NAWO Structure & Board

NAWO is an incorporated not-for-profit association (effective FY12). Board positions are unpaid, comprising of senior executives (female and male) who are motivated to attract, develop and retain women in operational industries.

Selected Board positions also sponsor State Committees, as well as national committees (such as Communications and Sponsorships). Members of these committees are typically mid-level managers in large organisations.

NAWO Code of Conduct

Given the common focus on women and the non-commercial nature of the discussions NAWO is open to women from all major operational businesses* (eg manufacturers, heavy industry, material suppliers, distributors, logistics providers, retail supply chains). It is has been founded on a culture of trust and goodwill which results in the following governing behaviours:

  • Commercial issues that could violate Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) rules and guidelines are expressly out of scope ;
  • Discretion applies when sharing stories that may be sensitive in nature;
  • Potential invitees will not be prohibited from participating in events except by nature of their gender, organisational suitability or logistical constraints;
  • Attendees will not approach other organisation’s staff in a deliberate effort to poach;
  • Members will not represent themselves to the media or other such communities unless expressly agreed by the Board.

Harassment and Bullying Policy

NAWO is committed to securing and maintaining a healthy and safe association which is free from harassment and bullying. No form of bullying or harassment will be tolerated and disciplinary action may be taken against those responsible if it should occur. All members have a responsibility to comply with this policy. If you believe that you are being bullied or harassed, you should report the behaviour or incident to a NAWO Board member so that an attempt can be made to resolve the issue and ensure that the behaviour does not continue to occur in the future.
