Seeking New Board Members

We are seeking individuals who are passionate about our mission. No previous board experience is required. We believe a diverse board is a better board; we encourage applicants from historically and systemically marginalized backgrounds and communities to apply, especially women of color and trans women. 

We are a working board. This means, in addition to overseeing the operations of the organization, board members carry out the board’s directives. A working board is a transitional stage as a mostly volunteer nonprofit builds sustainable support. This article provides more details on working boards.

As a working board, there is ample opportunity for board members to contribute and build their experience and background in a range of areas, including in:

  • Fundraising
  • Activism and organizing
  • Non-profit administration or media law
  • Finance

These specific needs are in addition to overseeing our mission, strategy, and programmatic work to challenge misogyny and transmisogyny and advance an intersectional feminist vision.

EXPECTATIONS

We are looking for individuals to join our volunteer working board who will:

  • Prepare for and attend monthly (virtual) board meetings;
  • Actively participate in at least one sub-committee (Fundraising, Organizing, Fellowship/Mentorship Programs, Communications, Finance, Nominations);
  • Work with other board members in contributing to program development and content creation in support of the IRMS mission;
  • Work between board meetings to support goals of organization (e.g., reviewing grant proposals, developing mentorship curriculum, etc).

We estimate board members will spend 5-10 hours per month on their board commitments. Board members serve a two-year term.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Please send a C.V. and a cover letter detailing your interest in the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism and what you would bring to the board of directors to contact@theirms.org.
