We’re seeking a Project Assistant & Marketing Volunteer to work on the Gender Equality Champion of the Year Award 2025 campaign.  

This is a remote voluntary position, working around 12 hours per month.


The Gender Equality Champion of the Year Award is an international award presented to organisations that showcase a strong commitment to gender equality. Since its launch in 2022, the award has been instrumental in acknowledging leaders in gender equality and highlighting their exceptional practices.

By doing so, it facilitates the adoption and enhancement of these practices throughout the sector with the ultimate goal of fostering improved gender equality across the industry. The application process itself has been designed as a valuable tool for organisations to evaluate their current gender equality practices and easily identify areas that have room for development.
