All INEE working groups are recruiting new members! 

Application deadline: 13 January 2023

INEE working groups are formal network spaces that facilitate members to work collectively on specific focus areas. Each working group has an INEE Coordinator and is led by a volunteer leadership team composed of individuals from among the group’s roughly two dozen members. Working group membership is voluntary; there is no financial obligation or compensation. Find out more in these general terms of reference for INEE working groups. 

Following a recent restructuring process, INEE is currently inviting applications from INEE members to join all eight active working groups. 

Who may apply?

Any INEE member may apply to join a working group as an individual or as a representative of their organization. Members with lived experience in crisis-affected contexts, or working within an organization directly engaged in education in emergencies work, are particularly encouraged to apply. 

How can I apply?

Applications can be submitted, by the deadline listed, using the designated form for each working group (see below). Through the form, each applicant must submit a CV, a one page statement of interest, and a one-page letter of support from their organization (if applying as an organizational representative).

All applications must be submitted in English. INEE can provide language support to complete the application if needed. Please contact memberservices@inee.org
