IWDA is an Australian-based organisation, resourcing diverse women’s rights organisations, primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and contributing to global feminist movements to advance our vision of gender equality for all.

VISION: Gender equality for all

PURPOSE: To defend and advance the rights of diverse women and girls

VALUES: Feminist, Accountable, Collaborative, Transformative

OUR GOALS 2020-2023:

1.      Resource and contribute to a resilient and vibrant feminist movement

2.      Promote systemic change towards gender equality for all

3.      Build a resilient and relevant feminist organisation

IWDA works in partnership with gender equality focused organisations in Asia and the Pacific; with international women’s movement coalitions; and with government and academic institutions in Australia to address the practical and structural barriers to gender equality. IWDA’s partnership work seeks to achieve transformational systemic change in order to realise our vision of gender equality for all.

As part of this contribution, we take actions to decolonise our approach to feminism and development. We want to become the best we can be in the world at north-south partnerships.  This means we seek to understand and leverage our locational power so that we know when to:

STEP UP: and use our power to leverage resources and access for women’s rights organisations, and make our own contribution to feminist movements

STAND WITH: feminist movements in solidarity and amplify the work of global south actors

STEP BACK: when others are better placed to take the lead.


The Relationship Fundraising Coordinator will drive the acquisition, engagement, management and retention of IWDA's major donors and bequestors. The role focuses on developing and implementing a long-term strategy and stewardship program for major donors and bequestors, and cultivating and nurturing new and existing relationships with donors.
