Our Committees

The Barcelona Women’s Network is run entirely by volunteers, many of whom put time and energy into serving on our various committees and in other key functional roles.

Committees assist the Executive Board by covering and managing one specific area. Each committee is led by a chair (or co-chairs) or team lead who takes care of its internal organization, coordination, distribution of tasks, etc., and who is the main point of contact with the Board. Every BWN members is invited – and encouraged – to get involved with a committee!

Thank you to the wonderful women who are currently serving in this capacity. We couldn’t do it without you!
