On International Women’s Day we want to celebrate and highlight the role, contribution and perspective of women. As an organisation we are proud to be led by a female Chair but we have a long-term, ongoing commitment to equality.

It’s 2018 and yet women are still under-represented in physical activity, spending less time playing sport than men. 13 years of delivering parkrun in thousands of locations around the world has shown us first-hand that women are more likely to feel excluded, unwelcome and uncomfortable about participating in physical exercise.

We are simply not prepared to accept this uncomfortable truth.

As we work to break down the barriers to participation, we are committed to equality of opportunity within our Trustee Board and throughout our organisation to ensure that diversity, equality and fairness are reflected in the decisions we make as a business.

Our latest progressive vacancy offers talented people the opportunity to apply to join our Board as a Trustee of parkrun Global. And we’re ripping up the rule book:

No previous Board experience = essential.

We’re more interested in life experiences over professional experience.

Are you motivated by social impact?
Do you have an international perspective?
Are you passionate about diversity, inclusivity and giving young people a voice?
Are you the next Trustee of the charity delivering one of the world's greatest health and wellbeing interventions?

If so, we’d love to hear from you. Follow this link to find out more and apply.

Our commitment to equality is ongoing. We pledge to #PressforProgress.

Closing date for applications: Friday 30 March 2018
