Volunteer Roles

Volunteering for PWN Barcelona or for the PWN Global federation is a great way for you to learn how to practice what Forbes magazine calls, “permission leadership” or leadership without authority. Working in a non-profit organisation is one of the best experiences you can have. You will learn and grow and most importantly, leave a legacy.
If you need more convincing, take a look at some of the inspiring stories of our PWN members and volunteers. See how PWN has helped each of them both personally and professionally to overcome old, and face new challenges- that's the power of volunteering.

PWN Barcelona – Opportunities!

We are currently recruiting volunteers to support us with mentoring, membership, events, community relations, corporate and in-kind partnerships. This is an opportunity to be part of an engaged global community to promote gender equality and diversity, and to join the growing team of PWN Barcelona!
