Non-hierarchy

AWS is committed to a non-hierarchical, consensus-building organizational structure. Although the executive director has the legal responsibility for the supervision of all staff, AWS has always strived to create a non-hierarchical approach to staff management, performance and accountability. Every person has equal say, voice and responsibility.

Every staff member must take responsibility for their own work performance and must be self-reflective and open to feedback from other staff.  Each of our staff is a vital part of AWS. We are committed to the ongoing improvement of our own work and to helping co-workers to reach their fullest potential. In doing so, we improve our chances of attaining our shared goal of providing high quality direct services, community building and organizational infrastructure to end violence against women.
