Volunteering and its Suprising Benefits

At this time of lockdown and uncertainty, it's all too easy to spiral down into a vortex of despair and fear! Managing your psychological well being needs to be high on your priority list and we have a great way to help....


It's a known fact that volunteering can help you expand your network, learn new/refine existing skills, progress in your career, and even feel a much greater sense of well-being. 

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be not only life-enhancing but in many aspects, life-changing.  

Supporting and giving to others can help you to protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a real sense of purpose - especially in times of crisis. 

The more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience - yet, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving of your time and effort even in the most simple of ways can help organisations that need you, and at the same time, you get to improve your health and happiness - and oft times work for causes that you are passionate about. 

We're calling all people on lockdown, who are seeking a reason to feel cheerful and fulfilled, to check out the volunteer opportnities on our website. There are global roles, working with PWN Global, and local roles that are focused on supporting a specific city network. Almost all the roles advertised are possible to do on a virtual basis - so perfect for you to get involved whilst you're sat at home and the boredom is starting to set in. 

If you don't see a role that's suitable for you, but you just know you have something to offer, get in touch - you may be able to offer something that we didn't even know we needed!!

We look forward to hearing from you about your respective talents and how you'd like to get involved with helping us to advance gender balanced leadership around the world.
