Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride advocates for the equal rights of LGBTQI+ people, both locally and internationally by raising public awareness of discrimination in society and issues affecting the lives of LGBTQI+ people through events, such as our famous Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride Festival & Parade and other activities through the year.
As the Festival has grown over the last decade, so has the scale of operations. In 2019 we finally moved from being an entirely volunteer-led organisation to hiring a small core staff, which is supported by a loyal volunteer corps during the Festival and other events.
As a response to the challenge of Covid, the Festival went online in 2020 and 2021 with a series of very successful virtual events focussing on the vital work of LGBTQI+ organisations & services. We now want to further enlarge and upskill our Board to enable to us to shape Dublin Pride into the future.
We are looking for potential candidates who are passionate about LGBTQI+ equality and who may enjoy a huge party (although that is not obligatory!). We are particularly interested in people willing to share their expertise in the following areas: Human Resources, Communications, and Company Secretarial skills.
We aim to reflect the diversity of the LGBTQI+ community within our board. We would particularly welcome female and transgender members of the LGBTQI+ community to offer applications, to grow their representation at board level.
