Women in Voice Team


Meet the people

We put a lot of love and work into fostering and growing this community on a global level. Administration, representation, organization, running social media channels and global events, maintaining relationships across chapters, taking care of our mentorship programs and so much more: all of this is only possible thanks to our amazing volunteers, their passion and effort. Thanks so much to this incredible team!
