Deadline to apply: Sunday, August 25th (11:59pm)

Position Description:

Anova is the result of the unification between London’s Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London, two organizations that came together with the vision to provide improved services to our community.

Anova is seeking new board members that will commit and contribute to moving us boldly into the future. The board meets at 5:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month and the expected time commitment is approximately 4 hours a month (September-June).

We believe an inclusive world of shared power where everyone lives freely without fear of violence is possible. We are working to create change to eliminate patriarchal patterns that result in gender-based sexual violence and inequality.

Anova is built on four pillars: shelter, support, education, and advocacy.

All of the services previously available through Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London are still be available with improvements, including improved accessibility, streamlined service, more service options at our four sites, improved services for children, enhanced sexual violence and prevention work for youth, and an integrated 24-hour helpline.

As a Board, we strive to expand the voices contributing at the Board level and would benefit from the perspectives of: marginalized groups, rural experience, LGBTQ2+ identified folks, Indigenous Peoples, male identified individuals, newcomers, and those with lived experience. As a part of our board, you will use your skills, experience, and passion to help us work towards a world without violence.
