We are England’s first women’s museum. Our story began in 2015 as a positive protest and since then we have created pop-up events and exhibitions exploring the rich social, political and cultural history of East End women. We have a proudly community-centred ethos, and have worked collaboratively with a range of brilliant partners and volunteers.
We are a registered charity (number 1188775), governed by a Board of Trustees. Each of our trustees brings expertise from different sectors that is vital to our small organisation. As some of our committed and long-serving trustees reach the end of their terms, we are looking for a Treasurer along with a number of other Board members.
We ask that our trustees commit approximately eight hours per month to their role. They attend one monthly meeting (up to two hours, held online), review documentation and support with a range of tasks according to their skills.
By joining our Board of Trustees you will be part of a supportive team of people who are passionate about women’s history and redefining what a museum can be for people in the East End and beyond. You will be part of a growing charity and have opportunities to develop your experience of governance and broaden your CV.
Please note that this is a non-executive voluntary role and therefore unremunerated. We do not anticipate that trustees will incur expenses in the fulfillment of their duties, however we can offer reimbursement of any reasonable out of pocket expenses .
We are a museum for everyone and we want our team to represent a wide range of perspectives and experiences. We welcome applications from anyone passionate about women’s histories and particularly people with perspectives underrepresented on the boards of museums, who include people of Global Majority heritage, LGBTQIA+ people and D/deaf and disabled people.
