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.
