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.

The Communications team is responsible for WIAN’s original content and branding, managing our contributor programme and social media following, and the organisation’s wider PR and marketing strategy.
