IWDA has a formal Volunteer program that sees around 30 women each year provide their time and expertise in support of our teams working for women’s rights.

Volunteers complete a range of work assignments such as program support, research and support for research programs, assistance with fundraising and donor support, communications and general administration.

Volunteers gain valuable and practical work experience and exposure to our organisation, the field of international development and gender equality.  Past volunteers have gone on to their dream career within IWDA, employment with other NGOs and the public sector or applied their volunteer hours to complement academic study.

Why does IWDA support Volunteers?

As a feminist organisation we are committed to giving back to our community and investing in the future of our business and industry.  We are proud to support our many volunteers on their professional and personal journeys.

IWDA offers a variety of volunteer and intern positions based in Melbourne, Australia. Generally volunteer roles require a time commitment of 1 day per week for a 6 month period. Please note: IWDA is unable to accept volunteer applications which do not respond to an advertised opportunity.
