IMPOWR volunteer Contributors represent the backbone of the organization by providing the content of the database. Anyone is welcome to participate in IMPOWR and become a volunteer Contributor. Our Contributors research, write and edit the content in the IMPOWR database. We also encourage experts in the field to provide updates and oversight of the content. For more information, see the “How to Get Started” page.
Without the support of IMPOWR volunteers, the IMPOWR database would not be as invaluable as it is. In addition to our volunteer Contributors, volunteers also provide oversight, guidance and updates to the database content. Finally, IMPOWR Chairs and Vice-Chairs provide an organizational structure to the project. We encourage anyone with an interest in upholding women's rights in every country around the world to register as an IMPOWR volunteer.
