THE MANGROVE CORE TEAM

The Mangrove Collective is a women-founded and women-led entity. The Collective is led by a Core Team of women leaders who believe in the diversified, non-conventional expression of women's leadership in the social impact ecosystem.

We therefore practise co-leadership, non-hierarchy and self-leadership. 

We believe that the value and significance of leadership and influence in the sector should be dissociated from organisational titles, salary figures, full-time employment status and where, how often and how much one chooses to work. We believe in making 'work' work for us; not the other way around. We acknowledge the varying levels of time and effort women desire to contribute to the sector depending on their life-stages and circumstances, and are committed to creating a culture that focuses on the well-being of our Core Team.

Rather than making the organisation define us, we choose to evolve the purpose, focus and functions of The Mangrove Collective based on the passion and unique contributions each Core Team member brings to Mangrove, in each season.
