Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West Inc. Board Positions


Due to recent Board resignations, members of Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West (WHWBSW) are invited to express their interest in joining our Board.

Applications are invited from women. We strongly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities to apply.

WHWBSW is a regional women’s health promotion service, committed to improving the health and well being of women in the Barwon South West region. We provide regional leadership and support to three key priority areas: prevention of violence against women, improving women’s sexual and reproductive health outcomes, and advancing gender equity.

WHW BSW is funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.

The Board is made up of 9 women from across the Barwon South West region. The Board plays a critical role in governance, promoting the health of the organisation and ensuring diligent oversight of business and compliance performance.

The Board meets monthly, with the option to participate in face to face and teleconference meetings. There are training and development opportunities available and day or overnight travel required several times a year. Board members do not receive fees for their service, however necessary expenses are reimbursed.
