FOWODE has a functional governance structure comprised of the General Assembly and the Board of Directors through which strategic, policy and implementation decisions are made. The General Assembly, which is the apex decision-making body, is comprised of individual members who participate in making strategic decisions. Membership is open to women and men who share the values and goals of gender equality and equity, transparency and accountability, participation, tolerance, democracy and respect for human rights and peace.
