[closed] NEWS: Become a member of MEX’s new Advisory Group

We are seeking a range of perspectives including people with expertise in social justice, philanthropy, networks and power from within and beyond the migration and refugee field.

Migration Exchange is appointing a new Advisory Group. The role is approximately six days a year, with meetings taking place online and a loss of earning honorarium is available. Read below to find out who MEX is, what we do, and how to apply. We held an online Q&A on 22nd March, to view the recording contact Li-En at li-en@global-dialogue.org. If you need support or further information, please get in touch. The closing date for applications is 4th April 2023. 

Following the development of our new strategy framework, Migration Exchange (MEX) is appointing an Advisory Group. The board of trustees for Global Dialogue, our host organisation, holds ultimate legal and financial accountability for MEX, and delegates decisions on strategic direction and management to its Advisory Group. 

We are looking for up to nine people to join the Advisory Group, and expect that this will include: three people working, volunteering or with other experience in the migration and refugee field; three from allied social justice fields such as gender justice, disability justice and racial justice; and three people currently working in funders within the MEX network. 

We expect that the Advisory Group will: 


      1. Bring a blend of skills and perspectives relevant to MEX’s mission 
      2. Broaden MEX’s network, understanding and perspective across geographies and issues 
      3. Commit collectively to providing challenge and holding the staff team to account – helping us balance our ambition to be bold and take risks with our legal and fiscal responsibilities, and values 
      4. Be able to devote sufficient time to MEX, to attend meetings remotely or in person, to read and comment on materials and to help to shape and uphold a positive dynamic for the Advisory Group.

Deadline: 4th April 2023
