Job Description

We currently have a six-person board chaired by Ania Calderon. We are seeking up to three new board members to help guide the organization’s evolution. 

 

Board of Directors Responsibilities

Global Integrity Board Members:  

  • Steer the organization. The Board meets four times a year, for 2-3 hours each time. Pre-pandemic, one of these meetings was held in person in Washington, D.C., with the other three meetings held virtually. Moving forward, we hope to find the occasional opportunity for in-person meetings, but remote participation will likely be the norm. Additional time may be required for work on committees, including our standing Governance, and Finance and Audit, committees. Board members will also be expected to play an active role in supporting our fundraising activities as we navigate a changing funding landscape.
  • Champion Global Integrity. Board Members are critically important to helping Global Integrity thrive. Board members are expected to serve as ambassadors for the organization by helping to cultivate new funders, board members, or partners; speaking about or on behalf of Global Integrity with different constituencies; or making time to attend events, among others.  
  • Ensure financial accountability.  Board members act as Trustees of the organization’s assets, and exercise oversight to ensure that it is well-managed and that its financial position remains sound.
