IAWM is looking for Board Members

We are looking for additional board members who are dedicated to supporting and advancing awareness of women’s music. We are excited to have you help shape the future of this organization.

We are interested in working with a diverse  team of individuals from a variety of musical interests, specialties, and in various aspects and levels of their careers! As a volunteer board, we are especially seeking board members with skills in fundraising development, marketing, finance, global initiatives, equity, advocacy, membership, digital presentations, and relationship building. The IAWM 2025 Annual Concert will be presented in Europe. The 2025 Conference will take place in Bogotá Colombia.

Be part of the growth and expansion of  IAWM. We are committed to equitable diversity and inclusion of all members of the musical community. See more at

This is a very involved board, and we need folks that understand that they will need to carve time out to help with developments and activities of this organization. All labor is conducted through volunteer efforts. If you are willing to donate a minimum of 5-10 hours of active service per month (depending on your role), we need your selfless service. It is required that all board members must remotely attend at least 3 board meetings per year (Fall, Winter, Spring). Attending these meetings are critical, as we need you there to help us carry out this important work, and make it possible for music to be an equitable, diverse and inclusive field.
