FAR’s governance structure consists of a Steering Committee composed by feminists representing constituencies and organizations that have regional representation and work at the national level.The Steering Committee members are the main focal persons of FAR in their regions.
In January 2020, our alliance welcomed two new members from the Caribbean and Central Europe, who will provide guidance and support to achieve FAR’s goals in the next three years along the other Steering Committee members in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Arab region, North America and the Pacific Islands. The alliance’s current global coordinator is the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL), who is also a standing member of the Steering Committee in order to continue with its fiduciary responsibility for FAR.
