Equally Ours vacancy: Chair

Help make a reality of people’s equality and human rights in the UK. Could you be our new Chair?

Equally Ours’ vision is a just and compassionate society, where we are free from harm and can all contribute and flourish, whoever we are, whatever we believe in and whatever we do and don’t have. A society that is equally ours.

Our mission is to advance people’s equality and human rights in the UK. We do this by connecting people, our members, and networks, and using our collective evidence, expertise, strength and influence to create change.

Our ten-year strategy (2022-2032), Together for social justice, sets out our bold agenda to increase equality and strengthen rights at scale. Our three big issues are law, climate and investment:

  • Protecting and improving the law on equality and human rights
  • Embedding climate justice into local and national strategies and policy on climate adaptation
  • Increasing investment in solutions to the root causes of inequality and rights abuse.

We are looking for a Chair with charity governance and leadership skills and experience, and a generous-spirited world view, to help us grow and keep increasing our impact.

We are a small, dynamic charity with a friendly, supportive board and staff team and an ambitious vision and mission.

You can read more about our strategy, and our latest Trustees’ report and financial statements. You can find out about our team and our funders.
