The Steering Committee is the second highest decision-making body of GYG, which is why it is important to have both experienced and active people involved. Its primary responsibility is to implement decisions of the Congress (highest decision making body) and to steer the network on behalf of its members. The Steering Committee is regionally and gender balanced, with 2 members from each region (Africa, America, Asia Pacific, Europe).

Current Vacancies:

The vacancies are as follows:

  • Regional Coordinator (Africa)
  • Regional Coordinator (Asia Pacific)**
  • Regional Coordinator (Europe)
  • Activities Coordinator (Americas)****IMPORTANT: As per gender balancing rules, candidates for the Regional Coordinator position in Asia Pacific and Activities Coordinator position for the Americas must identify as a woman, as intersex and/or as trans, because the corresponding Steering Committee members in these regions identify as male.
