Along with general advisory recruitment, this year FRIDA has committed to expand its Advisory Committee and have one girl advisor from each region where FRIDA funds young feminist groups. FRIDA attempts to advance a meaningful girl participation in its governance as well as increase funding girl-led groups and more visibility of girl-led activism!
We are looking for young feminist activists
- From 13-19 years old with at least one year experience and commitment to advancing girl’s rights, equality and non-discrimination and young feminist movement building.
- Has an intermediate level of spoken and written English language skills or one other FRIDA language (French, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Mandarin or Arabic);
Specific responsibilities for girl advisory include: advising on girl issues and grantmaking process, regional and specific expertise, experience in partnership building and advocacy as well as capacity development of FRIDA’s grantee partners led by or working with girls.
How to apply?
If you wish to contribute in building and supporting young feminist leadership in the Global South, we invite you to submit a letter of interest (LOI) explaining your interest and what you would be bringing to FRIDA with your experience, expertise and knowledge. Please send your LOIs to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 20th July 2017. Sending your CV/resume alongside the cover letter is desirable, but not compulsory. We expect to learn more about the candidate from their LOIs.
Important: This is the first time FRIDA has attempted to do specific outreach for girl activists in order to expand its advisory committee and make it more diverse in its shape, structure and constituency. We hope to make decision making spaces more girl-friendly in the coming years and we hope to begin by starting to redesign our own advisory.
We urge you to email us at info @youngfeministfund.org with any comments, suggestions for improvement in making our call more accessible and inclusionary. We appreciate your feedback!
