Interested? Then send us an email saying who you are and why you'd like to volunteer to contact@women-ww.org.

I have really loved my time at WWW. It has given me an insight into how women are affected at every level of supply chains. It has also taught me how workplaces can vary across different cultures in regards to how women are treated. It has also made me more conscientious about what I buy and where I buy it from. I had great fun working with the team who are really dedicated and passionate about what they do.
