The Women’s Earth Alliance team is excited to introduce one of our newest family members--Gillian Wilson! Gillian, or Gill as she prefers to be called, joins WEA as the Interim Operations Director at a point of inflection. While co-directors Melinda and Amira prepare for and nurture the new additions to their families, Gillian will be at WEA’s helm ensuring the continued impact of our global programs.
Gillian comes to WEA from our bay-area sister organization—International Development Exchange (IDEX)—where she has served since 2002. While at IDEX, Gill held a range of leadership positions transitioning from an Executive Assistant Intern in 2002 to the Operations Manager in 2004, to the Communications Director in 2005 and ending her tenure with IDEX as the Director of Finance and Administration in 2011. Gillian is proud to have been part of an era of impact and success at IDEX, that raised the organization’s profile and that of their grassroots partners.
We could not be happier we found Gill. She is a diligent, hard working, and self-motivated professional with a great mind for detail. She is the jane-of-all-trades, always keeping up to date on the latest in financial administration, website SEO, nonprofit social networking, and relational database management! WEA could not be more excited about Gill and hope you will join us in welcoming her to the WEA family!
