Board of Directors and Advisors

Any vacancies for our Board of Directors will be posted here. We always welcome expressions of interest to support us; consultancy and advisory roles are especially appreciated.

It should be noted that Turtle Dove is a female only social enterprise, and this extends to our Board of Directors. This was a conscious decision as we want to create a working environment that reflects our ambitions and expectations of wider society; we want to see a world where more females hold positions of power, authority and respect. With a strong ethos of ‘women supporting other women’, we hope to create a positive and encouraging example for the young women we work with.
