Work With Us

The women of IWDA are powerful advocates for women’s rights. We have impacted the lives of thousands across Asia and the Pacific and have aspirations as part of our 2020-2023 strategic plan to continue to defend and advance the rights of diverse women and girls. Every day we make tangible progress toward our vision of gender equality for all.

Our team of diverse, dedicated women are passionate, intelligent, collaborative and deeply caring. We strive for a team culture that is cohesive, friendly, inclusive and supportive.

We are fiercely values driven.  Our values are:

Feminist: we respect women’s diverse experiences, identities, knowledge and strengths and strive to empower women to realise their full potential and equal rights.

Accountable: we are honest and transparent and are committed to evaluating and communicating the outcomes of our work with integrity.

Collaborative: we build trusting relationships and strong partnerships.

Transformative: we are determined to make real, lasting improvements in diverse women’s lives.

At IWDA you can contribute to our work in a number of exciting career paths, including; Program Management and Coordination, Communications and Fundraising, Research, Policy and Advocacy Advisory and a range of supporting roles.

IWDA has an EEO exemption (H112/2018) and requests applications from women only. IWDA has a Child Rights and Protection Policy and any offer of employment will require a National Police Certificate and endorsement of IWDA’s Child Rights and Protection Code of Conduct.

IWDA is committed to advancing human rights for everyone, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, indigeneity, disability, age, displacement, caste, gender, gender identity, sexuality, sexual orientation, poverty, class or socio-economic status. IWDA takes a rights-based, feminist approach to its work in order to prioritise action on the inequities and injustices faced by women.

IWDA’s board, leadership and staff are committed to addressing racial injustice and discrimination of all forms, including within our own organisation. We endeavour to listen, learn and act to become an explicitly diverse, inclusive and anti-racist feminist organisation. This journey is core to our values and vision.
