The Board of Directors is the highest decision-making body of GAIN.
Board members consist of unaffiliated individuals who are appointed in their personal capacity and are drawn from leading development and scientific organisations.
The GAIN Board seeks to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in its membership consistent with the provisions of its Statutes and By-Laws. To give effect to this, it will seek to have membership where at least half of the voting members are women.
Board members are volunteers and receive no remuneration.
GAIN is currently searching for a new Board Chair to succeed Felia Salim from May 2024.
