Collectively, the World Board leads the WAGGGS Global Team, sets strategies, policies and direction for a more dynamic and relevant global organisation and strives to provide increasing support and value to Member Organisations. 

The World Board is committed to listening and continuous learning, to being innovative, open and inclusive, and to sustaining a collaborative and inspiring environment for staff and volunteers in order to fulfil WAGGGS’ Mission and Vision. 

As a result, the World Board has decided to open up the opportunity to a young woman under 30 to join the World Board for the remainder of the triennium (until 2020), to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Anne Guyaz.
We invite Member Organisations to nominate suitable individuals under the age of 30 for this position. We greatly value your active partnership and careful judgment in identifying the most talented, versatile and committed young woman to join the WAGGGS Global Team at World Board level.
