Board Recruitment

Recruitment for volunteer directors to join the board of Dublin LGBTQ Pride CLG

Posted on Friday, February 21, 2020 - Back to News Stories

Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride CLG is a not-for-profit organisation that advocates for the equal rights of LGBTQ+ people, both locally and internationally by raising public awareness of discrimination in society and issues affecting the lives of LGBTQ+ people through events, such as our famous Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride Festival & Parade and other activities through the year.

As the Festival has grown over the last decade, so has the scale of operations. In 2019 we finally moved from being an entirely volunteer-led organisation to hiring a small core staff, which is supported by a loyal volunteer corps during the Festival and other events. We are now working with governance consultants to increase both the size and the skill base of our volunteer Board.

We are looking for potential candidates who are passionate about LGBTQ+ equality, who may enjoy a huge party (although that is not obligatory!) and who are willing to share their expertise.
