Behind The Scenes

The WIAN team is a collective of like-minded women who understand how difficult it is for recent graduates to find permanent, paid roles within the international sector, and how lack of opportunity, information and mentorship continues well on into a woman's career.


The Operations team is responsible for the overall management of WIAN’s day-to-day activities and internal processes, people management, HR and recruitment and ensuring that each team runs efficiently behind the scenes.
