Join the IPWS Board of Directors!

IPWS Summit (320 of 320)

The International Professional Women’s Society (IPWS) provides platforms for dynamic women to connect, build networks, foster personal growth and develop professionally. IPWS Board Members make a difference by working towards our Vision of connecting professional women and being an influential community in Shanghai and globally, based on our key values – Inspire, Grow, Lead, Connect and Embrace Diversity.

Have you got a personal passion for building and supporting a community of professional women? Maybe you’ve been a Mentor on our Mentor Walks program and keen to give back to the community? If you are interested in joining the IPWS Board of Directors, made up of dedicated volunteer IPWS members, please submit an application to IPWS President Tiziana Figliolia at by Friday, July 8th. In your application, please briefly explain your interest, expertise and intended board function, as well as attach a recent CV. We will be in contact with you as soon as you submit your application. All open positions are listed below. The current Board of Directors will review all applications for open Board positions, meet with final candidates, and propose the slate of executives to IPWS members for confirmation in the fall.

To ensure the continuity and stability of the Board of Directors, and of IPWS as a whole, some of the current IPWS Board Members will renew their candidacy to serve on the Board for another term. This renewal is subject to approval by the current Board of Directors. However, some Board Members will leave us, and we are looking for enthusiastic new board members to join this dynamic group.

The new Board will work alongside the current Board during the summer for a smooth transition into the new membership year starting September 2016.

Due to the anticipated number of applications, please submit your application no later than July 8th. Thank you!
