The Society of Women Leaders and its operations are governed through a structure of volunteer sub-committees let by the SWL Executive Team and the National Advisory Sub-committee. This structure has been ratified by SWL members and Australian Red Cross, and ensures the SWL model is low cost to administer and allows us to focus on the business we do best: building a truly successful circle of giving.

A summary of our governance structure and terms of reference can be found here.

We have a number of official sub-committees in place. Members of these subcommittees are outlined below.

If you would like to know more about the Governance of SWL or if you would like to apply for a role on an SWL sub-committee, please contact Society of Women Leaders National Chair, Susan Wynne.
