Our business model and governance structure is unique.
Our organization relies on ‘Portfolios’ – areas that our membership has identified as being of key importance in the work we do to eradicate violence from women’s lives. Each member of our Board of Directors has a portfolio that they oversee, and to which each member is closely aligned, while having access and opportunity to inform other portfolios.
