Recruitment of Permanent Board
The ongoing Board will be appointed. The recruitment process itself will be managed by an independent committee and external recruitment process determined by the interim Board.
The purpose for an appointed permanent Board is to ensure that the Board has the right skills, and experience to successfully deliver WorldPride 2023 and that there is diverse representation from across the broader community.
Under the Board are three constitutional committees:
· Strategy and Risk Committee which will oversee the event operational issues;
· Pride Committee which will oversee the diversity and inclusion aspects of the event; and
· Governance and Audit Committee which will oversee the enterprise risk issues and funding
The Interim Board will hold online community town halls in late April and early May to discuss with the community the structure and make up of each committee.
To sign up to be involved in this town hall email your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once the recruitment process is complete the three non SGLMG representatives from the Interim Board are automatically removed.
The Interim Board has appointed Kate Wickett (previous SGLMG Co-chair), as Sydney WorldPride’s interim CEO. Kate played an integral, leadership role in ensuring the success of the Sydney WorldPride 2023 bid. The interim CEO’s role is to implement the WorldPride 2023 operational plan, with an initial priority of securing funding from Government and negotiating the Licence agreement with InterPride.
A permanent CEO will be recruited through an external agency once funding is secured, and the new permanent Board is appointed.
