Who we are

Our Values


We respect people for who they are, their knowledge, skills and experience.


We are courageous and challenge the diversity norm. Being courageous means stepping out of our comfort zone and making hard decisions.


We are accountable, honest and engage fully to achieve our vision.


We strive for sustainability – as an organization, and as a contributor in a social and economic society when men and women will realise their full potential equally.

Become a volunteer

Without our volunteers, our organisation would come to a standstill – and so would our cause. We have several committees of volunteers, including Marketing, Research and Events. And we will take whatever time you can give.

Most of our volunteers commit to around 3 or 4 hours a week, and some are more ad-hoc, providing more support around events and less during quieter times. If you’d like to help us achieve our vision, please get in touch!
