We envision a global social impact sector that practices feminist leadership and sustains organisations embracing feminist principles and culture at all levels.
We work to equip individuals and institutions within the global social impact sector with feminist tools and strategies; mobilise and advocate for feminist leadership at all levels; and hold the sector accountable to parity and representation.
The FAIR SHARE Monitor and commitment focuses on increasing the number of women in leadership positions within the global social impact sector. When we say women, we mean everyone identifying as a woman - transgender, intersex, cisgender- from all corners of the world and no matter their journey towards leadership.
But this is only one piece of the puzzle needed to increase diversity among leadership. The future leadership teams of the sector should represent the diversity of their staff and the people they work with, bringing in leaders from all genders, races, ages, nationalities, economic and social backgrounds.
With FAIR SHARE we seek to contribute to a wider debate on diversity, inclusion and intersectionality, and ultimately open the doors for a new generation of leaders that change their organisations and the world.
