As a charity operating in 21 countries, the Movember Foundation complies with a range of regulatory and governance obligations. We take these responsibilities very seriously and are committed to best practice levels of transparency, accountability and governance.

 

Leadership & Governance Structure

The Movember Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, who delegate part of their work to specialised committees to ensure that the organisation holds itself to the highest standards.

 

 

 

Movember Foundation Board of Directors

The Board's role is to ensure that the Movember Foundation maintains the highest standards of performance, governance, accountability, transparency and cost to fundraising ratios. The Board annually reviews the performance of the CEO and the Executive Director of Programmes. Our Board is skills-based, with members each bringing a wide range of expertise and experience.

In keeping with the Movember Foundation’s focus on minimising administrative costs, all Board members are unpaid for their directorships.
The below mentioned Board Members also constitute (in the same composition) the Board of Movember Europe.
