s initiatives globally and locally. They should also have the support of key stakeholders such as government organisation and non-government organisations locally to support successful delivery.

How to apply

You should submit a cover letter, no more than three sides of A4 (total 1500 words) which includes a personal statement of purpose serving as IWG Co-Chair for 2022-26.

You should also explain why you want the role and how you meet the role specifications. Please send to
