The Governors of FfWG act as both trustees of the charity and directors of the company. They are elected at the Annual General Meeting and hold office for three years, with an option to be re-elected for a further three years. Two members of the Board are ex officio representatives from BFWG. They are all passionate about women’s education and want to ensure that the charity is as successful as it can be.

To enable this, Governors come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of skills. They come from higher education, the law and the investment sector. Our current Board members are:
